Canadian University Ends Relationship With Chinese Researcher Who Was Booted From Virology Lab, As Disturbing Possible Foreign Espionage Concerns Swirl

Dr. Xiangguo Qiu had been an adjunct professor at the University of Manitoba.

I recently wrote about how Chinese researcher Dr. Xiangguo Qui, her husband, and some students from China were booted from Canada’s only Level 4 Virology 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.”

Qui had also served as an adjunct professor at the University of Manitoba.

Not anymore.

According to CBC, The UofM has cut their ties with her.

In an email, UofM spokesman John Danakas said he position with the University “has ended and all students she supervised have been reassigned, pending the RCMP investigation.”

Some have raised the specter of possible foreign industrial espionage and possible attempts to steal secret Canadian information and give it to the Chinese Communist State. At this time, there is no word on whether or not that is the case.

Those concerns are swirling however, something which was even addressed by the head of NATO – Jens Stoltenberg:

“Jens Stoltenberg, who toured CFB Petawawa on Monday and met with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, said at a news conference he couldn’t comment on this specific case, but appeared to suggest the possibility of espionage. “What I can say in general is that we have seen increased efforts by the nations to spy on NATO allies in different ways,” he said.”

Others have discussed similar concerns, as noted by expert Gordon Houlden – the head of the University of Alberta’s China Institute – said, “The National Microbiology Laboratory would have some pretty sensitive biological research material that … could be shared either with or without authorization with foreign countries. All of this is unproven, but even microbiology, sometimes especially microbiology, can have issues that involve national security.”

We need to stay on this story, to ensure that the government can’t sweep it under the rug. With China continually escalating their aggression against us, it seems possible threats are emerging everywhere.

Another great win for baby mayochup… Did I see RCMP investigating!? Wow. Amazing times indeed. Hey RCMP did you hear of SNC? Priorities eh baby mayochup?


As always now in Canada you really will be “lucky” to know what the whole truth is. political control of what is told, makes us ignorant.


Possible but likely espionage by a Communist Dictatorship that Trudeau admires and wants to emulate while at the same time insulting them. Canada has no choice but to assume the Chinese people mentioned have conducted espionage and they must be investigated accordingly.

Trudeau is simply incapable of dealing with matters like this. Cowardly? Weak?


Correct me if I’m wrong , but didn’t a prominent egg head liberal professor just publicly say last week that university educated liberals are much smarter and wiser than non liberal university non grads . Hmmm

It doesnt help that an earlier Liberal Government decided to put the containment lab in a residential area. Where a Bio hazard leak would be the worst in Canadian history. wiser nations than Canada place such labs in remote areas for reasons of security and public safety…but that’s what wiser nations do.

Ebola, like many such deadly diseases, have been weaponized by the Americans and the British. The last thing the “Five Eyes and a Crooked Nose” want is a cure out there in the wild. I wouldn’t be at all surprised to learn these diseases were being spread by the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation with their vaccination programs in the third world.
