Cowards and disloyal people who would rather serve the CCP than stand up for Canada’s values.
A group of 19 former high-level Canadian officials, including a former Supreme Court Justice, former Liberal & Conservative cabinet ministers, and the former leader of the Federal NDP, have signed a letter calling on Canada to release Meng Wanzhou to facilitate a ‘prisoner swap’ for the two Michaels.
In effect, they want to reward China’s ‘Hostage Diplomacy’ tactics and are pushing the same line as Xi Jinping’s Chinese Communist Party.
“BREAKING: 19 prominent political voices have signed their names to a letter delivered to the Prime Minister just yesterday, asking him to consider ending Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou’s extradition in order to bring Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor home.”

The letter was directed towards Justin Trudeau, with the signatories calling on him to release Meng Wanzhou:
“There is no question that the U.S. extradition request has put Canada in a difficult position. As prime minister, you face a difficult decision. Complying with the U.S. request has greatly antagonized China. Removing the pressures of the extradition proceeding and the related imprisonment of the two Michaels will clear the way for Canada to freely decide and declare its position on all aspects of the Canada-China relationship.”
Among those who signed the letter are former Conservative foreign affairs minister Lawrence Cannon, former Conservative Senator Hugh Segal, former Liberal foreign affairs minister Lloyd Axworthy, former NDP leader Ed Broadbent, and former Supreme Court justice Louise Arbour.
According to the report, these are all the signatories on the letter:
“The letter was signed by Arbour, Axworthy, Cannon, Broadbent, Segal, former ambassador to the U.S. Derek Burney, former associate deputy minister of Finance Wendy Dobson, former ambassador to Japan and Korea Leonard J. Edwards, former permanent representative to the UN and UN Security Council Yves Fortier, former foreign policy adviser Robert Fowler, former UN deputy secretary general Louise Frechette, Executive Director, World Refugee & Migration Council Fen Hampson, former ambassador to Germany and permanent representative to the UN and UN Security Council Paul Heinbecker, former ambassador to the U.S. Michael Kergin, former PMO foreign policy adviser Claude Laverdure, former journalist and broadcaster Don Newman, former president of the International Development Research Centre Maureen O’Neil, former foreign affairs and international development minister Andre Ouellet and former minister of justice and attorney general Allan Rock.”

This is an absolute disgrace.
It’s even worse than a disgrace.
It is the most open and obvious acknowledgement that a significant portion – perhaps a decisive portion – of our political and cultural elite have been co-opted by China and now feel comfortable enough to openly advocate for the Xi Jinping line without any shame whatsoever.
Every loyal and Patriotic Canadian stands against this, and stands against the growing threat of subversion that our nation is facing.
