Former Liberal Deputy PM Wants ‘Prisoner Exchange’ With Communist China

Another horrible idea from a member of Canada’s political & business elite.

John Manley, a former Liberal deputy PM, is calling for Canada to undertake a prisoner exchange with Communist China.

As reported by the Globe & Mail, Manley wants Canada to give up Meng Wanzhou in order to secure the release of Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor.

Manley says the precedent for such an exchange would be the prisoner swaps during the cold war.

Interestingly, as noted in the report, Manley (who is the CEO of the Business Council of Canada) is also a corporate director at Telus. Telus just so happens to use Huawei equipment in sections of their network.

Surely, that’s just a coincidence…

Amazingly, Manley even said that if Canada releases Wanzhou, we may ‘have to wait’ for China to release Kovrig and Spavor.

Absolutely pathetic.

Manley’s idea is horrendous, and represents the seemingly inherent weakness and submissiveness of Canada’s political and corporate elites.

First of all, Canada has an extradition treaty with the US, so Manley is advocating for Canada to pick China over our democratic US ally (and by far our largest trading partner).

Second, doing a prisoner swap would legitimize China’s tactic of kidnapping Canadians in response to Canada fulfilling our extradition treaty with the US. China would then realize that they could simply kidnap more Canadians whenever they have a dispute with us, leading to more and more Canadians being kidnapped as leverage for China.

In short, Manley’s idea is dangerous and disgusting. The fact that his kind of thinking is so prevalent in the political and corporate class goes to show why Canada has become such a weak nation.

It is HIGH TIME Already for Parliament to begin on December 5th with a NO CONFIDENCE Vote from the Conservatives, Bloc, NDP, Greens and Independent begin. Voting for the Liberals was a HUGE MISTAKE and they have to be taken DOWN ASAP!!


I knew it would be bad if the liberals got back in.
The stupidity is of out of control.
I was watching a Jill Colton video, and her interview with Ricardo Duchesne. They were talking about how we are being eaten alive. (My words) China knows that This country is ripe for the picking.
How do we change this ASSP?


Another example of systemic corruption in the Liberal Party!


Traitorous dim wits running and selling our country out, should have to go live in China, maybe they should try out these Chinese prisons and then think about what independent democracy means and a sovereign country with law and order and jobs and no debt would mean, or could mean without their corruption and greed.
