Canada Should Be Proactive in Uniting With Allies Against Beijing, Says MP
Discussion posted by: TheRage
As many countries around the world reassess their relationship with the Chinese Communist regime, Canada is in a unique position to build alliances with other link-minded democracies in order to push back against bad behaviour with a more unified voice, says Conservative MP Philip Lawrence. Canadians Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor remain jailed in China, and earlier this month a fourth Canadian was given the death penalty on drug charges in that country since Canada detained Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou in 2018—a move that infuriated Beijing. The fate of the CCP’s victims could still be salvaged if Canada has the “political will” to take a stronger stance against the regime and work with allies to push back, says Lawrence, who is a member of the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights.
