Don Martin: Trudeau can’t keep delaying China revelations
Trudeau’s tipping point is already in sight.
The moment when Prime Minister Justin Trudeau knows he must resign for the sake of the party or the Liberals realize they cannot survive re-election under his leadership is close to us.
The story of raging China has ended a terrible year that lasted less than two months, for a prime minister who now spends his days gathering in private meetings or crisscrossing the country to attend meetings. Fund of the Liberal Party while using the ribbon cutting to disguise the trip. as official government business.
The latest dismissive reaction from the prime minister’s office to the growing demand for an investigation into allegations China tried to interfere in the election to help the Liberals secure another mandate is under way. The beginning resembles willful blindness for partisan interests.
And Trudeau’s attempt to distract from the ongoing controversy is clearly pathetic.
‘TITANIC CLASS TRASH’
Imagine this: minutes before Monday’s press conference, the prime minister expelled the popular TikTok app from government devices due to security risks from China, which comes at the right time when asking request you to convene an investigation into the climax of China’s manipulation of our electoral system. climax.
It is therefore likely that Trudeau sees a greater security threat in an app with limited deployment on government devices than the five-time warning about election manipulation from within a spy agency. So frustrated by his inaction that it became a Titanic-level leak.
The landscape and nature of China’s intervention is brutal: an anti-democratic foreign power engaged in dirty or illegal tactics to help the Liberal Party secure a different mission; a Liberal congressman accused of allegiance to Beijing, according to Global; and now the Globe and Mail reports that China has authorized a $1 million donation to the Pierre Elliot Trudeau Foundation, among other things, to erect a statue of old man Trudeau. And, with this in mind, the person Trudeau tagged to study the effectiveness of a panel overseeing the 2021 election on foreign threats ran that fund.
You can’t really create such a tangled web of incriminating evidence, and yet Trudeau is going after TikTok without any national security evidence suggesting a dance app for kids. being exploited by Chinese developers for nefarious purposes.
Here’s a helpful suggestion Trudeau tries so hard to ignore: When former spy agency leaders, opposition parties and even friend and former top adviser Gerry Butts unite to urge a meeting Some investigation into Chinese election interference, it’s time to surrender to this view. or explain in more detail why it’s a bad idea.
‘Specifically is dying for better coal’
The dirty tricks outlined in Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) documents are not a plot to shake Canada’s confidence in our electoral system, as Prime Minister Trudeau alleges . They are dead canaries demanding a better coal mine.
Add all this incendiary fuel to the flames of controversy over the past few months – possibly his poor choice of an anti-Islamic representative; the ongoing invasion of asylum seekers at Roxham Road; the ethical flaws of cabinet ministers Mary Ng and Ahmed Hussen; McKinsey’s messy consulting business; The delay in medical assistance falls short of gun control and death bills as well as the passport office and airport mess is still annoying – and you have to wonder the shipwreck How long can this freedom stay on track with NDP in caboose.
Trudeau cannot continue to delay revelations about China to a congressional committee looking into the matter.
The MPs on those committees never set their sights on finding the truth in those partisan clashes. Their aim is to shape the story to fit their party’s views by engaging witnesses with ludicrous questions, which may or may not have anything to do with the issue being examined.
Independent disclosure is required, be it a public investigation or an investigation by a respected Canadian with access to confidential documents and CSIS insiders to determine the extent, effectiveness, and electoral significance of any China-promoted interference in significant operations.
If Trudeau continues to hurl stones at an investigation, desperately deploying bogus distractions or grinning without answers to important questions, he will soon get there. tipping point where the only thing he should worry about is the clock counting down his remaining time. minister, pastor.
That is the key point.
