Trudeau Stands Up to China


I’m just kidding.

Trudeau tries saving face after Stephane Dion got whipped by one of the paper tiger’s representatives:

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada has expressed its “dissatisfaction” with China after that country’s foreign minister publicly berated a Canadian journalist earlier this week.

Trudeau says freedom of the press is something that is very important to him and the job of the media is to ask tough questions.

In Ottawa on Wednesday, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi blasted a journalist from the web outlet iPolitics who asked about China’s human rights record, calling the question “irresponsible.”

Wang appeared visibly angry as he delivered the scolding at a joint news conference with Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Stephane Dion.

 Wang said the question was full of prejudice and arrogance and was totally unacceptable.

The iPolitics question was agreed to by a number of journalists representing several news organizations at the event, including The Canadian Press.


“Dissatisfaction”, eh? I bet that showed the Chinese.

When will Mr. Wang apologise?

Trudeau does not believe in Western freedoms and democracies himself so it is no wonder that, along with his crazy upbringing, he extols communist China’s virtues and lets slide any abuse toward the adoring popular press that got him elected.

But his handlers, no doubt, informed him that this incident was embarrassing. I mean – Dion just stood there and had his @$$ handed to him.

Trudeau is no leader who defends Canada’s citizens or interests. Everything is calculated.

I wonder of the staff at iPolitics now understand this.

    Complaining instead of calling Wang a dong is dorky.

    IPolitics part of CBC /CTV / Liberal incest machine

      Wasn’t expecting that. Now that was funny. I guess CBC/CTV etc also lack a sense of humour.

    We should require China to send us better-qualified Mandarins …

      They never come close to the ones from Japan, so I avoid them.

    Harper handled that a little better.

    • But Harper was also the one who let the Garratts rot there.

      At least he had the sense not to openly admire the Chinese communists.

    O/T – Trudeau is so bad that our big neighbour to the south has valid concerns about the drip, drip islamization of Canada. Americans are phoning the police in London, ON nonstop. Yah hoo – lol. Keep those phone calls coming. Our official languages are English and (reluctantly) French and those two are more than enough.

      I would imagine Windsor must be an upcoming hotspot, being right across from the vibrant cultural epicentre known as Detroit. 😉

    Remember folks that when his dad was the Prime Minister he was doing his year end interview on CTV and when asked, stated freely and without reservation, that the Polish people were asking for “too much freedom” from their Soviet overlords. Nice to see that some things just never change.

    • Read “Mao: the Unknown Story” by Jang Chung to learn how much Pierre loved the murderer Mao.

      Understand that the Poles have always been 3 bricks short of a full load. After all these years, they still have the urge to conquer their immediate neighbours.

        Sorry? What???

        • JJ Joseph

          Here’s a good example, Clause: Today, German troops are in Poland to take part in the military field training exercise “Anaconda” for the USA (not NATO). Poland is also starting construction of a US (again, not NATO) missile base for launching first-strike nuclear attack against Russia. Countries around Poland are rightly nervous about what Poland is up to. Poland figures that it’s smart enough to launch a nuclear attack on Russia before the Russians know what’s happening. Good luck with that! Definitely 3 bricks short of a full load.

    The ambassador just said what openly what our PM thinks about journalists: be fawning lap-dogs or shut up.

  • Alain

    Well now. Those bloody Chinese communists must be shaking in their boots now.

  • JJ Joseph

    I never understand people like the reporter at iPolitics. Like, what’s with the stupid question? Or do they ask such stupid questions because they simply don’t know what’s going on in the outside world? Can someone explain why it is that we always come away looking like a nation of retards?
