‘Don’t step out of line’: Confidential report reveals how Chinese officials harass activists in Canada

  • So Xi would really appreciate it if people didn’t bring up female infanticide, North Korean sex slavery, corporate espionage and the actual death toll of Tienanmen Square?

    • He would be most appreciative if we simply let him loot our nation in peace.

      • Indeed.

        We mustn’t mention the corruption, either, nor the “little emperor” mentalities he and his imperious buddies possess.

    When it comes to enemies of Canada, Canadian elites and Canadian politicians have almost always been as blind as blind can be.

      No, they are not blind. They only care about themselves and how they can benefit financially and to hell with the country and its citizens.

      • Exactly so, the Liberals are lining up for a share of the spoils.
