"Real change"? Why Power Corp, China (and maybe even Jean Chretien) are "back in the drivers seat" after Trudeau win

Rebel Staff

Justin Trudeau wasn't kidding when he said communist China was his favourite country.

Trudeau’s transition team is being led by a top China lobbyist in Canada named Peter Harder. Besides being president of the Canada-China Business Council, Harder is on the board of directors of Power Corp.

That’s the massive company that was the power behind the throne of pretty much every Quebec politician for a generation.

Power Corp also has huge government contracts in communist China, including, for example, the contract for the Beijing to Tibet railway — a political project designed to swamp Tibet, by bringing in millions of ethnic Chinese settlers, to stamp out any lingering Tibet culture or politics.

Power Corp run by the billionaire Desmarais family. Andre Desmarais, the president of the company, married Jean Chretien’s daughter. Chretien went to work lobbying China literally within weeks of stepping down as prime minister.

So forget about civil liberties or democracy being part of the Canada-China discussion now that Trudeau is in 24 Sussex.

“Trudeau said, at his Victory Speech, Quebec can now take it’s rightful place, in Canada” Translation. Quebec owns Canada once again……………..shudder!

Nathan W,
You are right, JT did not say that China was his favourite country. He said he admired their communist government and how they could make citizens disappear if they did not do what the government told them to do. 60 million citizens missing and counting. Of course they had to confiscate all the firearms first before they could make their citizens to do as they were told.

Deborah, you’re right that Harper represented Canada well internationally. That and the economy were his strengths. No doubt about that. But unfortunately, because of his total failure to make changing the culture within Canada a top priority, or even a priority at all, and his failure to use his influence and the levers of power to do anything about that (for example, helping Sun News Network survive the CRTC’s fatal backhand blows), we lost power and now everything is lost, internally and internationally. Harper was utterly blind to the need to change the progressive culture in Canada to a conservative culture, and now we are as a country going to pay for that, big time.

As Germans elected a Socialist Dictatorship in the 1930’s, so has Canada in 2015. Seems no one learns from history! Time will tell if my prediction is true. Given past Liberal Regimes, I have survived through, I suspect I am not far off the truth of the matter! Anything good for this Liberal Gov’t and various Liberal operatives will not end well for average Canadians! Batten down the hatches! We are due for one hell of a storm!

Does anyone remember Junior running from Sun reporters??? People should have known then, that this guy was trouble, at least daddy would have faced the press, and spun circles around their questions. PET was intelligent and quite entertaining sometimes. Junior, will be like the evil twin, because he lacks intelligence, and he doesn’t know the issues, and the saddest part of all, is that he doesn’t even realize that he is being played, by the UN, on the world stage. I don’t care what anyone says, under PM Harper"s leadership, he fought for Canada, and stood with Israel, and against that evil cesspool, the UN. And I for one commend him, and feel a great sense of pride in my country because of how he represented us.

“I kind have that little bit of suspicion how the left is using him as a “usefull idiot””
I thought that was a given. He messed up terribly if his “talks” weren’t scripted.

“It’s so hilarious, that the left relate the truth to fear mongering! When Jesus said “that the truth shall set you free!””

Deborah, the left are afraid of the truth.

“The underground economy is growing, and this is how we are going to have to try and survive, while living under this pompous ass, and his ship of fools.”

Food will also become more expensive so I suggest that if you have a yard, plant a vegetable garden, learn how to preserve/can/freeze the produce. Plant at least two apple trees (they need cross pollination) if you have the space. Even if you only have a patio or balcony you can still grow vegetables in containers.

I kind have that little bit of suspicion how the left is using him as a “usefull idiot” as he has demonstrated to not have in depth knowledge on many issue he tried to address. With his written speeches he did well, but off the cuff remarks left you wondering at times.

JT never said China was his favourite country.

We should be thankful to have someone with JT’s ears who actually understands China. Harper, in 10 years, never uttered a single word that demonstrated that he had any understanding whatsoever of how to deal with the Chinese.

(I’ve lived in China for 3 years)

Hey, when’s the last time you criticized Harper for not bringing up democracy with the Chinese?

Jimmy: Perhaps you see this as fear-mongering because you, indeed, are frightened by the truth! To those who come to theRebel, we are NOT afraid. We acknowledge the “truth” that we do not obtain from the mainstream media. What is wrong with theRebel pointing out the “behind the throne” machinations that are taking place on the Liberal political landscape? What is wrong with being told that the Wynne government which bribed Ontario voters with a promise of removing the ORPP, has lied to us, and will be implementing it? What is wrong with being informed that gun registry will be done through the “back door” with this Liberal government? What is wrong with learning that Justie is going to turn Canada into a land of pot and bunnies (the Liberal government is hiding down its bunny hole and cancelling its role in the allied coalition against ISIS)? What is wrong with being told that the mainstream media are extremely biased and partisan towards the Liberals? (Many Canadians had already come to that conclusion by themselves anyway.) What is wrong with being told that this so-called “green energy” is extremely expensive and unreliable and that it is being pushed onto Canadians because there is a buck to be made by special interest groups? What is wrong with learning that no carbon tax, cap-and-trade, policy, etc. will have any impact on “greenhouse” emissions because the money extracted from the public through all of these schemes will NOT be used for its intended purpose? How many years has it been since the UN and world nations have been involved in such nefarious schemes with zero impact on CO2 levels? Isn’t it going on 30 years now? So, Jimmy, spout and rail all you want on theRebel, but a growing segment of the Canadian population will keep coming back to this site! And, for the very simple reason: “We want to hear the OTHER side of the story!”

For all the crying, whining, and accusing the lefties do at the Conservatives for being bought and paid for by the big bad evil oil corporations, the left politicians do precisely the same thing but with different corporations and communist governments. Yet you never hear the lefties complain about those politicians. Lefties, the very definition of hypocrites.

We should never have tried to appease kebec – in fact we should have simply told the we do not want them and MADE them leave.

Canada would be a far better place without kebec

Actually Jimmy, it’s reality mongering, you just can’t deal with reality, like all head-in-the-sand frightened little socialists. Hey, have you signed up to house some Syrian “refugees” yet? What’s keeping you??

Why do you come here just to be a shit disturber Jimmy? You have friends at CBC. You know what a small world it is. If I were going to a website just to be a thorn in the ass of everyone, I’d be concerned about the inevitable repercussions. Eventually it will catch up to you, and even obamacare won’t save you.

here’s a good primer on these Demarais pricks


Born in Sudbury and moved to Montreal, financed by the communist pigs of Paris, France and paid for every election since the 1960s (perhaps earlier).

If you see a Demarais, spit in their face and kick ’em in the nuts – hard!!!

Demarais and Dussault families of Montreal have force fed french and socialism on the rest of Canada for decades in one form or another.

Brian fucking Mulroney douche bag is a liberal with a PC stamp (as is Peter MacKay). The Demarais family got fed up with “dead pete” and chose to run Canada through a different party in the 1980s – enter asshole Brian – another fucking Quebec lawyer.

And he hatestream assholes media in the 1980s were complicit in ensuring no one ever knew.
