I thought I should start a new topic, since this problem is not simply tied to the construction up in the Peace Valley.

what problem?

I have a problem with foreign SOE's making wind turbines and solar panels, which are being bought and paid for with our taxpayer dollars. I think there should be a moratorium on all wind turbine and solar panel production, preferably indefinitely. Let the foreign SOE's build that crap for the Euro-trash who want to waste their taxpayer dollars. Leave our dollars at home, building pipelines and hydro-electric projects instead.

I read the link - it's about the Chinese government taking over some retirement homes. I just don't understand how you can be so upset about that, yet stay silent about Chinese SOE's producing useless wind turbines and stupid solar panels. Why doesn't this bother you? Why aren't you calling for a complete ban on them?

Correct if I am wrong, but didn't the SOE take control of a Chinese company that owns a business in Canada.

I don't see anything about the Chinese government taking over a Canadian owned company.

Well then, you misread the article. Not only that, but you fail to understand the difference between foreign investment and foreign GOVERNMENTS taking over Canadian companies.

What Canadian company got taken over by the Chinese government, all I can see is the Chinese government took over a Chinese company called Anbang Insurance, which has holdings in Canada.

They may have got seniors facilities, but it was not owned by a Canadian company, when they got it.

From the Financial Post

CALGARY – The Chinese government has seized control of Anbang Insurance Group, which is the largest owner of retirement homes in British Columbia, following an investigation of the insurer’s former chairman.


Anbang Insurance Group owns the retirement homes, not any Canadian company. The Chinese government did not take control of any Canadian company.

CF you do realize that Anbang Insurance Group which owns the retirement homes is a Chinese company don't you. You did read your own reference didn't you. All the Chinese Government did was take over a Chinese company.
Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you'll understand what little chance you have of changing others.
