Liberal government's inaction to prevent deaths at nursing homes


The COVID Map of the John Hopkins Resource Center reports two statistics on October 21, 2020 that should be contrasted. The death toll from COVID-19 for China is 4739 and for Canada is 9478. Officially, at least, the death toll for Canada is more than twice that of China. Granted, the number for China is highly suspect as it seems that China has underestimated mortality numbers. However, even if the Chinese number were equal to the Canadian number it is hard to understand why 9478 Canadians have died out of a population of 36,000,000 while the Chinese population exceeds 1.3 billion.

The Chinese government has clearly done what was necessary to curtail the spread even after an initial period of denial, but it seems the Liberal government has not done enough to limit its transmission. Generally speaking, the Liberal government has been too slow and ineffective in preparing for COVID-19 in Canada as it emerged in China at the beginning of January 2020. They actually sent tons of PPE to China thus depleting Canadian supplies. Did they not contemplate that an airborne disease would not spread to Canada vis-a-vis passenger flights and the flight of anxious Chinese? They also didn't realize that the most vulnerable sector of the population to the virus were seniors with pre-existing conditions--particularly in nursing homes and long-term care facilities.

One circumstance that illustrates this lack of understanding of structural weaknesses with respect to institutional, senior care was the emphasis by the government which began in mid April and continued in virulence until at least the end of July on WE Charity's contract with the government. To put it bluntly, WE Charity and the government concentrated on healthy young people. Teachers would be tasked to recruit and organize students for charitable work. It's like providing a solution to a problem that didn't exist.

The government was aware of and failed to act on the deaths at nursing homes across Canada in March 2020. For example, on March 26th it was reported that there were at least 16 nursing homes in Ontario that had confirmed cases of COVID-19 among residents or staff. It was reported in The Canadian Press on March 28, 2020 that "Eleven long-term care homes in the Vancouver Coastal and Fraser Health regions have confirmed cases of COVID-19 and the [BC] government has said that is where the majority of the 16 deaths have occurred." At Résidence Herron in Quebec when the health authority arrived on March 29th almost all the staff had left.

What were the priorities of the government at the end of the summer? It seems they had none. They prorogued Parliament. It was meant to delay questions about the WE Charity scandal as well as an investigation into dismantling of the early warning virus system which had been in place since the SARS crisis in 2003. The prorogation was also meant to delay concerns the opposition was having regarding unbridled spending which was foreshadowed by the resignation of the Minister of Finance on August 07, 2020 and reinforced by an absence of a Budget after prorogation. Furthermore, it was meant as a stalling technique to continue delays in taking a tougher stance on China. Most critically, during the hiatus, no new intiatives were introduced to deal with the nursing home crisis.

The end of prorogation was the beginning for the government to threaten an election call during a health crisis--especially as it applied to nursing homes-- if the opposition pursued questions on the WE Charity scandal. It is an attempt to distract the public regarding the inevitability of a second wave during the cold season of COVID-19 and recurrent flu as it pertains to nursing homes. It is an attempt to deflect attention from the resurgence of COVID-19 cases in the nursing homes where 80% of the deaths in Canada have occured as reflected generally in the statistics of the John Hopkins Resource Center.

Andrew Scheer

@AndrewScheer

Conservatives are focused on what Canadians need right now and today we passed measures to help. The Liberal government should not have tried to use this crisis to grant themselves unprecedented new powers.




Trudeau's attempt to establish taxation and spending powers without oversight reminds the author of the creation of the Federal Reserve Bank on Dec. 23, 2013 following a banking crisis. One of the main critics of the passage of the Federal Reserve Act was Republican Senator Eihu Root. He said that the "Federal Reserve does not provide elastic currency. It provides an expansive currency, not an elastic one. The temptation to expand the currency might cause the Fed to encourage the very cycles it was supposed to prevent."

This month the Federal Reserve announced unlimited quantitative easing. In effect, it can print as much money as it wants to. This is simply an extension of the method used in the sub-prime mortgage crisis a decade ago. As a result, fiat currency has been so diluted that it literally has no meaning. It is a Ponzi or pyramid scheme. Trudeau wants to spend money which the government  does not have over a short-term period and the Federal Reserve wants to print money it does not have over an "infinite" period  with no oversight. 




Erin O’Toole wants China’s ambassador to Canada to publicly apologize to Canadians, or be kicked out

Tonda MacCharles


Oct. 16, 2020



In a statement Friday, O’Toole took a much harder line than the Liberal government did — at least publicly — to comments made by Cong in a virtual news conference Thursday on the 50th anniversary of Canada-China diplomatic ties. That’s when Cong warned Canada against emboldening Hong Kong “criminals” and against interfering in China’s internal affairs.

O’Toole said if no apology is offered, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau should immediately withdraw Cong’s diplomatic credentials.

“The Chinese ambassador has decided to engage in belligerent rhetoric unbecoming of his office,” said O’Toole. “To be clear, this was a threat to the 300,000 Canadians in Hong Kong. And a barely veiled one at that.”

“It was of the kind of tone and tenor one would expect from someone seeking protection money — not someone who is the official emissary of a member of the United Nations Security Council.”

“A threat to Canadians anywhere, is a threat to Canadians everywhere,” he added.


https://www.thestar.com/politics/federal/2020/10/16/erin-otoole-wants-chinas-ambassador-to-canada-to-publicly-apologize-to-canadians-or-be-kicked-out.html





Basically speaking, China has declared permanent Martial Law in Hong Kong. The threat by the Chinese ambassador is to hold 300,000 Canadians hostage as they have kidnapped Kovrig and Spavor who are held in prison. "To have backbone like O'Toole or to be spineless like the Liberal minority government of one", that is the question?

Prime Minister Trudeau, the Canadian government should unconditionally withdraw the Chinese ambassador's credentials with or without an apology. One would expect in tit-for-tat that Ambassador Barton's credentials may be withdrawn immediately. Whether or not this transpires or something else there is no reason to accept a recommendation for a new Chinese ambassador until a year passes. In addition, the Chinese Embassy in Ottawa should be required to reduce its staff by 50%. With respect to our Canadian embassy in Beijing its staff should be reduced by 50% if Spavor and Kovrig are not allowed out of China. Certainly, under no circumstances should a new, larger embassy be built in Beijing as Ambassador Barton wants.







                             The Prisoners


Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor were detained in December 2018 amid heightening tensions between Canada and China. On June 19, 2020, the Canadians were indicted on espionage charges. Both Prime Minister Trudeau and Ambassador Barton have said that they have done everything they can to secure the release of the prisoners. However, what is needed is a more nuanced and innovative approach.

Mdme Meng Wanzhou successfully petitioned the Supreme Court of British Columbia to allow her to move from a $5 million residence to a $13 million newly renovated residence near the U.S. consul general's residence. Meanwhile, Kovrig and Spavor are held in prison. Instead of thinking about a newly renovated Canadian Embassy in Beijing at this time why doesn't the Canadian government consider an interim solution to the plight of Kovrig and Spavor? Petition Chinese authorities for reciprocity or exchange of privileges which would allow the prisoners to be held at the Canadian Embassy in Beijing under house arrest

Pericles' Funeral Oration - Thucydides' Version


We do not imitate, but are a model to others.


"Our constitution does not copy the laws of neighbouring states; we are rather a pattern to others than imitators ourselves. Its administration favours the many instead of the few; this is why it is called a democracy. If we look to the laws, they afford equal justice to all in their private differences; if no social standing, advancement in public life falls to reputation for capacity, class considerations not being allowed to interfere with merit; nor again does poverty bar the way, if a man is able to serve the state, he is not hindered by the obscurity of his condition. The freedom which we enjoy in our government extends also to our ordinary life. There, far from exercising a jealous surveillance over each other, we do not feel called upon to be angry with our neighbour for doing what he likes, or even to indulge in those injurious looks which cannot fail to be offensive, although they inflict no positive penalty. But all this case in our private relations does not make us lawless as citizens. Against this fear is our chief safeguard, teaching us to obey the magistrates and the laws, particularly such as regard the protection of the injured, whether they are actually on the statute book, or belong to that code which, although unwritten, yet cannot be broken without acknowledged disgrace."

Justin Trudeau


“There is a level of admiration I actually have for China because their basic dictatorship is allowing them to actually turn their economy around on a dime and say we need to go green, we need to start, you know, investing in solar. There is a flexibility that I know Stephen Harper must dream about: having a dictatorship where you can do whatever you wanted, that I find quite interesting.”


Homer's first work was an epic comedic poem called Margites (700 BCE). The central character Margites means something like "Impetuous". He apparently rushed into many undertakings without having the requisite knowledge or understanding, for he was an exceptionally ignorant and naive man. Naturally he got himself into a series of ridiculous situations.

中共承诺支持民营企业,但强调党“领导一切”

The CCP promises to support private enterprises, but emphasizes that the party "leads everything"

储百亮, KEITH BRADSHER

2020年9月18日

Mao Zedong vowed to eliminate China's capitalists. Deng Xiaoping said that this group of people can get rich.

Today, China’s current leader Xi Jinping has sent a message to China’s private enterprises that reflect the driving economic growth and more Communist Party control: We are here to help you, but you must also help and listen to us.

On a broader level, these instructions reflect a long-standing debate within China: in a country where key industrial tools are still controlled by the government, what role private enterprises play. To a large extent, China has become a world economic power by letting entrepreneurs open factories and find markets around the world.

The guidelines say that companies must establish party organizations, which means that the company’s internal Communist Party committee will be more active. Entrepreneurs should accept guidance to ensure their "political, ideological, and emotional identity" with the Chinese Communist Party.

https://cn.nytimes.com/asia-pacific/20200918/china-communist-private-business/




                       To Do the Right or Wrong Thing


There is no longer to be a private enterprise in China because it must serve the Party. It must serve the Party rather than the People. The People and the Party are not the same thing. The Party is above and outside the People. The CCP is not the People's Party. It is the Chinese Communist Party.

In the case of Dawu Group (which is a private company) a trademark was infringed upon regarding a strain of chicken developed by the Group. A similar thing happened to its brand of Five Grain Liquor. The message to the company is either toe the line or we will seize what you have. Of course, it is not outside the realm of possibility that the Party could seize everything--both intangible intellectual property as well as tangible property.

Dawu Group does not need the Party for assistance. Its assets might be estimated to be worth 17 billion Cdn. It has no debt. It funnels its profits into social enterprises such as an hospital, sports stadium and temples etc. The company has created a model city ie. it leads by example through Confucianism and not by edict. Its people are its wealth and it serves the people. The company doesn't need to tell its workers to listen. The workers tell the company what to do through democratic elections. The growth rate of the company has been 30% for the last 15 years with the exception of today's COVID year. To put it another way, the Party needs Dawu Group and other private enterprises more than they need the Party.

Why would private enterprises which have fuelled China's double-digit growth for the last thirty years listen to a government regarding how to do business? The government's State-Owned Enterprises were not the driving engine of China's growth. They managed only 3% growth which equalled the rate to borrow money. They are leveraged to the hilt.

While in appearance the Dawu Group's Private Entrepreneurial Constitutional System and its model city applies to rural China because it cannot be freely expressed otherwise; nevertheless, it can be construed to to be applicable to all of China with regard to the economy, society and constitutional based order. It is nothing less than a social revolution centered on the People, based on Confucianism (and now esoteric Buddhism) and utilizing ethical capitalism. It is a system based on actual practice over the last sixteen years rather than theory.

The system could also offer a blueprint to Canada. Look at how the minority Liberal government has been struggling with various viewpoints over the last month in a possible pre-election Throne Speech rather than a Budget.

1. They have considered a basic income program to all Canadians (to buy votes), but discovered that it can't be afforded without massive debt and hyperinflation. No one at Dawu Group is given anything. They earn it.

2. The government wants to establish a Green Program to counter climate change and create jobs. This sounds too much like the State-Owned Enterprise system in China which is centrally run, but on a much smaller scale for the subsidization of private enterprises and supply management. Pierre Trudeau actually nationalized an oil company to go in the opposite direction regarding environmental protection. At Dawu Group, a high priority was placed on environmentally friendly sustainable tourism.

3. The government wants to make the health of Canadians the priority during the COVID-19 crisis, but the hospital and health care infrastructure has deteriorated for decades with the federal and provincial governments at odds . The Dawu hospital gives free medical care to all workers and their families and has recently extended benefits to residents of the nearby village of Langwuzhuang.

4. The government prorogued Parliament some say to allow the WE Charity scandal to die down. How many governments do you know that have had a scandal regarding a charity of all things where the Prime Minister's family has received payments? The Dawu Group has given assistance to victims of the Sichuan earthquake and volunteered to send 200 medical staff to Wuhan during the COVID-19 crisis. Its modern nineteen story hospital has been built in the last five years to serve the community.

In short, the top-down government model in Canada resembles that of socialism with Chinese characteristics. The Canadian government connives and contrives with the CCP which has no legal principle because the Liberal Party has no moral principle. It has chosen to emulate authoritarianism rather than a model of the people, by the people and for the people as represented in the Dawu model. The Liberal Party had a binary choice between authoritarianism and constitutionalism in China and Canada. It chose the former. Because of this egregious error it was forced to fire its Ambassador to China for his comments on the legal process in Canada and was forced to fire its Attorney General because she chose to defend the law. To say that the government was unaware of the choice would be disingenuous because the author presented it to them on numerous occasions and in many forms.








Diane Francis: China's waging a global tech war, but our political leaders seem unaware

It’s embarrassing that Huawei hasn't been banned outright already, given the fact Canada was one of its first casualties


National Post

Diane Francis


Sep 17, 2020


Canada’s failure to take action against Huawei, or work with its allies to counter the Chinese threat, is inexcusable considering that Nortel, the Canadian company that was a pioneer of cellular technologies, was Huawei’s first target. As a Bloomberg investigative piece — headlined, Did a Chinese Hack Kill Canada’s Greatest Tech Company? — documented in July, there is now a large body of evidence that Huawei stole intellectual property from the once-mighty Canadian telecom giant, and drove it out of business.


https://financialpost.com/diane-francis/diane-francis-chinas-waging-a-global-tech-war-but-our-political-leaders-seem-unaware



                     Ab absurdum ad nauseum

Let's give Trudeau the benefit of the doubt. Maybe he didn't learn these things in the school of hard knocks as a bouncer at a bar. Maybe he was getting a sun tan on the Aga Khan's island. Maybe he thought Nortel was the English translation of Huawei. Maybe he confused Japan with China as he did at his meeting with Prime Minister Abe on April 28, 2019.

There is only one word that comes to mind with regard to Justin Trudeau's China Policy. It is "Nausea". It is "Nausea" in an existentialist sense as conveyed by Jean Paul Sartre in the title of his novel by the same name. It is defined as a "sweetish sickness".

Imagine how Huawei "stole intellectual property" from Nortel which led to the bankruptcy of the company. Then, Huawei sells its telecommunications system to Canadian companies. This potentially threatens the security of these systems through back-door programs. The billion dollar Huawei infrastructure may be ripped out of Canadian telecoms as the Minority Government is sending out trial balloons before a probable election. The head-nodders of Trudeau have to decide who will pay the bill. Will it be Canadians or Les Canadiens ie. either the taxpayers or customers?

At the same time, Mdme Meng who is COO of Huawei is fighting extradition to the US while Canada terminates a proposed extradition treaty with China in return for "free trade" and ends its extradition treaty with Hong Kong leaving 300,000 ex-pat Canadians under Rule by Law while Kovrig and Spavor are held hostage in mainland China where any Canadian may be arrested for any reason. It's all cognitive dissonance resulting in NAUSEA.





                      Ignorance and Ignoramuses


You, Mr. Trudeau, made a fundamental miscalculation regarding foreign policy. You assumed you couldn't win votes in an election based on foreign policy. That may be true; although, it is not God's truth. However, you failed to consider how you might lose an election based on your foreign policy which metamorphosed into domestic policy. Your China policy could cost you an election. Don't worry. You might run for Presidente de Cuba.

Ordinary Canadians don't understand about the pros and cons of free-trade with China, extradition treaties, the Huawei threat, the reasons behind the arrest of Kovrig and Spavor, the origin of fentanyl and the new security laws in Hong Kong etc. What they viscerally understand though is having to wear a Chinese mask for COVID-19 which originated in Wuhan, China. They understand how there was a cover-up in China which allowed for the virus to spread rapidly. Canadians now know that the agreement between the government and CanSino Bio for the development of a vaccine fell through thus eliminating any hope they might have. Canadians were informed by an intrepid reporter that the early warning system instituted in 2004 for infectious diseases was terminated six months before novel coronavirus emerged. It was the author who reported its dismantlement two weeks before Dr. Qiu was escorted out of the National Microbiology Lab Level 4 Biosecurity. They are reminded every day that the number of Canadians killed from the virus is approaching twice the number who died in China.

Canadians understand that Trump understood the threat of COVID-19 as early as February 7th according to the Woodward revelations. They also understand that your ambassador to Beijing was reporting to the House Committee that some of his staff were informing him (based on minutes of the China-Canada House Committee meeting of February 5th ) that there was a serious problem in Wuhan which potentially could spread world-wide. However, a couple of days later you were on your way to Africa in order to secure a seat on the Security Council for unknown reasons. In other words, Trump knew of the threat and then ignored it. You should have known about the threat, but seemed ignorant of it. Canadians are aware that you delayed dealing with the virus until it came from Europe possibly through a WE Charity event in London to your household.










Joe Oliver: Austerity straw man can't hide Trudeau’s plan for fiscal ruin


Trudeau hell-bent on irreversibly altering Canadian economy and society to achieve his big-government, socialist ideology


Special to Financial Post & Joe Oliver


September 09, 2020


Canadians are middle-of-the-road, commonsensical people who want to address injustice and poverty but above anything else are concerned about the welfare of their families. They are not radical, yet they find themselves governed by a scandal-ridden prime minister who no longer feigns moderation. He is hell-bent on irreversibly altering the Canadian economy and society to achieve his big-government, socialist ideology. The overarching political question is whether he can successfully bribe voters with their own money to buy into his radical vision.


https://financialpost.com/opinion/joe-oliver-austerity-straw-man-cant-hide-trudeaus-plan-for-fiscal-ruin



In 2015, Trudeau ran on the platform of supporting the middle-class. He is now wants to eliminate the middle class. I repeat. It is time to defund the government and downsize it.

Expansion of the money supply and credit is the very definition of inflation. Ignore the contrived definition of inflation as rising prices. Rising prices are an effect of inflation and not a cause. To expand the money supply to the extent Trudeau wishes is inflationary theft from the middle class.

Trudeau wants only two classes in a socialist system which are an upper and lower class (rich and poor) of which he is part of the upper privileged ruling class. He has never really represented the middle-class. He is the patron saint of minorities who have been over represented in his administration. Effectively, he wishes the upper class to be an elitist minority. If you are in the middle-class majority then you will be effectively eliminated if you allow yourselves to be bought off at the polls with your own money!

Unlimited borrowing and spending of the government contravenes The Charter of Rights and Freedoms (1982). Specifically, under Section 7, it deprives individuals of the right to life, liberty and security of the person. It places individuals in a financial straight jacket from which they cannot escape. Furthermore, the restrictions and controls extend to future generations.

The forthcoming plan of a prorogued, minority government enmeshed in a charity scandal to borrow and spend its way to prosperity is a Ponzi Scheme. It is a form of fraud. Trudeau may not expect a constitutional crisis, but now he may have one. Daddy doesn't like it.








                         Redaction and Prorogation


The Official Opposition has justifiably complained about their inability to examine redacted documents concerning WE Charity because Parliament along with its Committees have been prorogued by a rogue PM.

However, the prorogation has potentially an unintended effect which no one to date has referred to. Meng Wanzhou's lawyers have requested--prior to prorogation--that RCMP and Canada Border Services Agency files be unredacted. It seems that may not be possible during prorogation which continues for five weeks. It also seems only a matter of time before one of Mdme Meng's five law firms brings to the court's attention that redaction of files pertaining to WE Charity followed by prorogation is referred to by the Opposition as a cover-up. Therefore, the law firm may ask if the government conducts a cover-up of their misconduct in the Meng case through the redaction of files along with missing files and is it exacerbated by prorogation?



It is a sad day when "We" has become "WE"



1. At the Ethics Committee hearing Trudeau persistently and deliberately used the pronoun "We" which confused the viewer as to whether he was talking about "We" the government or "WE" Charity or for that matter We Canadians.


2. WE Charity belatedly registered as a lobbyist. It begs two questions "Should our Prime Minister and Finance Minister have registered themselves as lobbyists for WE Charity in April 2020? Should Trudeau, today, belatedly by-pass the Ethics Committee and register himself as a lobbyist for WE Charity?




Trump and Trudeau differ only in degree



1. The President admitted he misused funds raised by the Donald J. Trump Foundation to promote his presidential bid and pay off business debts.


2. Critics denounced the WE Charity campaign-style ad for Justin Trudeau amid PM's scandal over charity.


3. Trump's handling of the coronavirus issue and dividing America while undermining constitutional democracy places him alongside Andrew Jackson who was also impeached. Johnson is regarded as one of the worst presidents in part because of his gross incompetence.


4. Justin Trudeau became Prime Minister based on the Trudeau name. However, he may be judged by history as one of Canada's worst prime ministers for his incompetence during the COVID-19 crisis within a Great Recession. His incompetence is on par with Prime Minister Richard Bennett who was also Minister of Finance and Receiver General as well as Foreign Minister during some of the early years of the Great Depression. It was said at the time that he only listened to his Ministers of Finance and Foreign Affairs. Bennett had promised to end unemployment, but his laissez-faire policies had little effect.


5. According to Ivanka Trump her father's hairstyle is "the result of scalp-reduction ¬surgery, and careful styling held in place by strong hairspray". In this case, vanity is an aspect of narcissism. An general example would be that he thinks he knows better than anyone.


6. Trudeau places an inordinate importance on appearance over substance. A simple hair flip as a sign of affectation garners affection from his supporters. In this case, vanity is symptom of Machiavellianism. Someone who is Machiavellian believes it is not unacceptable to use immoral behaviour to reach political goals. Trudeau has now been accused of ethics violations on three occasions. However, Trudeau is not without morals, but as a moral relativist he believes that his morals based on his upbringing are superior to others.


7. Trump has shown an admiration for dictators such as Xi and Putin because he wants absolute power. For example, he co-operated and co-ordinated with Putin to influence the results of the US election and in turn favoured Putin by trying to corrupt a newly elected President of the Ukraine in what amounted to extortion by withholding arms sales approved by Congress.


8. Trudeau has shown an admiration for dictators such as Xi and Castro for what they can do rather than how they do it. In his own words he said "a level of admiration I actually have for China, because their basic dictatorship is allowing them to actually turn their economy around on a dime...". He fundamentally misunderstands Communism and seems to believe it is some kind of benevolent Socialism which is basically what his progressive Liberalism has become.

                        Four Strikes You're Out?


It takes three strikes you're out if one plays by the rules--perhaps four strikes if one doesn't play by the rules.

1. Gerald Butts resigned as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's principal secretary. The resignation "comes amid allegations that senior members of the PMO pressured former justice minister Jody Wilson-Raybould to help Quebec-based multinational engineering firm SNC-Lavalin avoid criminal prosecution on bribery and fraud charges in relation to contracts in Libya."

2. WE Charity could have received as much as $43 million for meeting the commitments it agreed to when it took on the administration of a $900 million student grant program.

3. An eighty-four million dollar contract was given to MCAP which is the employer of the husband of Katie Telford who is the current principal secretary to the Prime Minister.



What do all three unusual and irregular circumstances have in common? The two word answer is Justin Trudeau.

The Bloc has called for the resignation of Trudeau, Telford and also Morneau (who played a role in the WE scandal).

Are three strikes enough though to remove Trudeau? The author wants to know all the details of the government's contract with CanSino BIO for the development and manufacture of a COVID-19 vaccine. When was it signed? Was it undertaken through a competitive process or was it similar to the single source WE deal? Did it in any way, shape or form directly or indirectly involve QIU Xiangguo and her husband CHENG Keding who were escorted by the RCMP out of the Level 4 Biosecurity Lab of the National Microbiology Laboratory? Did any Canadian government official own shares of CanSino Biologics whose recent stock offering on the Shanghai Exchange went up 90% in a single day despite its being unable to send COVID-19 vaccine samples to Canada for analysis due to circumstances beyond its control?

                     Power means responsibility



Y
esterday's headline in the National Post read as follows:

China spat may be threatening Canada's bid to get early access to leading COVID-19 vaccine: experts.


This article refers to the Government of Canada's contract with a Chinese firm which allows Canada to manufacture a vaccine.



Today's headline at CBC News reads as follows:

Experts hope to develop vaccine in 12-18 months to stop spread of coronavirus.


This article refers to the Government of Canada's agreement with Pfizer and Moderna to supply vaccines.



The Government of Canada would like us to believe there is no connection between the two headlines only a day apart. They don't want to explicitly admit today that because Chinese customs has not allowed export of a vaccine candidate over a period of months that the government has chosen to seek new sources of vaccines. Maybe they are still trying to keep the door open for a Chinese vaccine to arrive, they don't want to upset China or they don't want to admit a mistake?

The heart of the author's issue with failure of Chinese customs to approve export of a vaccine candidate may be stated by reminding readers that over a year ago deadly viruses which could potentially be used in biological warfare were removed from the National Microbiology Lab's Level 4 Biosecurity Section in Winnipeg under highly unusual circumstances. Chinese customs did not prevent them from entering China. Yet, Chinese customs now has not given approval for the export of a vaccine candidate for COVID-19 which was part of an agreement between the Government of Canada and a Chinese company.

Yesterday's headline implies "no hope". Today's headline implies "hope". What the author wants to know is who is to be held accountable in the Government of Canada for the agreement with a Chinese company to supply a vaccine candidate which could be manufactured in Canada? Who is responsible in our government for what went on at the National Microbiology Lab? Is there any overlap in who in our government is ultimately responsible for the Chinese contract and the irregularities at the NML? 

Do Canadians have "no hope" that the Minister(s) or individuals take responsibility and ask to be fired or rather do we have hope that the person(s) will resign of their own accord? There may be no "silver bullet" to protect us from a virus that originated from a bat species.

        A Circle Becomes A ONE-WAY STRAIGHT LINE



Wailian makes no reference to McMillan in promotional material and McCallum never mentions the company to the Minister. And the Minister reaches out to McCallum rather than the other way around. It looks like a circle, but is described by McCallum as a one-way "straight" line.

I'm reminded of the testimony of the Kielburgers. They are bathed in angelic white light which reflects in the background like they are surrounded by white auras--maybe halos. Craig Kielburger says he--or should one say WE--wanted to help the government rather than be helped. He says the government phoned him on that fateful day looking for help. Of course, if he had phoned the government for financial help then it would look like lobbying for which WE Charity was not registered.

"Under Canadian law, Mr. McCallum is barred from lobbying the federal government for five years after leaving office. He said his conversation with the minister did not constitute lobbying. Mr. Mendicino “approaches me from time to time for general discussion as a friend and former minister,” Mr. McCallum said in response to questions from The Globe and Mail."

In April, WE made a proposal to create a social entrepreneurship program to the Small Business Minister Mary Ng. If the author recalls correctly Craig Kielburger's said to the effect at his testimony that WE had had trouble for two years trying to integrate an entrepreneurship program [which would normally have been for profit] with a charity program [which was not for profit]. The author wondered if he had heard about the social entrepreneur Sun Dawu who is prominent on the author's website.

Perhaps Kielburger never will learn about Sun Dawu because the author's website is under illegal attack, impediments are piled on daily to prevent publishing, his browsers and VPN modified, his keyboard changed to a French template. Let's not forget that searches by the author for Sun Dawu's blog, his website or any mention of his name on the world-wide web by the author are exclusively restricted through targeting his unique identification address.

The following is but one example of targeting my search capabilities on anything related to Sun Dawu.

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at www.haoz.net.


Ironically, hackers don't target my search for his image on the web. The hackers have though compensated for this omission by forbidding my website to publish any images whatsoever, for example, of Sun Dawu or Justin Trudeau.

However, getting back to the proposal on social entrepreneurship by WE to the Small Business Minister, the Ministry asked WE to revise its proposal to which WE complied. In defence of itself, WE said that "it was incorrect to conflate the testimony about the unsolicited April 9 proposal with its eventual partnership to deliver the CSSG; the earlier pitch, it says, was "distinct and clearly unrelated." In other words, lobbying is not an issue. The author does not contest this defence as the situation was extremely complicated and moving very quickly; as well, he has not seen copies of any proposals.

The author returned from an engagement in time to hear Trudeau's testimony. He was flabbergasted to listen to Trudeau's claim that he only heard of the WE proposal hours before it was made. Rather than recuse himself he made the excuse that he had pushed back at the proposal because it might be perceived he and his wife might have a conflict of interest. The operative phrase here is "might be perceived". He admitted no conflict, but only admitted it might appear to be that way by others--to paraphrase him. To the author this is but a reflection of his relativistic philosophy which means in effect that conflict of interest rules don't apply to him. By the way, his "pushing back" rather than being "pulled in" by the WE proposal didn't seem to mean any more due diligence of WE by either the public service or the cabinet.

For the author, the most intriguing part of the testimony were Trudeau's last words. "In fact, as of May 8, it was my belief that a supercharged version of the Canada Service Corps would deliver the program. From my perspective, WE Charity hadn't come up," Trudeau said. That word "supercharged" is usually applied to cars where a supercharger is added to deliver more oxygen to the engine. Since he doesn't explain the word "supercharged" it has many possibilities. However, in terms of probabilities it may refer to WE.

In effect, he wanted to supercharge the Canada Service Corps which he instituted in 2018 with the supercharger WE. In the May 8th WE proposal the terms "core program" and "cohort" are used many times. This seems to suggest a semantic relation to the word "Corps" in Canada Service Corps. Basically, what the author is suggesting is that Trudeau was not faced with a binary choice on May 8th by the public service between WE and nothing, but rather prior to May 8th, he faced the dilemma of how the Canada Service Corps could be partnered with WE. What this means is that a potential conflict of interest may have been perceived earlier.

Our Ship of State is Rudderless and without Moral Compass


Why is Canada part of the joint development of the Greater and Lesser Panda Vaccine (GLP)? It is proposed by China that "a public good of universal access" will cost Latin America only one billion dollars through a loan. Is that every year with a new vaccine? Is it using as its model with regard to low cost, for example, the vaccine campaign of the WHO to eradicate tuberculosis throughout China? It does not seem so. Not only does China seem to want to make a profit from the misfortune of others but wants control of others through loans which countries may have difficulty repaying. It resembles a strategy used by the One Belt One Road Program particularly in Africa where infrastructure projects (sometimes of dubious value) are built in undeveloped countries based on loans which cannot be repaid resulting in the acquisition of other assets and eventual control of the economy and country.

The author can anticipate what the Government might reply once they get their heads out of the morass of a Made in Ottawa, self-inflicted, We Charity scandal. The Governman whose superior, relativistic, moral philosophy which applies to everyone else but him might say it is the Chinese and not the Canadians who proposed a loan to purchase the GLP vaccine. We have no association with the loan because We are interested only in charitable causes like ourselves through entitlement.

We are the ones who selflessly contributed to the WHO (who incidentally are controlled by the Chinese). We know nothing, we see nothing, we hear nothing about the Canadian WHO adviser who appeared to dodge questions about the inclusion of Taiwan in the WHO. We know nothing, we see nothing, we hear nothing about why the same Canadian WHO epidemiologist failed to report to the House of Commons Standing Committee on Health for two separate occasions. We are the epitome of transparency until We are not.

One can't help remembering how our Prime Minister frittered away valuable time starting on February 09, 2020 in Ethiopia and Senegal. This was during the new coronavirus epidemic in Wuhan. He was seeking to get votes for a seat on the Security Council for unknown reasons. One doesn't hear of any talk of the epidemic in his discussion with various African leaders. One doesn't see any preparations he was making in Canada--like cancelling flights into Montréal-Trudeau International Airport from China or Hong Kong.

The author was set to travel to China in the middle of January on an "iron rice bowl" contract. He cancelled his trip because of articles he had read in the Lancet which questioned Chinese statistics on the epidemic. He warned all his Chinese friends of the nature of the epidemic. His former ophthalmologist was Dr. Li Wenliang ( 李文亮) known as "the whistleblower" who achieved hero status. He died on February 07, 2020. To give a short background, the author had been through the SARS crisis of 2003 in Beijing when most staff at our Embassy returned to Canada. He had valuable experience which no one in our Government called upon in the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic of 2020.

Yet, he heard no comments from our own Minister of Foreign Affairs or Prime Minister when they were in Africa, Europe or on their return to Canada warning Canadians not to travel to China for work or for other reasons. He saw a clueless Government which was not preparing Canada or Canadians for the worst. Really, who are the Chinese experts in our government and what do they know about anything? Where are our foreign policy analysts who either seem MIA or whose goal is to serve domestic political purposes?

In addition, the author could easily have travelled back to Canada after a stay of two weeks and who would have stopped him from entering the country or required him to quarantine? Not our Prime Minister. Not our Minister of Foreign Affairs. No one. To highlight the point, who objected to Trudeau's wife going to London on March 4, 2020 to attend a We Charity event after COVID-19 had entered Great Britain in late January? She returned to Canada with the disease forcing the Prime Minister to quarantine--at which point he started to take the crisis more seriously! The consequence was that Parliament was reduced to virtual sittings.

Now, our Prime Minister is embroiled in a third ethics scandal to distract him even more from important issues such as COVID-19. One is beginning to lose count of the violations. While his father was highly regarded for his sense of Justice and creating a Just Society through the Charter of Rights and Freedoms it seems his son, Justin, will be just be forgotten for his apparent lack of moral scruples.












The strangest people visit my hometown for the strangest reasons


I'm sitting at a small restaurant in my small hometown. I'm having a late breakfast with two sunny side up eggs staring me in the face. Everything looks and feels sunny. Then, a metaphorical cloud seems to darken the sky outside.

There's a tall guy standing just outside in a pitch black, dark suit. He looks rather uneasy. Now he's either just come from a funeral or he's a Mafia hit man. Maybe he's a Mafia hit man who has just come from a funeral. He moves in front of the Italian barber shop. Ah, he must be a Sicilian Mafia hit man.

He stands in front of a black car with all the windows blackened out. That's illegal in my province, but do you expect a hit man to have any other kind of car? In stream of consciousness I'm taken back to my childhood. I used to visit my cousins in a small village in the Appalachian region. We used to go cart down a big hill. At the top of the hill was a large mansion. That was the hideout of the Mafia. It wasn't much of a hideout since everybody knew it belonged to the Mafia. At any rate, a long black Cadillac used to go slowly up the hill to the mansion.

Next, a police car pulls behind the the black suburban. The plot thickens. Is he a good cop or bad cop? Is he monitoring the hit man or is he protecting the hit man? Maybe he's a schizophrenic cop who is both good and bad.

Another guy in a black suit enters the restaurant. Gee. Maybe the hit is in the restaurant as in the Godfather. Maybe it's me and I'll be face down in my sunny side up eggs.

As it turns out nothing so sinister is about to happen. The candidate from the big city of TO for the provincial election wants "to shoot" a photo op among the locals. He'll be arriving shortly. We're told that if we want to ask him a question then let them know what it is in advance. Why would I want to tell any candidate in advance what my question is or be part of a dog and pony show? I leave before he arrives.

Another guy arrives in my small town on a cold winter day. At first, he doesn't see me nor I him. I've just come out of a shop and am about to cross the street to the sunny side. That is, I'm about to jay walk. That's not uncommon in a small town--especially when the nearby crosswalk is the most dangerous place to walk or bike. Those who depend on the goodwill of motorists are run over left and right. To use a mixed metaphor--the left (who jaywalks) is right and the right (who uses the crosswalk) is left on the pavement.

My quick diagonal move across the street like a bishop moving on a chessboard brings me directly behind one who strides like a king on the sidewalk. He realizes that he is not alone on the sidewalk and that I am walking in stride with him. He turns his head toward me as he continues to walk.

It resembles Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in his appearance and attire. Now why would Trudeau be walking alone on the street of a small town without his bodyguards? I guess where he is going because not much is not known in a small town. It is to the restaurant up the street and along the canal. A liberal supporter runs that restaurant. Of course, it may not be Trudeau but someone else. However, as is said about ducks "what looks like a quack, sounds like a quack and walks like a quack is a quack".

I can tell by what he says to me that he is afraid because it exhibits a false sense of bravado. It is a hortatory injunction in English. "Be careful not to slip on the ice! Now where he and his shadow are walking there is no ice on the sidewalk. Of course, he is not warning me for my welfare and that I may fall. He is warning me for his welfare as he may fall since a stranger to him is walking behind him. As quickly though as I appeared behind him I disappeared through the door of a nearby business.

His shadow now speaks to him as it did to King Lear. Be careful not to slip in Parliament! Now for all intents and purposes there is no Parliament. It has not been prorogued, but rather the full sitting has been delayed indefinitely. Our democracy is on hold by a Prime Minister who won a minority government. He doesn't want opposition and uses the COVID-19 crisis as an excuse to achieve his authoritarian aims.

His shadow whispers to him not to slip. His father was a constitutional lawyer who as Prime Minister created the Bill of Rights and Freedoms for Canadians. His son is undermining this Bill of Rights and Freedoms by not allowing free speech and debate in the House of Commons through its elected representatives. He shadow boxes with himself and is losing. The shadow whispers to him like the slave standing behind the Roman Emperor in his chariot during the victory parade. "All is vanity". Everything your father built you are destroying. Everything your father built will turn to a handful of dust. Everything your father created will be nothing.

Canada’s troubles with China are only temporary, says former ambassador: ‘Chinese people and Canadian people are good friends'

Nathan VanderKlippe


July 29, 2020


Less than six months after he was fired as ambassador last year, Mr. McCallum became a senior strategic adviser for McMillan LLP, the law firm.

He first made a public appearances for Wailian last October and November, when he came to China to deliver remarks and pose for photographs. Over two weeks, he appeared at Wailian events in Qingdao, Beijing, Suzhou, Shanghai and Shenzhen. In each city, he spoke to a room with dozens – in some cases more than 100 – prospective clients for Wailian. The company paid for his attendance through an agreement with McMillan, according to the person familiar with the events.

Wailian promotional materials identify Mr. McCallum only as former ambassador and immigration minister, with no reference to McMillan.

Mr. McCallum in turn has called on his federal government connections.

Mr. Mendicino spoke with Mr. McCallum in mid-June, Kevin Lemkay, the minister’s spokesman, said in a statement. He “reached out to Mr. McCallum as a former colleague to discuss immigration and refugee issues,” Mr. Lemkay said, adding: “At no time did Mr. McCallum ever mention this company [Wailian] to the minister.”

Under Canadian law, Mr. McCallum is barred from lobbying the federal government for five years after leaving office. He said his conversation with the minister did not constitute lobbying. Mr. Mendicino “approaches me from time to time for general discussion as a friend and former minister,” Mr. McCallum said in response to questions from The Globe and Mail.

Remind us, why does Canada want a seat on the UN Security Council?

Eugene Lang and David Perry

Special to The Globe and Mail


Published May 6, 2018


To date, Canadians have been given no reason why the government is going to such lengths to win a Security Council seat. What is the agenda Canada wants to pursue through membership on the council? The absence of a rationale leaves the impression that for Canada a seat on the Security Council is an end in itself, rather than a means to an end. A more cynical interpretation is that this is motivated by a Canadian conceit and sanctimony that the world – and hence the Security Council – simply needs more Canada as its Moralizer-in-Chief.

There are only 5 useful seats on the Security Council.3 of these can and regularly do stop the UN from doing anything,especially in their spheres of influence. The other 2 have the US position. Their veto would only matter if the US, China and Russia all decided to do something, which rarely happens, and then if the UK or France decided to stop the other 3, which has likely never happened.



https://www.theglobeandmail.com/opinion/article-remind-us-why-does-canada-want-a-seat-on-the-un-security-council/



With the dearth followed by the death of Canada's foreign policy one is left to speculate as to the reasons that Trudeau continues to pursue with energy and enthusiasm a symbolic seat on the UN security council. As the deciding vote, does Canada intend to block a resolution of the United States in support of China and Russia or to support a resolution of China and Russia to oppose the United States?




              


Gerald Butts, then-principal secretary to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, speaks to Trudeau’s chief of staff Katie Telford in July 2018. Butts will appear before the House of Commons justice committee, Telford will not.

It is never really appropriate though to look for anything really deep with respect to motivation in the mind of Justin Trudeau since it simply is not there. The question to ask may not be "why" or "what" but rather "who" or "whom". Whom does Trudeau want to sit on that seat? Who is so close to Trudeau over the years and has helped him win the election in 2015? Whom does he owe?









              


Elona Ibraheem, 7, tries to answer a question as Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau visits with pupils at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Elementary School in London, Ont., on Sept. 16, 2019



John Robson: Here are the questions that would get me kicked off the federal leaders' planes Imagine what the leaders would mumble, if cornered, on the following topics?


The National Post

John Robson

September 17, 2019


“Someone appears to have misinformed Canada’s federal leaders about the purpose of elections,” this newspaper editorialized Saturday with wit and clarity that its targets have no hope of attaining. I fear it is in some sense untrue; you can’t argue with success and politicians’ toxic house blend of vacuous viciousness usually wins power for someone to misuse feebly. But since most candidates lose elections the same way, maybe evading questions is overestimated tactically as well as morally. At any rate I intend to ask some.

[One of those questions reads as follows]

Is China friend, foe or simply a foreign entity pursuing its own national interest?



https://nationalpost.com/opinion/john-robson-heres-the-questions-that-would-get-me-kicked-off-the-leaders-planes



I found the questions John Robson wouldn't be able to ask on the Liberal campaign plane to be thought provoking. If I had a chance though I'd rephrase the question "Is China friend, foe or simply a foreign entity pursuing its own national interest?" First, of all, I wouldn't ask the question "Is China friend or foe?" as the issue is too complex and the respondent might be prone to answer with the concocted word "frenemy" which is absolute balderdash.

Furthermore, I wouldn't ask the second part of the question as an alternative to the first question. Rather, I either would ask it separately or pair it with it another. The paired question would be "Is China pursuing its own national interest with respect to Canada or is China pursuing its own international interest in Canada? What would be your question to ask the Prime Minister on the campaign plane regarding China?

With regard to the picture that heads the opinion one may say it is topical--for the opinion appeared on the September 17 and the picture was taken on the 16th. It shows Trudeau answering questions of young students. One presumes they wouldn't be kicked out of the classroom for impertinent questions. One may also guess that the picture is trying to express the view with respect to the article that the questions of reporters on the plane are somewhat childish or if serious then would be answered childishly or cavalierly.

I would have preferred to have seen a second picture included of the media bus hitting the Liberal campaign plane about a week earlier. It could express Robson's view that his questions might be regarded as impertinent, ignorant or inappropriate according to the Liberals--and even other journalists. His questions may clash with those expected and crash the plane. No doubt I would be asked to leave the plane at 30,000 feet without a parachute.


 
              



Robson's article takes on more importance with Trudeau's statements on September 19th regarding blackface as he is bathed in white light aboard his campaign plane.

Basically, what the author is suggesting is that Trudeau was not faced with a binary choice on May 8th by the public service between WE and nothing, but rather prior to May 8th, he faced the dilemma of how the Canada Service Corps could be partnered with WE. What this means is that a potential conflict of interest may have been perceived earlier.

Memo to Justin: Who you are today is who you were yesterday

Is there any species of dumb that’s dumber than donning a racist or fascist costume under cover of a party? Justin Trudeau, once our “It Boy” Prime Minister, is reeling from revelations that he dressed in brownface for an “Arabian Nights” party in 2001. Some may remember Prince Harry’s equally ill-judged decision to favour a brown shirt and swastika for a swanky birthday party back in 2005.

We are forced to recall, in the Prime Minister’s case, his justification, faced with accusations of unwanted groping, that “someone else might have experienced that differently and this is part of the reflections that we have to go through.” Memo to Justin: Some of us do our ethical reflections before the fact, not after.

                             Falstaff and Prince Hal




Justin Trudeau as Prince Hal

When the author thinks of Justin Trudeau it reminds him of the character Prince Hal in Shakespeare's Henry IV Part I and Henry IV Part II. The character is seen from the perspective of Falstaff. It portrays the young Henry V as a prince under the diminutive form of his name or Hal. He lives a rather wayward and wasted youth.

The reader though is posed with a problem. Is Hal merely acting for effect or is he serious? If he is serious then one might expect to find a serious King Henry V. If he is merely acting for effect then one might expect him to continue to act in the role of King Henry V.

As a youth in high school, it was Justin Trudeau who wore a black face and wig. As an adult and drama teacher at a private school he put on a black face and Aladdin costume. If he were serious as a youth then he would have given up the costumes as an adult and especially when he became Prime Minister at middle age.

However, Trudeau did not give up the costumes nor the brown and black faces when he became an adult. He has said that he likes to dress up in a costume. At middle age when he became Prime Minister he continued to wear costumes. They were mocked by some and others felt they were insulted by Trudeau's use of them. His India trip was a disaster not only personally for his "brand" but a diplomatic failure for Canada and its "brand", too.

Basically, the "Boy Prime Minister" has yet to grow up. He remains the Prince of "Sunny Ways". He is unlike his father who preferred to read The Prince and used Machiavellian tactics during the October Crisis of 1970. It was Pierre Elliott Trudeau who famously used the words "Just Watch Me". In other words, in the relationship of Pierre to Justin or father to son there is a kind of role reversal with Shakespeare's Henry IV and his son Hal whom many see the latter or Hal as being like the Prince portrayed by Machiavelli.

There is though an important difference between Pierre Elliott Trudeau and Justin Trudeau. His father's character developed after the time of the War Measures Act. It was reflected in his design of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. He also became more than a politician as a statesman. The open question is "Will Justin Trudeau mature as man and minister or WYSINWYG ie. what you see is not what you get?"

His actions lead one to believe today that Justin Trudeau wears a mask. It is not a black face, but is something which hides his true self. He is also still fond of costumes and uses that as an excuse. Is his business suit a costume, too, where his socks actually express youthful rebellion? Is the real Justin Trudeau merely acting for effect or is he serious?








               




Dumb-Down Déjà Vu


Dumbed down might be mindlessly reduced to Dumb-Down and then matched with Déjà Vu to become Dumb-Down Déjà Vu. When I write of Dumb-Down Déjà Vu I am not referring to the album called Déjà Vu released by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young in March 1970. While I go back to the album many times because of songs like Woodstock, Teach your Children and Our House I do so because of its brilliance and not because of its banality and brainlessness. Did you notice how the words repeat themselves at the beginning of the song called Déjà Vu? Rather, I am referring to dumb-down déjà vu as the sense of unease I have when I contrast what is taking place in the present and what has taken place before.

My first dumb-down déjà vu experience concerned the Canadian Security Exam offered in Toronto by the Canadian Security Institute. I took the six month course in 1983. It was a required course for every stock broker; although, I took it simply for interest. There was a textbook to read. Another requirement was to complete a ten page essay along with bar graphs which contrasted the operations of the Imperial Oil and Shell integrated operations. The essay was graded by a professional. At the end of six months I travelled from Waterloo to Toronto in order to write the exam at the Farmer's Market in the old distillery area.

There were three parts to the exam. There was the one or two sentence answer, the paragraph answer and finally the longer explanation. All were graded by an examiner. One had to know one's material in order to complete the exam in the alloted time. I remember Morton Shulman who was the millionaire currency expert thinking he could pass the exam without studying. He didn't pass. About 40% of the students didn't pass either.

Twenty-five years later I sat down with someone who had just completed the course. He too had a textbook. He didn't have to travel to Toronto to write the exam as he was sent a form with multiple choice questions. Choose either A, B, C or D. It was graded by a machine. I was rather shocked since even Morton Shulman could have passed that exam had he been given it in 1983. Then I was naive enough to ask "Where is your essay?" The answer was "What essay?" Gee, I'm so stupid to ask.

Now, I am having another déjà vu episode of a dumbed down sort. It's not out of The Matrix where there is a glitch which indicates an error in the program. Rather, it has to do with my re-reading of the novel called Anna Karenina by Tolstoy. I originally read the novel through a course in Russian literature at the U of T. Our instructor was Russian, but the course was taught in English and we used an English translation of the novel. It's a long novel over 800 pages. I read it twice before I wrote a required essay.

When I went to China I didn't waste my spare time in idle pastimes. Rather I re-read all the English classics. It also included all novels by Tolstoy translated into English-including Anna Karenina. I read the same translation differently this time because I was not re-reading other novels at the same time. I devoted myself entirely to that novel before I went on to the next one. This meant that I understood it quite differently and I appreciated it more.

I have begun to read a new translation of the novel by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky. It has won critical acclaim. I am thinking to myself maybe it is a better translation since a man should understand the male point of view and a woman should understand the female point of view. However, I don't understand anything. Am I really reading Anna Karenina? There must be some mistake. This can't be the same novel. Have I forgotten so much about it? Not really. Scenes like the skating rink episode involving Levin and Kitty appear. The thing that makes this translation so different for me is that it is in simple, everyday language of today. It doesn't imitate the Russian of yesterday, but makes it come alive today.

It is probably true that each generation has a different interpretation of the world. This is reflected in translations of the same novel. It also means that those of a different generation reading the novel in the Russian language also experience it in a different way. However, for me, today, this new English translation is very foreign to me. It is like reading Russian which I know nothing about.

The dumb-down déjà vu now becomes "dd dv. DD DV doesn't have to involve taking an educational course. DD DV doesn't have to involve reading a novel. It can involve anything. If you drove an 18 wheeler, 15 gear, double-clutch with air brakes as I have done then you might experience DD DV if you were driven by an autonomous vehicle especially if you were DWI or are DUI. What are your experiences of DD DV, DD DV and DD DV etc?





                         The Past and Present Crises


It is time that one revisits the recognition of the People's Republic of China by Canada in October 1970. The reason is that there is an obvious parallel with recent events . On the Canadian side, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has tried to build on his father's legacy at the time of Mao with respect to Sino-Canadian rapprochement. On becoming Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau set China-Canada free-trade as his goal while considering an extradition treaty. It was illogical to consider either proposition with an authoritarian, Communist regime which was confirmed with the arrests of Spavor and Kovrig in what is termed hostage diplomacy. On the Chinese side, President Xi Jinping has enshrined Xi Jinping Thought in the constitution preferring orderliness to chaotic Mao Tse-tung Thought interpreted in different ways during the Cultural Revolution. While Pierre Trudeau's recognition of China is of importance it must be put into a wider context since it meant the simultaneous severing of diplomatic ties with the Republic of China (ROC) which to China was a renegade province while Canada was confronting its own separatist movement in Quebec at the time with the kidnapping of Cross and Laporte.

To highlight the issue of separation in Canada one needs to look at the June 25, 1968 federal election. Pierre Elliott Trudeau won support by downplaying autonomy for Quebec while guaranteering the rights of French Canadians across Canada. On the day before the election, at the St. John Bapitste Parade which Trudeau reviewed, there were separatist riots, protests and demonstrations. The leaders of the Liberation and Chénier cells of the FLQ met for the first time in a paddy wagon.

At the time, China was in the throes of the Cultural Revolution. Mao's Great Leap Forward had failed so he initiated another revolution seventeen years after The Chinese Communist Revolution (解放战争). Mao unleased the Red Guards to enforce Communist dogma and get rid of the Four Olds (with the exception of the Old at the Center).

In March 1969, Lin Biao (林彪) declared martial law on the excuse of Sino-Soviet border clashes in order to eliminate his potential rivals to the succession. The result was that he became second-in-charge in April 1969. However, by the late summer of 1970, Mao became wary of Lin himself as a potential rival who had proposed that Mao become President which at the time was a ceremonial position from which President Liu Shaoqi (刘少奇) and been removed and died under torture.

This was the country called the People's Republic of China that the Canadian government under Pierre Trudeau recognized on October 13, 1970. Nine years earlier, Trudeau and Hebert had published Two Innocents in Red China about their tour during the Great Leap Forward. Forty million had died of famine induced by government policies during the country's leap of faith in Mao. By 1970, one can say that Trudeau knew exactly what had happened during The Great Chinese Famine of 1959-61 (三年大饥荒) within The Great Leap Forward of 1958-62 (大跃进) followed by The Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution beginning in 1966 (无产阶级文化大革命). To know that he knew one only needs to quote Trudeau himself from his book. "Everyone knows that the Communists summarily rushed to the gallows or to jail many of the great landed proprietors. It was the genius of Mao Tse-tung to realize the extent to which his revolution must depend on the peasants, and he mercilessly suppressed the class that inspired in these peasants awe, respect, and submissiveness towards outworn traditions.”

Canada's recognition of an authoritarian regime led by a paranoid megalomaniac during a revolution and civil war was one thing, but its disavowal of the Republic of China was another thing. That was the condition though that Canada had to accept in order to normalize relations with the People's Republic of China. As Canada recognized the PRC on October 13, 1970 it suspended diplomatic relations with the ROC.

Isn't it ever so curious that the Canadian government had the time and determination to recognize the PRC on October 13, 1970 after James Cross had been kidnapped on October 5th, the FLQ Manifesto was published on October 8th, Pierre Laporte was kidnapped and killed on October 10th and just before Martial Law was declared on the 16th of October 1970? It was said that the recognition had been in the works since 1968; but, that does not seem to be an entirely satisfactory explanation.

To some degree the situation in Canada was eerily mirroring the chaotic situation in authoritarian China just about a year earlier when martial law had been declared. There was a major difference though in Canada. Martial Law was invoked through the War Measures Act in peace time on the basis of "apprehended insurrection". The justification was very clear. It was not real insurrection, but rather apprehended or perceived insurrection.

To an impartial observer it might seem that Prime Minister Trudeau overreacted to the actions of two FLQ cells called Liberation and Chénier comprising about ten members when he invoked the War Measures Act with Parliamentary approval. Might he have had remembrances of himself in 1942 as a young man at the age of 23 who apparently had been a leading organizer of a revolutionary cell called "LX"? Its purpose was to conduct a coup leading to a "corporatist independent Catholic and French Quebec."

There were 12,000 Canadian troops mobilized on a peacekeeping mission mainly in Montreal during the October Crisis. The number exceeded the 4,963 Canadian troops who participated at Dieppe during WWII. As a young man, Trudeau had called the European theatre an "imperialistic war" which had no relevance to French Canadians even though France itself fell. He confirmed his opposition to the war by being thrown out the Canadian Officer Training Corps for lack of discipline in 1940. In 1942, Trudeau gave an anti-conscription speech where he claimed government "traitors" should be "impaled alive".Yet, as a fifty-one year old and Prime Minister he compelled an army of overwhelming force to suppress an "apprehended insurrection" as opposed to a real insurrection or for that matter--war. It seems a classic case of overkill, so to speak, in order to consolidate power for a leader.

Quebec went through many waves of bombings between 1963 and 1969. However, they were perpetuated by a small group of thugs organized into cells. By 1970, 23 of this group were in prison. That left only two active cells of ten persons--hardly an insurrection. At the beginning of 1970, the tactic of those cells changed to include kidnappings. However, something more strange than that occurence was happening which is evidenced by the timelines.

On February 26, two Front de libération du Québec (FLQ) members were arrested in a panel truck. They were Pierre Marcil and Jacques Lanctôt who was leader of the Liberation cell. They had in their possession a sawed off shotgun and a communiqué announcing the kidnapping of the Israeli consul. Yet, Lanctôt was released on bail. Again, in June, police de la Communauté urbaine de Montreal (CUM) raided a home in Prévost where they found firearms, ammunition, 140 kg of dynamite, detonators, and the draft of a ransom note to be used in the kidnapping of the United States consul by Marcil and Lanctôt, but it is unclear if any arrests were made. At any rate, one might say in both cases there was no "smoking gun" of insurrection.

As of December 29, 1970 there were 453 persons arrested with suspected ties to the FLQ. It is rather telling that 435 were eventually released without being charged. It seems to reinforce the notion of an apprehended insurrection as opposed to a real insurrection. Furthermore, it suggests authorities were looking for reasons to excuse the actions of a few based on perception of just cause.

It is true that kidnappers and killers of Pierre Laporte from the FLQ's Chénier cell were charged with kidnapping and murder. However, those of the FLQ's Liberation Cell were treated with unusual leniency and accomodative expediency with the release of James Cross. The cell's revolutionaries who included Jacques Lanctôt were given safe passage to Cuba as a result of Trudeau's negotiations with Castro. Trudeau was not unfamiliar with the dictator. He had taken a canoe with a shrimp boat as escort to Cuba on May 1, 1960 in order to visit him. In later life, he joked to Castro in Spanish that he was suspected of running guns to the island and Castro followed up that an aircraft carrier would have been better.

There has been a cover-up of Pierre Trudeau's involvement in the October Crisis. The files of CSIS (Canada's spy agency) which covered a forty year period were destroyed in 1989. This fact was discovered by the National Post on June 15, 2019. Why did the files go back forty years?

One suspects they may have included Pierre Trudeau's trip to Moscow in April 1952. He led a Communist delegation to an economic conference organized by The Communist World Peace Council and The Communist World Federation of Trade Unions. It does not serve any purpose to label Trudeau with any particular political ideology. However, it is of some importance to quote Trudeau's own declaration to the wife of U.S. chargé d’affaires in Moscow which seemed to shock more than awe. He remarked that "he was a Communist and a Catholic and was in Moscow to criticize the U.S. and praise the Soviet Union”.

An anti-imperialist, American attitude over the years seemed to motivate Trudeau as much as a pro Communist one. This is evident in his dealings with Communist China, too. Let us not forget that Trudeau began negotiating about the recognition of China by Canada in 1968 or at the time of the Vietnam War. Both Russia and China were fighting proxy wars with the United States in North Vietnam. It was in 1967 that China reached its maximum number of troops in North Vietnam which numbered 170,000 according to Zhai Qiang in his book China and the Vietnam wars. Logistical support in the form of guns, artillery pieces and more continued up until 1975. The Soviet Union with its 3000 troops and more Spetznaz forces supplied North Vietnam with arms, tanks, planes, helicopters, artillery, anti-aircraft missiles, and other military equipment.

Trudeau had become leader of the Liberal Party and won an election with an overwhelming majority in his first term. However, he had consolidated power in a few persons around him some of whom were not elected. Neither the Parliament, Party nor the Cabinet ran the country, but rather his clique. The War Measures Act further consolidated his power. As Robert Fulford said "More importantly, he withdrew most of the power of the ministers and centralized all authority in his office and the Privy Council office."

In the administration of Justin Trudeau there was no "apprehended crisis" since the early infectious disease warning program in place for decades had been dismantled six months before the COVID-19 outbreak. Few were aware that a leading Chinese scientist had been escorted out of the Level 4 biosecurity lab at the National Microbiology Laboratory two weeks after the warning system was dismantled. To this day no one but the author has suspected a link between these two events as well as the end of the Predict early warning system of the US.

One may say that Justin Trudeau has taken a similar approach to consolidation of power. His foremost advisor was Gerald Butts who acted as the Principal Secretary to the Prime Minister ie. a non-elected official. He found it necessary to resign in order to protect his friend the Prime Minister. Justin Trudeau forced the resignation of his Minister of Justice and Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould and his Minister of Health Jane Philpott over their objections to the SNC scandal. Basically, everyone was forced to resign except the one person responsible for the whole mess--the Prime Minister himself.

Furthermore, his minority government attempted to push through a COVID Bill in March 2020. It would would have granted the finance minister the right to spend money, tax Canadians, and purchase or hold a company’s shares without the approval of Parliament until Dec. 31, 2021 or a span of 21 months. Trudeau argued that the government should be granted exceptional powers during the adjournment of Parliament to deal with a pandemic that was moving extremely quickly. That's really only a half-truth. The Prime Minister moved extremely slowly during January, February and March in response to COVID-19. The procrastination led to a crisis.

What both Pierre Trudeau and his son Justin have in common is the desire to promote socialism as they understand it through the Liberal Party. In a chapter of Social Purpose for Canada, Pierre Trudeau writes in 1961 that "Federalism must be welcomed as a valuable tool which permits dynamic parties to plant socialist governments in certain provinces, from which the seed of radicalism can slowly spread.” Trudeau cited the example of the superb strategist Mao Tse-tung in a vast, heterogeneous country.

At the top of Justin Trudeau's agenda is a basic income plan which would function similiar to the Canada Emergency Response Benefit. It will cost roughly $44 billion annually, but ironically may mean those who receive it will be worse off with cuts to other programs. It is really a part of unbridled spending and unrestricted borrowing which earlier forced the resignation of the Minister of Finance Bill Morneau. It is a system of socialism with Canadian characteristics or as the Chinese say of their system Marxist-Leninist "socialism with Chinese characteristics" (中国特色社会主义).

In summary, Pierre Trudeau over-reacted to an "apprehended insurrection" during the October Crisis of 1970 after waves of bombings by invoking the War Measures Act. Habeus corpus was suspended. Before the army was sent in he quipped "Just watch me". He intended to promote federalism or a strong state by suspending separation of Quebec with the presence of troops. His foreign policy reflected this circmstance by recognizing the PRC even though it was in the midst of a revolution where millions had died and martial law declared to eliminate rivals. The recognition of China also entailed that diplomatic relations with the Republic of China be severed. In other words, Trudeau equated democratic Canada in peacetime with authoritarian PRC during revolution and Quebec with the Republic of China in terms of separation. He successfully negotiated with the kidnappers of Cross; although, many demands of the the FLQ Liberation Cell were met.

In contrast, Justin Trudeau underreacted to the COVID-19 crisis because the early warning system to infectious diseases had been terminated under his watch and there was a cover-up of what went on at the National Microbiology Institute in Winnipeg and its relation and interaction with the National Institute of Virology in Wuhan, Hunan where in all probability COVID-19 was released if not custom designed. By delaying recognition and reaction to the severity of the crisis in China and its spread to Canada his government allowed the situation to reach crisis levels in Canada. Chinese unimpairedly entered all points of entry to Justin Trudeau's so-called "post-nationalist nation".

As the first wave hit Canada, he suspended Parliament and attempted to gain unfettered power. Mysteriously, a contract between the government of Canada and a Chinese company was made to develop a vaccine and more mystifyingly it went "poof' into thin air thereby delaying access to other vaccines. Before the second wave his minority government prorogued Parliament which had been preoccupied with the WE Charity scandal of his making. Little was done regarding COVID-19 during this period which allowed the second wave to gain momentum. Before and during the COVID-19 crisis Spavor and Kovrig have remained prisoners of hostage diplomacy. Justin Trudeau might just have well said "Don't watch me" as far any repercussions to China.

One might say that Pierre Trudeau took an active role in response to an "apprehended insurrection" while his son took a passive role in terms of an abysmal response to the COVID-19 pandemic. One person died who was kidnapped and killed in the October Crisis. More than twice as many Canadians have died in the COVID-19 crisis in Canada compared to China and the toll rises. Justin Trudeau ignores this inconvenient truth. Pierre Elliott Trudeau's China policy anticipated the American recognition of China in peace time, but Justin Trudeau's China policy has been long on talk and short on action regarding China's social record on civil and human rights, double-dealing and duplicity in economics as well as bellicosity in asymmetrical warfare and wolf diplomacy. The Canadian hostages remain behind bars in China while Justin Trudeau delays, deflects and distracts from failure of a foreign policy regarding China and its implications domestically with respect to national security. Finally, the advancement of political power and a socialist agenda were first and foremost in their minds for father and son during an apprehended and real crisis respectively.
