Canada, United States, United Kingdom, & European Union Criticize Communist China For Detention Of Canadian Citizens

More and more people seem to be waking up to the threat posed by Communist China.

The kidnapping of Canadian citizens by the Communist Chinese State has drawn a rebuke from the Western World.

Canada, the US, the UK, and the EU all issued statements criticizing China’s vile actions. Here’s what is being said:

Canada:

“We are deeply concerned by the arbitrary detention by Chinese authorities of two Canadians earlier this month and call for their immediate release. I wish to express Canada’s appreciation to those who have spoken recently in support of the rule of law as fundamental to free societies. We share with our partners the conviction that the rule of law is not a choice: it is the bedrock of democracy. Canada will not compromise nor politicize the rule of law and due process.”

United States:

“We also express our deep concern for the Chinese Government’s detention of two Canadians earlier this month and call for their immediate release.”

United Kingdom:

“The U.K. has confidence Canada is conducting a fair and transparent legal proceeding with respect to [Meng], respecting the international legal commitments in its extradition treaty with the United States. The U.K. and Canada share a commitment to the rule of law, which is fundamental to all free societies. I am deeply concerned by suggestions of a political motivation for the detention of two Canadian citizens by the Chinese government. I call for them to be treated in a fair, unbiased and transparent manner.”

European Union:

“The declared motive for the arrest and detention of Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor, both Canadian nationals, raises concerns about legitimate research and business practices in China. The denial of access to a lawyer under their status of detention is contrary to the right of defence. The EU has concerns about the implementation of the NGO law and its impact on our people-to-people relations and the operations of international NGOs operating in China.”

While the Trudeau government has said that the arrest of Alberta teacher Sarah McIver is not related to the detention of Kovrig and Spavor, it’s hard to believe that it’s just a coincidence.

In terms of China, the Trudeau government has been among the weakest – if not the weakest – in terms of Western governments actually seeing what Communist China really is – a brutal authoritarian state that is an enemy of the Western world and cannot be trusted.

But with the kidnapping of innocent Canadian Citizens, even the most ignorant and disloyal politicians are having a tough time pretending that China isn’t a serious threat.
