Andrew Scheer Releases Strong Statement In Support Of Hong Kong

A big contrast from Trudeau’s weak statement issued earlier.

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer has issued a strong statement in support of Hong Kong and the fight for freedom against Communist China.

Here’s what Scheer said on Twitter:

“As Beijing amasses troops at the Hong Kong border, now is the time for everyone committed to democracy, freedom, human rights, and the rule of law to stand with the people of Hong Kong, including the 300,000 ex-pat Canadians. Now, and in the coming days, we are all Hong Kongers:”

By contrast, Trudeau gave a much weaker statement when speaking to reporters:

“We need to see the local authorities listen to the very serious concerns brought forward by Chinese citizens and their concerns around the decisions that the local authorities in Beijing have taken. We continue to be mindful and watchful of protecting Canadian interests and Canadians, specifically in Hong Kong. We certainly call on China to be very careful and very respectful in how it deals with people who have legitimate concerns in Hong Kong.”

The contrast is clear, with Scheer issuing a tough statement in defence of freedom, while Trudeau gives a mealy-mouthed statement that shows he’s clearly still trying to pander to China, even as the Communist State treats our nation like garbage.
