In this instance, Trudeau got it 100% right.
No, I haven’t been hacked.
I am legitimately praising something Justin Trudeau did.
After all, telling it like it is means being honest, and if Trudeau gets something right he – like anyone else – should get credit for it.
In response to a disgusting letter by 19 cowards calling on him to interfere in the Meng Wanzhou extradition case to release Meng and do China’s bidding, Justin Trudeau has explicitly rejected it.
“If countries around the world, including China, realize that by arbitrarily arresting random Canadians they can get what they want out of Canada politically… that makes an awful lot more Canadians who travel around the world vulnerable to that kind of pressure,” said Trudeau”

Trudeau’s response was strong here, as he made a point many people across the political spectrum have made: If Canada surrenders to China, it will only embolden the further hostage taking of Canadians.
Among the signatories to the coward surrender letter was Lawrence Cannon, former foreign affairs minister under the Conservatives. This goes to show how deep the rot goes, and how deeply China has corrupted a vast swath of the Canadian ‘elite.’ We now face the stunning situation in which Trudeau is tougher on China (though not tough at all on them), than a former Conservative cabinet minister.
This is a rare instance of Trudeau getting it right, and could be a sign that more and more people are waking up to how big of a threat China truly is to Canada and our allies.
Time will tell whether this is a one-off, or the start of a more coherent and tough approach towards the ruthless Communist State.
