ERIN O’TOOLE – Justin Trudeau’s weak leadership is giving a free pass to the Chinese Communist Party
elected as an MP in the 2012 byelection for the riding of Durham, Erin O’Toole was
a candidate in the 2017 campaign to lead the Conservative Party of Canada; he
finished 3rd. He is again in
the current race to lead the party.
While the world battles the COVID-19 pandemic, the Chinese Regime is trampling on democracy and freedom in Hong Kong.
The Chinese Communist Party has a long history of ignoring the rules. The draft "security law" expected to be rubber-stamped by the National People's Congress effectively imposes martial law on the people of Hong Kong, and Canadians and supporters of freedom everywhere should be very concerned.
But we haven't heard a word about it from Justin Trudeau. And this isn't the first time he's been afraid to take a stand.
Our Prime Minister has said he admires China's "basic dictatorship", and he trusted the Chinese Regime when it was clear they were lying to the world.
His weak leadership is giving a free pass to the Chinese Communist Party.
While other leaders like the UK's Boris Johnson are charting a new path in their relationship with the Chinese Regime, Trudeau refuses to even criticize them for covering up the initial COVID-19 outbreak.
His Foreign Affairs Minister doesn't dare say the word "Taiwan". And we still hear nothing from our government about our two citizens being illegally held without trial in Chinese prisons.
Canada needs to be tougher, stronger and smarter in its dealings with the Chinese Regime.
