Chrystia Freeland wants to increase exports to China (but not oil)

In a recent speech in the House of Commons, Liberal MP Chrystia Freeland stated that “Canada’s share of exports to Asia has dropped by half.”

But does the Liberal Party really support exports to China? Not in the case of oil.

Canada’s ethical oil could be exported to China via pipeline (one built with ZERO taxpayers’ money, by the way) — but guess which party opposes that pipeline?

    What. the hell is her point anyway? It isn’t up to “Canada” to increase exports to China. It is up to Canadian people to sell more stuff to Chinese people, If the Chinese people want to buy stuff off Canadian people, and if Canadian people want to sell stuff to Chinese people. If the government is actively stopping this from happening, they can stop whatever they are doing. If that is not the case, they can just butt out and leave Canadians alone.

    What she failed to mention was that the Liberal government was in power from 1993-2006 and the Conservatives had a minority government 2006-2008. So blaming the Conservatives for declining sales to China is a joke.

  • China is a communist Third World hellhole that abuses its own people and North Koreans.

    Of course the Liberals have no problems empowering it.

    What will the Liberals do when other Asian states demand action on China encroaching on their waters?

      If your competitive advantage is slave labour then maybe you shouldn’t be a trading partner.

      • And yet the West trades with China.

        There is no benefit aside from cheap crap flooded into our markets (if you can call that a benefit).

    Yes our good friends the Communist Chinese. I guess the liberals want the peasants to forget that they and the media are ignoring the Canadian Christian couple being held in jail there, or the current efforts as reported in the media of crosses being torn down from church steeples. A minister was just sentenced to a year in jail for protesting this. Or the spying China does on our industries. But hey, iiberals, ndpers and large corporations love China, so who cares what the Canadian peasants think.

      The Chinese would like that to be so.

    That woman is a bimbo, perfect fit with Turdeau and his Libs.

      I can’t agree, a bimbo is a attractive but unintelligent female, unintelligent
      certainly, however she looks like someone hit her in the face with a shovel.

      She’s a two faced opportunistic member of the global elite, like Turdeau,
      a product of nepotism, the upper-class system and I suspect inbreeding
      from the look of her face.

      I think “cheap whore” is a more fitting description
