Bowman has faced a massive backlash after meeting with the same Chinese Ambassador who previously threatened Canada.
As I reported earlier, Winnipeg Mayor Brian Bowman held a fawning meeting with Cong Peiwu, China’s Ambassador to Canada:
“In a weak and pathetic move, Bowman held a fawning meeting with Peiwu, helping legitimize the Ambassador’s threats by not even reacting to them, and once again showing the pathetic weakness and submissive attitude of Canada’s political elites.”
Whose going to tell him they have two of our people in torture like conditions? https://t.co/AkXyVzJrNI

Note how Bowman says nothing in his Tweet about detained Canadian Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor, and refuses to push back on the threats of the ambassador:
“Pleased to visit with Chinese Ambassador to Canada, Cong Peiwu. Thank you for a productive discussion about our Sister City Chengdu, trade, and Winnipeg’s goal of becoming a leader in the protection and promotion of human rights.”
In a move that showed a much-needed sense of Canadian Values and toughness, Conservative MP James Bezan slammed Bowman, pointing out Bowman’s messed-up priorities:
“Too bad @Mayor_Bowman was played. The only discussions with Chinese officials should be about the release of Michael Kovrig & Michael Spavor, removing Chinese sanctions on our agriculture products, & respecting human rights in China. Until then, everything else is off the table.”

Bowman also received a massive backlash from tons of angry Canadians on Twitter, as I wrote about in The Post Millennial.
Bezan and the many Canadians slamming Bowman are 100% right. Bowman disgraced himself and Winnipeg with his pathetic pandering, and he should be ashamed of himself.
