China Hits Back At Chrystia Freeland, Says She ‘Can’t Help Speaking Without Thinking’

BEIJING — China rebuffed the latest broadside from Canada over its detention of Canadian citizens, rejecting the assertion that China’s behaviour poses a threat to all nations.

Instead, foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said Thursday that people from China could themselves be at risk following Canada’s detention of a Chinese telecom executive for “no reason.”

“What threat has China posed to Canada?” Chunying said when asked by journalists about the duelling allegations. “I think your foreign minister may be in a hurry, and can’t help speaking without thinking.”

A good lesson for our predatory political and corporate classes. Eventually the people you sold out your people to will turn on you. But soon forgotten until the next time.
