Most Canadians ‘uncomfortable’ with prospect of free trade with China

Almost nine out of 10 Canadians are uncomfortable with the idea of deepening economic ties with China, and two-thirds want the Liberal government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to tie any future trade deal with Beijing to progress in human rights, according to a new public opinion survey.

The Nanos Research survey of 1,000 Canadians conducted for The Globe and Mail last week showed that 88 per cent are “uncomfortable” or “somewhat uncomfortable” with the idea of allowing Chinese state-owned corporations to take over high-tech Canadian firms and lifting restrictions Chinese investments in Alberta’s oil sands.

Given that the know nothing asshole in Ottawa is leading the charge who wouldn’t be?

    Yessirree, the Globe published this anti-free trade poll, but has been a strong backer of the pro-China lobby, and former International Trade Minister Crystallia Freeland’s, China-free-trade effort. And the elites in Ottawa will get their way on this. Once the “free trade” deal is signed, it will be interesting to see how the media elites monitor it.

    Imam Trudeau just wants to play Mr. Dressup more since he’s neglected his Chinese costumes recently.

  • WalterBannon

    Trudeau admires how Chinese slave labor and lack of environmental red tape shifts manufacturing from Canada to China.

    Plus he likes the payola and graft he gets from them.

  • He never hid his love for that communist dictatorship.

    NOW people are afraid of the “yellow menace”?

    Stupid, stupid people.
