Like pigs at the trough Senators and MP’s heading to China despite tensions, with luck they’ll be arrested too

Canadian officials going ahead with China trip, despite tensions with Beijing

Despite the heightened state of political tension between Ottawa and Beijing, MPs and senators plan to proceed with a trip to China this week.

Senators Victor Oh and Joseph Day and MPs Michael Cooper, Geng Tan, Majid Jowhari and Chandra Arya will arrive in China on Jan. 5. The trip, which is being hosted by the Canada-China Legislative Association, comes after a Chinese official issued strong words about two Canadians who have been detained by Chinese authorities since early December.
