Opposition Wants Investigation Into Liberal Attempt To Stop Ex-Diplomats From Speaking About China

“We believe it is incumbent on the Committee to study these matters and ensure that Canada’s non-partisan, public service is not being unduly exploited for political purposes,” say Conservative & NDP MPs in letter.

A group of Conservative & NDP MPs are seeking an investigation into reports on attempts by the Trudeau Liberals to muzzle former diplomats when it comes to China policy.

In a letter to the clerk of the foreign affairs committee, the four MPs said “We believe it is incumbent on the Committee to study these matters and ensure that Canada’s non-partisan, public service is not being unduly exploited for political purposes.”

It’s good to see the Conservatives & NDP working together on this, because opposing the authoritarian turn of the Trudeau government is something all Canadians should be able to agree on.

What part of the word free doesn’t Trudeau understand?. Either we have a charter of rights and freedoms that guarantees our right to freedom of speech or we have a charter that isn’t worth the paper it is written upon. Trudeau, by attacking everyone and all organisations who opposes him, is hoping to confuse the public while he destroys the very freedoms we now see as sacrosanct… Read more »
