Why Are An NDP & Green MP Attending A Panel Pushing For Meng Wanzhou To Be Freed Instead Of Fighting For Michael Kovrig & Michael Spavor’s Freedom?

When Canada is faced with threats from a ruthless Communist State, we can unfortunately always expect a few politicians to side with the Communists rather than with Canada.

Last week, we saw MPs from all parties come together to support a motion by Conservative MP Michael Chong calling on the federal government to finally make a decision on Huawei and come up with a strategy to protect Canadians from China’s escalating intimidation efforts on Canadian soil.

The motion was supported by the Conservatives, Bloc, most NDP & Green MPs, and even by five Liberals who bucked their party and did the right thing.

Unfortunately, we now see two MPs, one from the NDP and one from the Greens, who are going in the opposite direction.

There is an upcoming Zoom event, called “Free Meng Wanzhou,” and it is pushing the same messaging on the case that Communist China is pushing:

“In anticipation of the second anniversary of her arrest, join our online panel discussion to Free Meng Wanzhou, unjustly incarcerated by the Trudeau government at the request of the Trump Administration. You’ll learn more from Canadian experts about her legal case, deteriorating relations with China, and the rise of Sinophobia in Canada – plus what you can do about it.”

Here is the list of participants:

  • John Philpot, lawyer and expert in international criminal law
  • Atif Kubursi, Professor Emeritus of Economics, McMaster University
  • Niki Ashton, NDP MP for Churchill–Keewatinook Aski
  • Paul Manly, Green Party MP for Nanaimo–Ladysmith
  • Cathy Walker, retired trade union representative who participated in 15 trade union exchanges with China over 40 years
  • KJ Noh, veteran journalist, political analyst, educator, and peace activist specializing in the geopolitics of the Asia-Pacific

The two MPs are Niki Ashton and Paul Manly.

Unfortunately, history has shown this isn’t an outlier.

There were some Canadian politicians who seemed completely unwilling to pick a side between the United States and the Soviet Union, even though the values of the Soviet Union were completely contrary to Canada’s.

Ashton and Manly should be holding events calling for the freedom of Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor, and should be pushing back against China’s holding 1 million Uighur Muslims in concentration camps and their destruction of Hong Kong’s democracy.

The fact that they are instead pushing China’s propaganda line is a disgrace. If you think they should do the right thing and drop out of this event, I urge you to contact them and respectfully express your disagreement with their move:

Contact Niki Ashton

Contact Paul Manly

How embarrassing it is to be Canadian with these people being so anti Canadian, why don’t they go live in China if they want their social justice. The CCP already has camps built for retraining, they will be welcome there.
But if Harris/China Joe and the CCP’s UN take over the “rule” of the USA then we can let Meng Wanzhou off any way the CCP has won the Michael’s have unfortunately lost.

Not hard to figure out . . .
NDP Communists and Green Party Marxists are fellow travellers of the CCP . . . naturally they want to promote China just like our Crime Minister.

As Communist China takes bigger & bigger bites out of this country . . . these are the folks vying for consideration in the New Order !

MORE SUCKERS FOR CHINA WITH NO GUTS

There are a lot of MP’s in Canadian government who are there just for money power and nothig else.Their patriotisam make me sick.They show very little respect for those who have shed their life for us Canadians to have freedom.Meng Wanzhou is no saint.
She is enjoying her beautiful life in Canada while our people are rotting in Chinese jail.

Sinophobia?? As if we really needed another word for shutting down criticism! I suggest a replacement word that would truly reflect the feelings of Canadians of any skin colour – Commuphobia – it’s a thing.

They are probably doing it because the CCP TOLD, or hinted, they do it! I would really, honestly like to know the names of ALL political animal’s in this country, both provincial & FEDERAL ministers & PM’s with ANY form, manner, or connection to or with China & or the Communist Party !!!

Not only are the NDP and Greens Irrelevant, but they are Basically Stupid and Corrupt also. This is just another example of their Irrelevance, Corruption and Stupidity! They MUST be Voted OUT ASAP!
