The virus trials between Canada and China are off ...
Are You Surprised?
Well no. I did not understand how it got going in the first place.
First, why would Canada agree to dealing with China on a virus (COVID-19) they allowed to get to Canada, and which saw many die as a result, many sick, and put our economy in a tailspin ... a country that refuses to allow the world to examine what happened.
Second, why would Canada agree to deal with China when China is holding two Canadians in jail on fake charges?
Third, why would Canada agree when there is an extradition process under way to send a Chinese Corporate executive to the USA?
Fourth, why would Canada think that such an agreement would be approved by the Chinese government given the above?
If ever there was a ‘mixed up’ Canadian government -- on an issue -- this is it.
What is it about this Canadian federal government and China?
I say thank God the whole thing crashed —— sadly it was not of Canada’s doing.
We, Canada, are lamenting it according to various news stories.
I mean holding Canadians on fake charges ...
... spreading a deadly virus around the world killing thousands ...
... making thousands sick, upending the global economy ...
... refusing to having others examine what happened ...
... dominating what is suppose to be a neutral World Health Organization ...
... and Canada wants to help this country develop a virus?
You’ve gotta be kidding!
