Yesterday I showed you the shocking news of Catherine McKenna serving as the vice chair of a committee of the government of the People’s Republic of China.
I’ve never heard of such a thing, have you? Of a Canadian government minister working for a foreign country’s government? Of course, it just adds to the crazy that Canadian taxpayers give China $1.6 million a year for the privilege.
It all makes sense. After all, China is Trudeau’s favourite country...
But I have some more news for you today. It’s about human rights — something that Trudeau says he cares about, too.
It’s about a human rights oriented NGO called UPR, which stands for Universal Periodic Review. They try to press certain governments to be more humane, by getting other countries to ask them about their human rights records.
Here are some of the questions these countries asked China:
The UK asked about China’s gulags in Xinjiang, where the ethnic minority called Uyghurs are held. They also asked about Tibet, and "the full range of human rights in China... "
I’m not going to go through all the questions, but as you can imagine, Donald Trump’s America just crushes it, with tough, smart, detailed questions:
Asks about the Uyghurs, and Tibetans and the Falun Gong. Asks about how China is undermining Hong Kong.
So what do you think Canada asked?
Here’s the full Canadian entry:
What steps is China taking to grant equal marriage and family protections to LGBTI couples in its new Civil Code?
Trudeau wants to know when they’re going to pass their gay marriage bill?
So that, what..? A gay couple in a prison for complaining about Mao can finally get married? In prison?
Yeah, Justin Trudeau doesn’t love China, and he doesn’t love the Chinese people. He loves the basic dictatorship of China. And of course he loves himself...
NEXT: I'm joined by the always-insightful Gordon Chang to dig into the details of the US trade war with China.
FINALLY: Your messages to me!
