Why is Canada’s Foreign Minister sending China condolences over murder?

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?

    I’m not in favour of the lick-spittle over eager Canadian beaver panda-ring that ties us to Chinese economic interests. This article makes more sense now than when it first came out two years ago.

    Are all Canadians responsible for some creep who murders someone no matter whether they are Canadians or from another country? It appears our Foreign Minister thinks so. Has it anything to do with the fact he’s an exchange student and perhaps the government feels responsible for their safety? There’s really no other reasonable explanation IMO.

    China has a lot to apologize for, we’d be hard pressed to get an apology from them. Appears our Conservative government is going beyond the Liberal governments of Chretien and Martin in sucking up to Commie China.

    I do not see anything wrong with this, although I do agree with you concerning the other cases. I’ll probably be a lone voice, but there it is.

    I think we need to lead by example therefore I agree with the message sent to China.

  5. fhl Says:

    that we honour and respect people and show respect for the murdered man and his family that is how we lead by example
    the man who was murdered did nothing to deserve such a horrific death

    I think it was classy of Baird to send his regrets over the horrific thing done to a Chinese exchange student. However, the student himself put himself in harms way by getting involved with ‘Lucas’ in the first place. Did he not sense danger? Or was he so pleased to have a Canadian friend that that obscured any misgivings he may have had?

    Not only have the CINOs taken to making kissy-kissy with communist China, they have progressed to much more love-making with Saudi Arabia … the foulest of the foul.
