“The prime minister calling the (Chinese) president is essentially the last arrow in our quiver,” 

John McCallum

The Ambassador waits until Valentine's Day.



The reader will find in this report various disparate elements strung together under the general thread of security. One might justifiably argue that national security is a priority for Canadians; so, it would be reasonable to begin there. This might be followed by personal security with which the individual is most concerned. Finally, a short analysis of cyber security will be provided by dealing with a particular problem which is symbolic of the growing on-line threat faced by Canadians. The December edition of Popular Mechanics rates fear or terror of corrupt politicians to be felt by 74.5% of the population. In other words, it is believed that the government doesn't solve the problem of terror--it creates it. The perception of multiple security threats is real for many people as they pertain to national, personal and cyber security.


                             Mr. Michael Kovrig

The author submits to the reader that the detainment of Michael Kovrig is a matter of national security. The reason is simple. He is an expert on "conflict prevention on the Korean peninsula, with a focus on Chinese ideas for de-escalating tensions between Washington and Pyongyang". One might deduce from his arrest that the Chinese are not interested in conflict prevention or resolution, but rather they revel in it through the use of bully tactics and terror. As Kovrig is tortured in a black jail, Kim Jong-un arrives in Beijing by armoured train. The Chinese and North Koreans would very much like to know what Kovrig knows from a western perspective about the Korean Peninsula. Their idea of harmony sounds like a screech of chalk on an old black board. It is imperative to get him released in the most expeditious, expedient and effective manner which is a swap of seven Canadian prisoners for Mdme Meng. Today, John Manley who is a former, foreign affairs minister said that the extradition process could drag on for a year while the Canadian detainees are held in prison.

Let the author agree with Justin Trudeau that Mr. Kovrig is not a diplomat. Let the author agree with Justin Trudeau who says Mr. Kovrig is a diplomat. A few hours ago the Chinese Foreign Ministry said that he does not have diplomatic immunity. What is most important is that Mr. Kovrig be returned home as quickly as possible whether or not he is a diplomat who has diplomatic immunity. On the basis of human rights though and equality under the rule of law, the other six detainees should be released at the same time. All seven need to be returned at the same time.


                     One day retrial of Schellenberg

There was breaking news a few minutes ago. Schellenberg has just been sentenced to death according to Vanderklippe of The Globe and Mail. The court has ruled that Schellenberg was a core member of an international drug trafficking conspiracy. If the government had acted earlier on a swap of prisoners this trial needn’t have happened. The author reiterates what he has said. Trade immediately all seven Canadians for Mdme Meng. The Schellenberg case will have to be settled separately.

The author has described in great detail how he was held under house arrest in 2003 at the time Sun Dawu and six other employees (for a total of seven) of the Dawu Group were arrested and held in jail. The author joins a long list of individuals who have been held under house arrest. They include the wife of Liu Xiaobo and Mao Yushi.


              Mao Yushi is seated second from right

Mao Yushi is the founder of the liberal economic think-tank called Unirule. In 1960, he was sent to the countryside based on a speech given by Mao Tse-tung based "On the Correct Handling of Contradictions Among the People". He was labelled an ultra-rightist. This was during the worst famine in modern history induced by government planning. On May 17, 2018 he was locked-out of his office as the think-tanks from all over the world discussed the officially approved One Belt One Road with one voice. However, he was also prevented from leaving home for the duration of the conference. In a variation of the locked-out approach, members of Unirule were locked-in their offices in August 2018 as the doors were welded.


     Door is welded to lock Unirule's employees inside

The author wishes today to wish Mao Yushi a Happy Birthday! He was born on January 14, 1929. The main celebration for today's birthday was actually held earlier in 2018. It is surmised that the liberal economist didn't want ultra-leftists who support the Mao Tse-tung faction of the Party to interrupt those who celebrated the anniversary of his birthday. It so happens that in 2017 at the time of his birthday his website was shutdown.


           Peter Garrett in front of his coffee shop

One might say with respect to Kovrig and Spavor that they were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Spavor was arrested in Dandong on the China-North Korean border. That was where the Garretts were arrested. In fact, the harrowing accounts of the Garretts arrest, his trial and forced confession had just been published before the arrests of the two Canadians. The title of the novel is Two Tears on the Window

Kovrig was actually sent into the lion's den by our own Prime Minister to deal with the Huawei crisis involving the detention of Meng Wanzhou. If Kovrig were sent to China without a diplomatic passport then his security risks increased exponentially. That is why his status as a diplomat was so important. If he were a diplomat then he would have had a diplomatic passport as Bains did when he had trouble over his turban at the Detroit airport.

However, the real crisis with Huawei did not happen overnight nor was it by happenstance. It was a designed crisis over years of failed policy of the Liberal government led by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. In spite of continuous warning from security experts, Trudeau proceeded with the development of the 5G Huawei network in Canada. He has not renounced it yet, nor will he be likely to as long as Meng Wanzhou is under detention. The security of the seven hostages is jeopardized in the meantime.


The liberal Scott Bradley who had failed to gain a seat in his election campaign chose to leave BCE Inc. and join Huawei. Coincidentally, BCE became one of the major purchasers of Huawei equipment. Bradley recently resigned from Huawei. If Huawei is judged to be a national security risk then BCE may be left with losses from its investment in the 5G infrastructure of Huawei. Those potential, substantial tax losses along with those of Telus may be borne by the Canadian taxpayer. If we are forced to bear the burden of these tax losses then the author demands "proof positive" that the used equipment cannot be resold but must be scrapped. Under no circumstance should it be sold directly or indirectly to Huawei at fire sale prices.

It must be said though that the Garretts, Kovrig or Spavor had no public websites dedicated to civil rights, democracy, rule of law and republicanism within the People's Republic of China as did the author. It is true that the emphasis of the sites transitioned from the mainland to the homeland with regard to China-Canada relations; however, the mainland was never neglected. For example, he has always lent support to Mao Yushi who was declared a traitor by the Maoists. If there is one thing the Maoists don't like is another Mao by the same name. The risk to the author's personal security increased with the arrests of intellectuals, civil rights activists and lawyers beginning in 2015. These arrests have not been arrested in 2019--pardon the pun. They were all reported and commented upon by the author.

My readers have been briefly apprised of the author's decision not to work as a teacher at Dawu Group in September 2018. He was offered a Letter of Invitation by the Group. In effect, the position would have offered an "iron rice bowl" providing airfare, apartment, hospital and drug plans as well as pension benefits. The author's standard of living would have improved immeasurably. He would also have rejoined friends.


                    Eight Apartment building seized arbitrarily

However, when the author refused the position he cited the Garrett's and John Chang's arrest as the reason. He judged the probability of his arrest as high if he were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Keep in mind that 8 apartment buildings of the Group had just been seized as bargaining chips (or if one wants to use an anthropomorphism) as eight hostages by the local government.

The author had a strong, nostalgic desire to visit the Group with a visitor's visa in October as part of an overall tour of China. He had been invited by the Group to attend the International Festival held at that location. However, he declined the offer again because of personal security concerns. He again cited security concerns with the shuttering of doors of the Unirule Institute. It may be said that the Group did not fully understand his concerns. They do so now with the arrest of Meng Wanzhou along with the Canadians Kovrig and Spavor. Instead, he asked the Group to visit him in Canada and hinted at his ability to facilitate their visa through a professional Canadian immigration service.

For the first time, though, the author discloses publically his private security concerns regarding a business proposal which exceeded one hundred million Canadian dollars. In other words, he would either enter China with a business visa along with a government delegation or conduct business in Canada with guests from the mainland along with Canadian government officials. The scope of the project involved investments in the mainland and homeland in the areas of manufactured food associated with glucose, generation of diesel fuel from cellulose, building projects involving hundreds of laborers and educational projects at both the high school level and in the vocational area.

Because of security concerns the author preferred that the business meeting was to take place in Canada. He therefore visited the local Liberal constituency office. He was given no encouragement and was given every reason why nothing could be done with respect to business. He never was given the opportunity to meet the Liberal member.

The closest he came to the member was a 19 minute telephone conversation with the member's male secretary in Ottawa. The author explained that he wished the government to extend a Letter of Invitation to the Chinese enterprise since this would guarantee the issuance of Canadian business visas. The secretary responded that the author could write the letter of invitation himself thereby implying the Liberal government had no interest in the matter. Finally, the author responded to the secretary that he was laissez-faire. There was a long pause from the secretary as if he didn't understand the phrase or its application. The author had to define its meaning to him.

There are two reasons that the author mentions this proposal now. First, he doesn't want to give the impression that he is merely a critic of the Liberal government. He tried to work with them to create jobs and opportunities in Canada. Second, the proposal included provisions about how to deal with his concerns about personal security if he were to visit China.

In the proposal to the enterprise (of which the government was given a copy) there were provisions stipulated regarding the author's personal security if he were arrested for any reason on the mainland. The corporation was to guarantee the provision of $US 1 million for his legal defense. This money would be used to hire the best civil rights lawyer in New York to represent him. It would ensure that the case would garner international attention and that he would get the best legal defense. The second provision was that a lawsuit would be filed against the Chinese government on behalf of the defendant and the corporation under terms of the Canada-China FIPA agreement. It would seek US$5 million in compensation.


Sun Dawu and D. Carlton Rossi two weeks prior to their arrest in 2003

The latter provision explains why the author would only visit China under a Chinese business visa. He had no diplomatic immunity. He needed a way to protect himself if he were arrested, for example, under a charge involving National Security. Remember that he had been threatened with a charge of National Security with his arrest in 2003. The underlying purpose of these provisions were to discourage his arrest by Chinese authorities who would be aware of them. They would face international scrutiny, legal repercussions and financial consequences if he were arrested for arbitrary reasons concerning National Security. The author has no doubt that if he had been in China at the wrong time and place during the Huawei crisis he would have been arrested along with Kovrig and Spavor.

The author will now touch on one aspect of cyber security which may interest some of his readers who tweet. In the past, he has cautioned tweeters to not provide hypertext links to articles in the South China Morning Post or SCMP. Simply quote or paraphrase some sentences and leave the decision to the readers whether or not they will search for the article. In recent years, the internet version appears to get more information than it gives--particularly when the reader scans human rights issues, protests and arrests. In other words, it seems to mine data. They appear to learn more about you than you will ever learn from the article.

Recently, the author read an article about the arrest of Meng Wanzhou on the internet version of the SCMP. On two separate occasions his internet connection was cut. One might say this was coincidence. However, there was also a coincidental effort to access a Chinese backup program called EASEUS To Do Backup free 11.5 on the author's computer. This program was developed by CHENGDU Yiwo Tech Development Co., Ltd. They have garnered a good reputation in the backup field since 2004. However, when the connections were cut someone through something was trying to access the bin of EASEUS. Furthermore, the shredder settings had been changed from a military level US DoD 5220.22-M Algorithm to a weaker Pseudorandom Algorithm. In short, a program was designed to read deleted material.

The writer will let the reader in on what is now an open secret by its disclosure. He doesn't worry about these kind of trite, technical issues any more. He has learned from his Chinese experience. If a typical Chinese has a software issue then he formats his computer. Everything is wiped out. In a comparable way, the author adapted this approach to his cyber security if it were threatened. He has organized a collection of various makes and models of computers which he uses. They are regarded as disposable. If there is a technical issue on one computer that cannot be solved then the computer is literally crushed. It is wiped out of existence.

In conclusion, security risks involving national, personal and cyber security are high. Many of the risks are associated in one way or the other way with China. It is sad for the author to see how things that he experienced or was aware of in China over more than two and a half decades now influence the everyday lives of Canadians. Canadians are unaware of these threats as they should be and do not know how to deal with them.

The worst scenario is how the Liberal government under Trudeau is jeopardizing the national security of Canada with its intimate involvement with Huawei 5G technology despite warnings from security experts and paradoxically the arrest of Meng Wanzhou at the request of the politically motivated Trump administration. In some respects, the Huawei 5G debacle in Canada is an outcome of secret Free-Trade talks with China and parallels the secret collusion of Trump with Russian officials in the area of oil sanctions. Both 5G and oil infrastructures are critical to the national security of China and Russia respectively. No wonder the greatest fear of an overwhelming majority of citizens in the United States and Canada is of corrupt government officials at the expense of your national, personal and cyber security.

This site has been active for the last 9 years. Its progenitors were the 50 websites listed under the webspawner banner which were activated in 2003. However, the federal government is bereft of a coherent China policy. It has next to no experts on this subject. It consults no independent experts nor those with a modicum of common sense on a China policy or strategies. The government does not serve the interests of either Canada or Canadians on the matter of China. Therefore, the author will archive the sundawu.ca site at the end of February. His other sites will remain active, but in a minimalist way.

This is a red letter day!   The author's first tweet on CBC.

Former ambassador criticized fact Kovrig and Spavor cases weren't on the official agenda

Catharine Tunney, Salimah Shivji

· CBC News · Posted: Jan 06, 2019 5:51 PM ET

I'm confused. The Canada-China Legislative Association (CACN) said that their trade trip had been planned for January 7, 2019. However, the itinerary for the trip was not posted on the activity section of their site. Second, they said that they would not make public any discussions about the detention of two Canadians. Now, they are singing like canaries. Third, is the CACN speaking for Canada or themselves or the Chinese? What a way to conduct diplomacy! Why are we trading with the Chinese when two Canadians are detained?



                         Ministry of China Affairs

China Affairs would be a strange sounding name for a ministry of the federal government. It sounds more like a department at a university such as East Asian Studies in the U of T. The strangeness of the name though reflects our government's misjudgement, misunderstanding and mistakeness of the most populous country on the face of the Earth. We need a separate and independent ministry apart from Foreign Affairs to deal with the challenges and opportunities presented by one leader, one party and One Belt One Road.


      Trudeau travels through South-East Asia in 1948

Our modern impression of China, one might say, began with Pierre Trudeau. As a young man he visited China in the tumultuous period of 1948--just prior to the establishment of the People's Republic of China. One would have difficulty separating revolution and war at that time.


Then, in 1960, he toured the country. His experiences were chronicled in a book called Two Innocents in Red China. That title says everything because the Chinese organized the tour as a propaganda exercise extolling the revolution. The Canadians were dupes.


           Peasants eat grass during Great Leap Forward

As China moved from an agriculture society to an industrial one it undertook mandatory agricultural collectivization in The Great Leap Forward from 1958 to 1962. In this process, the government gained a monopoly on food so it could buy low and sell high to finance industrialization. The result was a famine that killed tens of millions. Yet, Trudeau wrote "Who was it that vanquished this implacable enemy [famine]? Mao."

In the next decade, Trudeau was instrumental in the opening of China. It is well known that he initiated talks regarding normalization of Canada-China relations in 1968. Those talks bore fruition on October 13, 1970 when diplomatic relations were established. Let us not forget though that the period in China from 1966-1976 was the Cultural Revolution. Millions more were killed.


               Military stands guard on Parliament Hill

What is not recognized so easily is the juxtaposition of the normalization of relations with the October crisis of 1970 in Canada. James Cross was kidnapped on October 5th. This began the crisis. Then, Pierre Laporte who was Quebec Minister of Labour was kidnapped on October 15th. A day later and only three days after the normalization with China, the War Measures Act suspended basic rights and liberties. The FLQ had switched its tactics from bombings to kidnapping to achieve their goal of separation.

Of course, it is a coincidence that normalization and the FLQ crisis occurred at the same time. It does though show that Trudeau naively misunderstood how the Cultural Revolution was conducted through mass terror and also underestimated how a Quiet Revolution in Quebec could degenerate quickly into chaos. Generally speaking, it might be said that in the abstract he was not opposed to revolutionary spirit, but he was shocked to see how quickly law and order could be thrown aside in a nasty, real way.


Canada-China FIPA Agreement   (Sold down the Yangtze)

One might say that subsequent politicians have been similarly naive. They have concentrated on trade with China rather than human and civil rights. There has been a deficit in trade and a dearth of support for rights--in other words, a lose-lose scenario. More recently, a FIPA agreement with China under the Harper Government gave up some of our economic independence because decisions would be made by an arbitration panel. Free-trade with China means that our basic infrastructure would be controlled by Chinese SOE's. An extradition agreement with China would see an erosion of our Charter of Rights and Freedoms.


Sun Yat-sen overthrows Ming Dynasty in Xinhai Revolution

Generally speaking, there has been a revolution every ten years from the Xinhai Revolution (辛亥革命) in 1911 to the Cultural Revolution (无产阶级文化大革命). However, in 1978, Socialism with Chinese characteristics was introduced by Deng Xiaoping. This was reform rather than revolution. However, he called the reform a "second revolution". In a system described as "Socialism with Chinese Characteristics" (中国特色社会主义) the middle-class grew through profits of private enterprise and poverty was reduced. The SOE's did not contribute to the growth through the generation of profits.


             China's Fourth Industrial Revolution--AI

Canada is unprepared for the next revolution in China. It is called a "reform", but make no mistake, it is a revolution with a dark side. It is the AI revolution which is spearheaded by Huawei. Its technology will be used to monitor, control and subjugate the Chinese people. Already its technology is being tested in the Xinjiang region. When this technology is combined with the Social Credit system which mines data it will go beyond the Orwellian state envisioned in 1984.

It is nonsensical for Justin Trudeau to strive for a Free-Trade agreement with China by dealing with Chinese state-owned or controlled corporations. For example, in the takeover of Aecon or Canada's third largest construction firm, the SOE was taking over a profitable corporation. Yet, SOE's do not make profits. This has been said time and again by Mao Yushi who is a respected economist of the Unirule Institute. They are run for state reasons and for the benefit of party members.


            Finance Minister Bill Morneau and the AIIB

One might argue that our Minister of Finance had contributed funds to the Beijing based Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) with the hopes of financing the overseas operations of companies like Aecon. However, the 1.5 billion Canadian takeover of Aecon by the world's largest engineering and construction firm (CCCC) was stopped on the grounds of national security. No one is suggesting that Canada was indirectly and unawaredly funding the takeover of its own company.

Is Canada able to get out of the AIIB? The answer is yes with six months notice. However, getting back the funds is a slow process. While only about 20% of the paid in capital will go to the bank it will be part of the total contribution of about 2.9 billion Canadian according to Trevor Tombe in a Maclean's article dated on September 8, 2016.

In a more up-to-date article of November 22, 2018, Marie Danielle Smith of The National Post comments that despite the government's rosy promises no Canadian investor or business has benefited by the involvement with AIIB. According to Conservative MP Ron Liepert there has been no Canadian investor engagement in the 32 projects to date. Why therefore is Canada contributing to a bank that has provided no benefits to date and where bids could be made on procurement contracts without membership in the bank?

If there were a Ministry of China Affairs then this inconsistency might be prevented or eliminated. Why are we driving up interest rates in Canada by making funds scarcer as we provide loans to the AIIB? Why don't we provide these funds for our own infrastructure rather than the infrastructure of One Belt One Road somewhere else? Get something straight. Our Canadian policy is not One Belt One Road whether it is here or on the Moon. That policy is Looney. We make our own destiny as a sovereign nation.

A Ministry of China Affairs would have a more realistic understanding of China with regard to a rule based system. China does not play by the rules. It bends and twists the rules. If you thought rules of the WTO would gradually bring China to an international standard then you misjudged. If you believed that China would follow the United Nations rules of the sea in the South China Sea then you misunderstand the island building program. If you turned a blind eye to the arrests of lawyers and civil rights activists in China as a precursor to the re-education camps in Xinjiang Province then you are mistaken. Do you need any more evidence than the statement of the head prosecutor in China who declared publically before a possible trial that the Kovrig and Spavor are endangering National Security?

The author was not able to speak out about civil rights in China as an employee of the state or as a resident. If he had done so he would have been sent on the first plane back to Canada. Instead, he endeavored to teach creative thinking rather than English out of outdated textbooks which talked of social injustices in the United States rather than China. He did take a stand in support of the peasant class beginning with his arrest in 2003. The two Sun cases or Sun Dawu and Sun Zhejiang were the beginning of the civil rights movement in China. Today, that movement has been crushed as was the demonstration for democracy (六四事件) at Tiananmen in 1989.

Since his return to Canada the author has been an observer of Chinese affairs on the mainland. He can't do much about the situation. What he can do something about is to ensure that Canada's rule of law, democracy and national security is protected at all costs from actions of Chinese party members through SOE's, state sponsored companies, Confucius Institutes, universities, takeovers, drugs, bitcoin mining, money laundering, property speculation, immigration, thefts of intellectual property, cyber theft, corruption, campaign contributions and gifts to foundations etc. National security must take precedence over rule of law and democracy. However, it has to be done within a coherent policy of the government which employs sensible strategies under a Ministry which understands the situation. The situation is serious enough to employ the Emergency Measures Act. These affairs are now our internal affairs in Canada. They are China Affairs in Canada.


                   CFO Meng Wanzhou of Huawei

Mdme Meng is Huawei. No decision can be made for or against Huawei's involvement in 5G technology in Canada until she is released. Canada's national security and economic stability may be threatened in the meantime. It is imperative to immediately resolve her issue even at the expense of an extradition obligation with the US tainted by political interference. The best way is not Huawei, the American way, but our way. Trade her for seven Canadian hostages.

The author has spoken out about how our Immigration Department has farmed out investigative procedures for a Canadian visa to a Chinese company. They seem rather proud of it because Canada is the first western country to do it. Is anyone asking the basic question of why Canada is doing so and why it is the only one?


                                       Chinese Ten Year Tourist Visa

There has been an issue with 10 year visas. In 2012, the Chinese were given the right to apply for 10 year visas. Yet, it took three years for Canadians to get reciprocity. In that period, this Canadian was leaving China every two months so that he could re-enter on a visitor's visa. If our freedom of information law was not the weakest in the western world this author would ask just how many 10 year visas have been granted to Chinese since 2012 and how many to Canadians since 2015? The difference would probably astound you, but the figure is unknown. Perhaps the new People's Party of Canada will take up the issue.

The author suspects that Canada is being overwhelmed with tourists on 10 year visas from China. Why would they apply for a single visa when a 10 year visa is about the same cost? However, a proportionate number of Canadians do not get Chinese 10 year visas. Canada has lost control of the situation. Someone in a Ministry of China Affairs might ask why the numbers were not equal and would not be satisfied by the response that China has a much greater population. That someone would point out that the citizens of Hong Kong are complaining about the influx of Chinese tourists which drive up prices and create shortages while the promises made to them of self rule are vacuous.

If Canadians are not very careful then Canada will become a vassal state of China. You have already paid tribute in the form of Norsat and loans to the Asian Bank. You will have a semblance of rule of law and democracy as they do in Hong Kong, but you will be ruled by a Party on the mainland that uses the constitution as a prop of propaganda to rule by law enforced by intimidation, fear and terror. China is now touting the Hong Kong example as a model for Taiwan. They will take Taiwan as a sacred duty of an officially atheistic state.

                             A Typical Day

The author's poetry and prose would be even more prolific and qualitatively better if he wasn't constantly distracted by security issues on-line.




                        Monkey in the Middle

There were five Canadians in Chinese prisons over the last couple of years who are still there. They are Chang, Sun, Celil, Wang and Xiao. The Garratts, too, were arrested under the broad umbrella of national security.


                The almost unpronounceable Huawei

This teacher is retired. He does not wish to give a lesson to Liberal politicians (nor would it be welcomed) on how to pronounce the word "Huawei" in Chinese. He does not wish to remind them of the difference between the words "private" and "collective" as it applies to Huawei and, by the way, what is the meaning of the term "State-Owned Enterprise" in China. He regards it as a futile exercise to politely remind politicians that Canada's premier technological and by far its largest company called Northern Telecom was seemingly pillaged and plundered by Chinese agents leading coincidentally and apparently unconnectedly to the rise of Huawei.


                              John Chang and his Family
                                      in happier times

                                    FIVE LIVES

There are currently five Canadians who are incarcerated in the People's Republic of China. Canadian negotiators have not been successful in getting them off and out of China. The author contends, generally speaking, that officials have placed a priority on achieving free trade rather than a release of prisoners. With regard to free trade there are a lot of secret discussions in camera with the Chinese; however, our government only pays public, lip service to issues regarding the release of Canadian prisoners. In other words, the emphasis is placed on free trade rather than free the prisoners. As has been mentioned earlier by the author one cannot do both at the same time.

                  Let's have Real Free-Trade!

                             Meng Wanzhou

It goes without saying that Meng Wanzhou should be treated respectfully.

It goes without saying that Chang John, Sun Qian,
Celil Huseyin, Wang Bingzhang and Xiao Jianhua should be treated respectfully.

                                 Celil Huseyin


                            Dr. Wang Bingzhang


                                   Xiao Jianhua

Shouldn't Meng be allowed to return to China? Shouldn't Chang, Sun, Celil, Wang and Xiao be allowed to return to Canada?

It won't be long before it is Chinese New Year. It won't be long before it is Christmas and the New Year.

It is a time for family reunion.

Canadians do not like to be kept in the dark concerning non-transparent, secret talks and matters between the Chinese and Canadian governments. If an extradition treaty is a "long, long, long way off" according to Ambassador McCallum then why are representatives wasting time on the matter and not devoting more time to exploration of free-trade--whatever free-trade means. There really has never been free-trade nor will there ever be free-trade anywhere or anytime. However, there is an important issue that requires the full attention of consular officials in China; namely, the arrest of a Canadian on a Canadian passport who has been thrown in cell 414 under Article 300.



Canadian couple recounts ‘survival story’ of their detention in China

Nathan Vanderklippe 

Asia Correspondent



“For the first time in my life, I felt this could be my last night alive,” she writes in Two Tears on the Window, a new self-published book that recounts in vivid detail what happened during more than two years the couple spent caught up in Canada’s relations with an authoritarian state that is the world’s second-largest economy.

It’s widely believed they were apprehended in August, 2014, as reprisal against Canada for the arrest, weeks earlier, of Chinese citizen Su Bin in British Columbia. Mr. Su was sentenced in the United States to nearly four years in prison for his role in organizing the hacking of technical data on military aircraft.
