I’m getting increasingly uncomfortable with the Conservatives crawling around in bed with Communist China.
First there was Conservative President John Walsh’s bizarre “Happy Birthday” letter sent to the Communist Party of China (see here).
Then there was the unbelievable lack of response to Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Foreign Affairs Bob Dechert running around with his Chinese ‘journo’ girlfriend (see here).
And now, on the same day the US State Department issues an official message to pressure the Chinese to release the remaining 1989 Tiananmen Square prisoners (see here) our Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird sends his “condolences” to China for the murder of one of their citizens by a lunatic:
I just spoke to China’s ambassador to Canada to convey my deep condolences on the senseless killing of Chinese student Jun Lin.
This has absolutely nothing to do with inter-government relations so why did Baird send China an official statement?
A very short time ago the Conservatives use to freak-out when the Liberals did things to appease China but now seemingly are all too willing to grovel the same way.
We ridded ourselves of the pro-Chinese Power Corp type Liberals driving our foreign affairs a couple of elections ago right?
