“The reason we needed to spend so much to rescue the incomes of Canadians and their businesses is because the Liberals ignored military intelligence and let thousands of people come here from China after we knew there was a pandemic there, including 2,000 people from the most infected region of China,” points out Poilievre. The CBC revealed in April that the Trudeau government had received military intelligence in early January showing that there was a viral outbreak in China that was a real risk to Canada. Clearly, that intelligence was ignored. Poilievre can be seen in a YouTube video, that has been viewed 1.8 million times, questioning Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland on whether she and the Liberal cabinet saw that military intelligence and she repeatedly refused to answer.
