Years of Trudeau’s submissiveness towards China and attempts to push Canada closer to China’s orbit have resulted in nothing but contempt.
It’s the moment everyone is talking about.
Justin Trudeau at the G20, being confronted by China’s dictator Xi Jinping:
“Body language in side conversation between Canadian PM Trudeau and Chinese leader Xi Jinping speaks volumes about Xi’s current dismissive view of Canada: a country to be lectured and threatened”

According to translations, this is what was said:
“Everything we discuss has been leaked to the paper; that’s not appropriate,” Xi told Trudeau through an interpreter who was with Xi when the pair met at an event during the G20 summit.
“That’s not how, the way the conversation was conducted. If there is sincerity on your part –” Xi continued, as relayed by the interpreter, at which point Trudeau interrupted.
Before the interpreter had started sharing that part of the remarks, however, Xi had gone on to say something in Mandarin that ended up not being translated into English for Trudeau to hear.
“We should have conservations in a respectful way,” Xi said in Mandarin.
“Otherwise, the results can’t be predicted.”
When Trudeau cut in, which was before that part of Xi’s message was translated, he said: “We believe in free and open and frank dialogue and that is what we will continue to have. We will continue to look to work constructively together, but there will be things we will disagree on.”
Through the interpreter, Xi responded: “Let’s create the conditions first.”
As the clip was shared, people offered varying interpretations:
“Arguably one of the most powerful men on the planet just schooled Trudeau. Trudeau probably offered platitudes and nothing of substance. Watch Justin walk away with his tail between his legs.”
“Xi says 否則這個結果不好說了 which was not translated. It is a menacing threat to Trudeau: “otherwise it is hard to say what will happen””

“The Cdn Pool cam captured a tough talk between Chinese President Xi & PM Trudeau at the G20 today. In it, Xi express his displeasure that everything discussed yesterday “has been leaked to the paper(s), that’s not appropriate… & that’s not the way the conversation was conducted””

Trudeau later seemed to hedge on whether he had actually brought up election interference specifically:
“Trudeau asked by reporter if he raised election interference allegations with Chinese dictator Xi Jinping.
Trudeau says “the experts” overseeing elections in Canada had confidence in the integrity of the vote.”

Weakness breeds contempt
Now, nobody in Canada should be siding with Xi Jinping here. As bad as Trudeau is, and he is awful, Canada is still more free than China.
The problem is that Trudeau has tried to move Canada more and more in the direction of a country like China.
In his first few years in power, Trudeau pushed for an extradition deal with China, a free trade deal with China, and let China buy up Canadian companies linked to national security.
Only after the kidnapping of the Two Michaels and China’s dishonesty surround COVID-19 which emerged from the Communist State, has the Liberal government slightly toughened-up their tone.
Yet, it’s no surprise that Trudeau’s submissiveness towards China has been met with contempt.
Trudeau has value to China only as a tool that can be manipulated to make Canada compliant.
Canada’s military has weakened, we can’t even defend all of our territory (basically no presence in the north), we haven’t unleashed our energy sector to help our allies, and we are mired in guilt about the past. Trudeau even calls Canada a genocidal state yet won’t say the same about China.
To China – and most other countries – this looks like weakness, because it is weakness.
So, Trudeau isn’t taken seriously, and thus Canada isn’t taken seriously.
