In mid-July, I wrote about a story first reported by John Ivison of Postmedia.
People were shocked to learn that the Trudeau government gave a massive contract for security in all of Canada’s embassies around the world to a company controlled by the Chinese Communist Party:
Here’s part of what I wrote and quoted at the time:
“As reported by the National Post, The Trudeau Liberal government has awarded a Chinese Communist Government controlled company with a contract to supply security equipment for 170 Canadian embassies:
“The government of Canada has awarded an estimated $6.8 million contract to a state-owned Chinese company to supply security equipment for 170 embassies, consulates and high commissions around the globe.
The contract for conveyor-style X-ray machines was awarded to Beijing-based Nuctech Company, a company owned by the Chinese government and founded by the son of former General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party, Hu Jintao.”
The article notes that Nuctech is known as the “Huawei of airport security”.
How could that go wrong?
So, not only are we putting our own security at serious risk – as the contract includes “significant pieces of Chinese technology sitting in every embassy,” including software – but we are also enriching a ruthless Communist State that is committing genocide within their own country, and holding Canadians hostage.”
The government issued the contract, claiming that they did so because the Chinese company had the lowest bid, and the government ‘had’ to go with that bid.
Yet, that excuse has been demolished.
It turns out, the Trudeau Liberal Government had a LOWER BID from A CANADIAN company based in Calgary, yet chose the Chinese Communist Party-controlled company instead.
Here’s what Ivison reported:
“Two weeks ago, as reported here first, the government of Canada made a standing offer to the self-same Nuctech to install X-ray scanners in all of its embassies and high commissions around the world — even though at least two Canadian companies had bid on the contract.
At the time, I reported that Nuctech had won because it made the lowest bid: $6.8 million. Yet it turns out even that fig leaf of a defence has been blown away.
Kham Lin of Calgary-based KPrime Technologies said his company offered to supply the scanners for $5.4 million. He said that even if the Nuctech bid included shipping and installation, KPrime would still have been able to offer a more competitive price.”
This is absolute disloyalty by the Trudeau Liberal government.
It is a disgrace.
It is absurd.
How the hell can the government justify giving a SECURITY contract to a Chinese Communist controlled company, for a HIGHER COST, while rejecting a Canadian company offering the service for a lower price?
Instead of creating jobs here in Canada, the Liberal government will create jobs in China.
And this is all happening while all of our top allies are pushing back against China, as China is threatening Canada and free nations, and is holding two Canadians hostage.
Canadians are more united than ever before in wanting to decouple our nation from China, with 90% of Canadians holding a negative view of China’s Communist Authoritarian State.
Yet, the Liberals are ignoring all of that – in an immense betrayal of the will of the Canadian People – has decided to give a contract to China at the expense of a loyal, Patriotic Canadian company that would keep our embassy workers safety and security in Canadian hands.
This must be stopped!
