This goof should have been kicked to the curb years ago, an idiot.

I wish I could say that this is the only idiot and biggest embarrassment in our loser Canadian government, but unfortunately there are far bigger idiots. Starting right at the top with our embarrassing PM.

I assume an apology to Andrew Scheer will be forth-coming from the LIEberal hyper-partisan peanut-chuckers?

Its funny you should say that ... When I first saw him speaking to the (mostly) Chinese media and CBC cameras zoomed in on him for a close up, I thought he looked drunk, or medicated (or both?) I don't think you're too far off in your assessment.

So today McCallum was in Vancouver on his way back to China and stopped for a dim-sum lunch. Why was Christy Clark sitting at his right elbow?

Why would that be? It doesn't matter what JT and the Libs do, Scheer and the CONs' only policy is to say and do the opposite.
Dimples was calling on JT to fire Mccullum last week and when JT does that, he's still criticized as being "too little too late".....a whole whopping 5 days [icon_lol2.gif]

dimples is like a gopher; “go fer this, go for that”, and would be far better in a position where he is following direction rather than giving it. It is certainly easy to criticize, but dimples has made it clear he has nothing substantive to offer as a leader. I would be happy to see Trudeau and his government replaced by a more qualified and competent group, but it is clear dimples is not ready and it is unlikely Bernier will be ready to take this next election. The best we can hope for is Bernier leading a strong opposition, and the Conservatives allowed time to step back and regroup.
The ability to suspend judgment and change your mind when warranted is a distinguishing feature of critical thought
– apparently not recognizable to those who don’t have the ability.

^^ Why is Scheer playing right into China's game plan? I can understand Jagmeet being so dumb, by Scheer is really setting a new low bar.

There's been a lot of speculation about why McCallum did what he did, but we'll probably never know the real reason.

However, as it is the role of an ambassador to voice the Official Position of his Government, rather than his personal opinion, McCallum's comments were totally out of line and Trudeau was right to fire him.

Canada is now in the unenviable position of having BOTH of the World's great powers mad at us.

Nice spin but sorry no dice. The biggest question here is: are there any functioning brains in the Liberal party? Is every day going to be another low bar of complete stupidity? Will the hyper-partisan Liberal peanut-chuckers ever take any responsibility for the bumbling losers who are currently running our government or will it be constant deflecting to Harper and Scheer?

Actually, in the opinion of the former ambassador to China (2012 on) China was not really paying attention to McCallum.

China was upset before any of this, because Canada follows the rule of law - and they don't. T.Rump and crew knew exactly what they were up to - taking a shot at China by exploiting Canada and putting Canada in a "spot". Two birds with one stone for T.Rump - he doesn't like Canada and he has a pathological hatred for China.

Note that the US has yet to provide the proper documentation for the extradition hearing to proceed. Is that either deliberate foot dragging or is their case weak and they are scrambling? We don't know - it could be the usual T.Rump admin incompetency.

At any rate, the former ambassador to China seems to think that all of McCallum's remarks were ignored by China. Not sure that is the case, but Guy Saint-Jacques knows a heck of lot more about China than most: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-01-27/trudeau-fires-canada-ambassdor-for-comments-on-meng-wanzhou/10754568

"Guy Saint-Jacques, a former Canadian ambassador to China, said he felt bad for Mr McCallum but said it was the right thing to do.

"What is worse is this is happening in the middle of the crisis when we need all hands on deck," Mr Saint-Jacques said.

He said China would now know that McCallum was not speaking for the Canadian Government.

Mr Trudeau and Ms Freeland have stressed that Canada has an extradition treaty with the US that it must respect."

That goes to my comment about Scheer, he isn't helping, he is just being a backstabbing jerk playing for "points in the game". Scheer should be downplaying any hiccups, not playing silly games that play right into China's hand.
