Because of course it does.
The reach of Communist China has been revealed to be even further into our system than previously thought.
According to a Globe & Mail report, the China Investment Corporation, a state-owned investment fund, is one of the largest backers of TT Services.
TT Services, owned by Dubai-based VFS Global, processes Canada’s immigration visa applications in 24 countries.
As a result, it’s possible that China has access to a vast amount of personal information.
The report notes that since 2008, when VFS started processing visas within China, warnings have been issued, in large part due to the fact that the Chinese Communist State can demand any information from any Chinese company at any time, and must be provided with that info.
Former CSIS head Richard Fadden expressed serious concerns, including pointing out that this info could be “useful to the Chinese state,” as they would have a vast amount of date on individuals who want to come to Canada.
Combined with what we are increasingly seeing as China spreads their intimidation practices within our country, they could use this information to gain more and more control over individuals within our borders.
This all requires a strong response from the federal government, since one of the key roles of government is to protect our Citizens from foreign interference and foreign aggression.
Yet, as pointed out by Erin O’Toole on Twitter, the Liberal government has ignored the deadline imposed by the House of Commons to ban Huawei and come up with a plan to protect Canadians from China’s aggression:
Today is the day.
We’ve reached the deadline for the Trudeau Liberals to ban Huawei and present a plan to protect Canadians from Communist China’s intimidation.
So where is it?
All I see are broken promises and inaction. pic.twitter.com/Qrk7NjBeho

The Liberals continue to send a signal to China that their actions will go without a response, which will only invite more interference and more intimidation of Canadians.
