“What have we learned since the Second World War?”
It seems that more and more people are finding themselves unable to stomach the supine position of the Liberal government towards China.
On CTV PowerPlay, Liberal MP Adam van Koeverden said that China was committing genocide against the Uighurs.
Then, he said that Canada shouldn’t boycott the China Olympics in 2022.
Clearly, that stunned Solomon, and for good reason. If genocide isn’t a reason to boycott the Olympics, what is?
Here’s what Solomon said later on The Evan Solomon Show:
“LISTEN: Liberal MP Adam van Koeverden told @CTV_PowerPlay that China is committing genocide against the Uighurs.
But he also says the government shouldn’t make the decision to boycott the Beijing Olympics.
@EvanLSolomon responds to his comments. #cdnpoli”

The Liberals are increasingly being exposed for their approach towards China, which has managed to be both weak and completely without results.
Somehow, the Liberal government has simultaneously shown tremendous weakness towards China and seemed to discount Canada’s values, while also watching relations between Canada and China reach a low-point.
Canada needs a far stronger approach, and that starts by boycotting the Olympics and sending a clear message that we won’t be part of a spectacle designed to distract the world from the actions of the Chinese Communist Party.
And, in total fairness, the Conservatives – who also say there is a genocide going on in China – have not definitively called for an Olympics boycott either.
Unless Canada starts showing some backbone, we will be seen as easy pushovers.
