Justin Trudeau, the Liberal Prime Minister of Canada, finds himself up against increasingly vocal demands that he be ousted. Opposition to his authoritarian regime is growing amid concerns about a sham inquiry into his abuse of the Emergencies Act and revelations that Canada’s spy agency warned about Communist Chinese interference in Canadian elections, but Trudeau did nothing to stop it.
Chinese diplomats quietly issued warnings to “friendly” influential Canadians in early 2022, advising them to “reduce their contact with federal politicians to avoid being caught up in foreign-interference investigations by Canada’s spy agency,” the Globe and Mail reported in a bombshell story that is rapidly circulating among the Canadian population.
According to the report, “secret and top-secret Canadian Security Intelligence Service documents viewed by The Globe and Mail reveal how China sought to protect its network of ‘Canadian friends,’ a euphemism for Chinese Communist Party (CCP) assets. The Globe and Mail described the CCP ‘Friends’ circle as “a community it relies on to build relations, influence and covertly gather information from MPs and senators.”
Apparently, one of the CCP’s ‘Friends’ is none other than Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
The Globe reported on Friday how China employed “a sophisticated strategy to seek the return of a minority Liberal government and to defeat Conservative politicians considered to be unfriendly to Beijing in the 2021 federal election.”
The tactics, outlined in secret CSIS reports, included “disinformation campaigns, undeclared cash donations and the use of international Chinese students, studying in Canada, as campaign volunteers to support preferred Liberal candidates.”
The classified documents show that “Chinese influence operations went beyond election interference, employing tactics to target Canadian legislators and sway public opinion through proxies in the business and academic communities,” the Globe added.
In response to The Globe story, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told reporters at a Friday news conference that he “expects CSIS to find out who is leaking the secret reports, and stuck to his long-held view that Chinese interference operations did not affect the overall results of the 2019 and 2021 elections,” the report noted.
“It’s certainly a sign that security within CSIS needs to be reviewed. And I’m expecting CSIS to take the issue very seriously,” Trudeau said.
