The Communist Party of China represents real China as poorly as the Communist Party of the Soviet Union represented real Russians. It doesn’t represent them. It oppresses them.
China’s foreign minister Wang Yi came to town, for meetings with Trudeau and Stephane Dion, the foreign minister. And they had a press conference.
Canadian reporters agreed on a joint question — and when Wang Li heard it, it lost his cool.
He attacked Canada’s free press and our right to ask questions of powerful people.
But look at Stephane Dion. Mr. Human Rights himself. Just standing there, meekly, blinking. Wishing his mummy was there. Didn’t say a word in defence of free speech or a free press.
Hey, do you miss Stephen Harper yet?
