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?
