Dr. Xiangguo Qiu, Keding Cheng, and some students from China were kicked out of the lab.
In what is a very disturbing revelation, it has been revealed that Dr. Xiangguo Qiu, her husband Keding Cheng, and some students from China, were removed from Canada’s Level 4 virology lab in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
The lab is Canada’s only level 4 virology lab, where the most deadly diseases are held and analyzed. Among the diseases held at the lab is the deadly Ebola virus.
According to CBC, “Security access for the couple and the Chinese students was revoked, according to sources who work at the lab and do not want to be identified because they fear consequences for speaking out. Sources say this comes several months after IT specialists for the NML entered Qiu’s office after-hours and replaced her computer. Her regular trips to China also started being denied.”
The RCMP is investigating.
Staff have reportedly been told not to communicate with Qui and the others who were removed.
Qui has connections with the university in Tianjin, China. She is also an adjunct professor at the University of Manitoba.
According to the report, the RCMP says there is no threat to the public:
“Based on information received to date, the RCMP has assessed that there is no threat to public safety at this time,” Robert Cyrenne said in an email to CBC News on Thursday. PHAC is describing it as a policy breach and “administrative matter” and says the department is taking steps to “resolve it expeditiously,” Eric Morrissette, the health agency’s chief of media relations, said from Ottawa.”
The authorities say nobody has been arrested at this time.
Of course, many will be wondering why Qui’s trips to China were blocked, and just exactly what’s going on here.
National security threat?
According to an expert on the issue, this could be a national security, including the possibility of intellectual property theft – something Communist China is notorious for:
“The National Microbiology Laboratory would have some pretty sensitive biological research material that … could be shared either with or without authorization with foreign countries,” said Gordon Houlden, director of the University of Alberta’s China Institute. “All of this is unproven, but even microbiology, sometimes especially microbiology, can have issues that involve national security.”
The report indicates that the United States is also investigating Chinese researchers within their country, over concerns of intellectual property theft and security concerns.
All of this is happening as Communist China continues to escalate their aggression and mistreatment of our nation, and many will see this as being another way in which China may be attempting to take advantage of and subvert Canada.
