Will Trudeau address China’s bogus “crackdown” on pollution?

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

China’s government says it's cracking down on the illegal expansion of its coal and steel industries and investing in wind and solar to combat pollution.

Meanwhile, emissions are on the rise and 1.36M people per year die from breathing in toxic pollutants.

This is real pollution that needs to be cleaned up.

Canada’s Prime Minister will have a chance to address this issue when he meets with Chinese politicians to discuss free trade and climate change.

Trudeau says a strong relationship with China means a better Canada, but do we really believe he can convince China to do anything about this crisis?

Not only is China the biggest emitter of greenhouse gases on the planet, but they’re also the largest contributor to a recent increase in global GHGs.

China did invest heavily in the solar industry and manufacture panels cheaply. In fact, they’re putting US solar companies out of business because they just can’t compete.

But, while China may produce panels, actual solar power in the country is wasted because it fails to reach the grid due to inadequate connections.

Meanwhile, North Americans bend over backwards to implement expensive green strategies to combat pollution but nothing we do will negate China’s emissions which are almost double those of Canada and the US combined!

Despite what Trudeau says, a strong relationship with China only means they get a free pass on pollution.

Trudeau just landed in China, the Fake News CTV and CBC are all over it, adoring their Boss and Hero.
With some luck Justin will pick up a sweater or something and will forget to pay for it, therefore receiving 10 years in jail.
Canada would be saved.

This deserves a a repost -

Justin Trudeau walks into a Bank he has no account with to cash a cheque. As he approaches the cashier he says, "Good morning, Ma’am, could you please cash this cheque for me?”

Cashier: “It would be my pleasure sir. Could you please show me your ID?”

Trudeau: “Truthfully, I did not bring my ID with me as I didn’t think there was any need to. I am Justin Trudeau, the leader of the Liberal Party of Canada!!!!”

Cashier: “Yes sir, I know who you are, but with all the regulations and monitoring of the banks because of impostors and forgers and requirements of the CIDC legislation, etc., I must insist on seeing ID.”

Trudeau: “Just ask anyone here at the bank who I am and they will tell you. Everybody knows who I am.”

Cashier: “I am sorry, Mr. Trudeau, but these are the bank rules and I must follow them.”

Trudeau: “Mon dieu. I am urging you, please, to cash this cheque.”

Cashier: "Look Mr. Trudeau , here is an example of what we can do. One day, Tiger Woods came into the bank without ID. To prove he was Tiger Woods he pulled out his putter and made a beautiful shot across the bank into a cup. With that shot we knew him to be Tiger Woods and cashed his cheque.

Another time, Andre Agassi came in without ID. He pulled out his tennis racket and made a fabulous shot whereas the tennis ball landed in my cup. With that shot we cashed his cheque.

So, Mr. Trudeau, what can you do to prove that it is you, and only you?"

Trudeau stands there thinking, and thinking, and finally says, “Honestly, my mind is a total blank, I have absolutely no idea what to do, I don’t have a clue.”

Cashier: “Will that be large or small bills, Mr. Trudeau?”

For Justin, the benefits of the Chinese $$$ donations to the Trudeau Foundations are more persuasive than the risk of appearing as a double-standards hypocrite.

All the top donors to the Trudeau foundation are money laundering corrupt “businessman” from China….check it out

Sure he’ll address it – then sell them Alberta and BC to offset their carbon credits

We should all call on Justin to go spend a day or two outside in Beijing and breathe the fresh air, he can let his kids play outside there as well.

Of course not, he admires China.

@ Iian Foulds, “Anything Trudeau does is irrelevant."

“Anything Trudeau does is irrelevant.” How many coal fired power plants China? Can we spell ‘hypocrites’?

‘Over all, 1,600 coal plants are planned or under construction in 62 countries, according to Urgewald’s tally, which uses data from the Global Coal Plant Tracker portal. The new plants would expand the world’s coal-fired power capacity by 43 percent.’ All built by Chinese companies.

As an aside, a strong relationship with China means they will get a free pass on a lot of things.
Free trade with China is going to mean imported labour. Just what Canada does NOT need.
“China’s ambassador to Canada, Lu Shaye, told the Globe and Mail that Beijing is seeking full access to Canada’s economy ahead of free trade talks, a move that could result in Chinese state-owned companies bringing their own employees to work on projects in Canada.”

Then there is this, “So, instead of deepening our ties with allied democratic nations, the Trudeau government is giving our taxpayer dollars to a bank controlled by a potential geopolitical adversary.” To the tune of 480 million tax payer dollars.

I would and do daily call Justin many things, but I would never call him irrelevant.

James Scott,
didn’t China already make a deal with Alaska for LNG?
This stupid country can’t even get a pipeline build let alone be a reliable supplier.

But..But..mmm..huh, their dictatorship is so wonderful. They can turn their economy around on a dime.
They are mmm, huh, ahm the best and I admire them so much. The only one I umm, ahm, I mean, the only ones I ahm admire more than China is Islam and all the wonderful Muslims with the sisters up in the balcony. I love the face coverings on the women and probably some men.
Address China’s bogus crackdown on pollution? Are you completely insane to even suggest that China would be bogus in anything, I ahh, umm I mean I’m shocked to even hear such nonsense, All you Christians are the same, you’re mean.

… He is nothing but a bit of dirt on the shoes of those on the world’s stage.

Question is.
Can carbon dioxide be gender neutral ? Cause if it isn’t, Trudeau won’t have much to argue.
Maybe there is something the Canadians unwittingly had done in the past which requires an emotionally fabricated apology.
Then there is the topic of the China dictatorship which Trudeau feels has so many benefits. He could talk about them not having enough women in government, I suppose.
Maybe he could clear the way for Canada to ship LNG rather than China using coal but that wouldn’t sit well with Barbie. Because it really isn’t about the global environment. It’s about leaving it in the ground.
At the very least he should return with a big bag of potatoes,

Trudeau may eventually get a haircut . . . the Islamic barber may go too far and cut his hair off at the neck.
By the way, why does our brave and intrepid leader not visit such places as Afghanistan, Iraq, Algeria or any of the middle eastern Arab nations?
Could it be his yellow streak would show him to be the coward that he is?
He has a lot of guts, along with the rest of the liberal party, when it comes time to send our young warriors to “keep” the peace in countries where war and violence are the rigueur.
You won’t find any of our incredibly brave politicians standing beside our warriors except for photo ops at cenotaphs on November 11th.
