Recent moves by federal government to align more with our allies instead of China are long-overdue Scheer notes.
Conservative leader Andrew Scheer ripped the Trudeau Liberals for their weakness towards China, slamming their ‘policy of appeasement’ towards the ruthless Communist State.
“Don’t be fooled by Mr. Trudeau’s phony statements about China right now,” said Scheer. “We have been raising the alarm about this government’s failure to stand up for Canada and its policy of appeasement to the regime in the People’s Republic of China.”
Scheer has repeated past Conservative calls for the government to stop funding the Asian Infrastructure Bank, an institution which is controlled by China. He also pushed for the government to investigate Chinese exports to show that “there are consequences” for China’s detention of two Michael Kovrig & Michael Spavor.
Additionally, Scheer praised Taiwan and ripped the WHO for excluding them:
“Taiwan has one of the strongest success rates in fighting COVID-19. For the WHO to shun evidence-based decision-making and exclude them from the World Health Assembly because of Beijing’s pressure is wrong. This puts lives at risk. Canada must add its voice in condemnation.”

In recent days, the Liberals have shifted their stance towards China from complete supplication to a polite bow, with the minuscule strengthening following a survey which showed Canadians massively turning against China.
Scheer noted that this seems more about polls than principles for the Liberals:
“It’s only now after they see some polling data that they’ve started to change their message on that. It’s only in the last couple of weeks that he’s changed his message at all and I believe it’s completely disingenuous.”
As Canadians have seen, the more the Liberals show weakness towards China, the worse Canadians are treated by the CCP, and the more our nation looks unreliable to our allies.
