China's plan is ultimate world domination. They will do anything to control everything.

They have flooded our markets with cheap products, getting rid of most production in Canada. We even ship our raw lumber there, too expensive to refine it ourselves lol. People now go searching for "made in Canada" to combat this. Only 51% of the manufacturing costs need to be from Canada to make this claim. With new facilities such as this one, they could ship 95% finished product for cheap and add one part from Canada totaling 51% of the manufacture and then claim made in Canada, eroding the label.

Once they have these mega ports, they will be able to complete with their other cheaper competitors more, giving them a monopoly on world trade (even more than they currently have).

Once everything in Canada is from China and we have no ability to create stuff ourselves... We become even earlier to control. The next time we arrest Meng, if they are in a good enough position to cut shipments to Canada, they may use that as a bargaining chip. They were willing to ruin Canadains lives if we didn't release her, you think they are going to play fair with these ports? Ha.

I don't support allowing a country that cencors its population to build this strong of ties with a free country. What message do we send if we don't bargin for ourselves in the deal?


Wow. I'm glad they shared their world domination plan with you, otherwise we would be in the dark.
Why do you think we should have arrested Meng in the first place?

Meng, who also serves as deputy chairperson of Huawei's board, faces "serious charges of fraud involving millions of dollars" in the United States, according to the affidavit of a Canadian law enforcement official. She could receive substantial jail time if convicted, the statement said.
Her arrest was set in motion in August, when a US federal judge signed off on a warrant for her arrest.

Seems to me the US had a reason. Whether or not Canada should have taken part is another issue. Seems the true battle is between China and the USA. If this were the other way around, I would hope the US would detain individuals accused of the same in Canada.

If we're gonna ask dumb hard questions:
Do you belive what China is doing to Hong Kong is right?

I think a better question is , why sell China energy ? That just allows them to become stronger .China already has multiple nukes and ways to deliver them .

I liken it to giving gangs guns and then complaining the gangs use guns to kill people .

We seem to be going off the rails here. The topic is China is paving its "belt and road" to B.C."

Experts call on Canadian universities to close off China's access to sensitive research

https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/china- ... -1.5723846

Justin will not do anything I`m sure.
This is happening around the world with China, get into a country and steal everything you can.
Buy a port, put up buildings for trade and then you control everything coming in or out.

^^^ thanks for more info.

That was a good read, very informative.

Completely goes against PC culture and will be seen as a threat should we start taking action with not allowing China state run business to buy up mega properties or to have students working on sensitive Canadian research.

COMMENTARY: When China gets up to no good, Canada must do more than wag a finger

https://globalnews.ca/news/7335632/chin ... r-warfare/

A whack of documents supplied to some international media over the weekend has provided evidence of China’s attempts to identify westerners — including nearly 4,000 Canadians — who could be attacked through coercive social media or other types of cyber warfare.


Though Ottawa remains more reluctant to do or say anything to upset China than most of its Asian and European allies, to maintain its self-respect it must do more than just wag a finger at Beijing since it was revealed that it was tracking many Canadians, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s daughter and some leading bureaucrats, businessmen and criminals.

Every time someone buys something from China or does business with China, they put just a few more nuts and bolts in a Chinese fighter jet, or a few more ounces of steel on the armour of one of their naval vessels. If anyone has any doubts of who that military buildup and hardware is intended to be used against- it's us....-NATO/ western world countries. They are our enemy, plain and simple... We need to cut them out of everything asap.

It's happening because captain cuckery can't wait to hand it over ... on his knees. Probably crying and apologizing at the same time.

WE's history with Beijing, from endorsements in People's Daily to appearances at Chinese embassy
WE flatly denies having become cozy with Beijing authorities, or that China’s abysmal human-rights record calls into question its involvement in the country

I wonder which Canadian politician opened the door for WE into China.

Found some more info

Known as Hope Bay in Nunavut, Canada and 120 miles north of the Arctic Circle, it is a 50-by-15 mile stretch of property consisting of a 2,000-ton per day gold ore processing plant, air strips, roads, fuel storage facilities, power plants and administrative buildings and a wharf extending half a mile in the now often ice free Arctic Ocean. Negotiations now underway would make it the property of the Peoples’ Republic of China.

Suspicious Canadians see the wharf as capable of being enlarged into a major dock capable of accommodating icebreakers, submarines and surface war ships of the Peoples’ Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) and believe it could become the northern equivalent of Chinese military and economic development in the disputed islands of the South China Sea.

They’ve pointed out that the U.S. Navy recently had to deploy two massive aircraft carrier battle groups in the vicinity of these islands — a major buildup from the usual Freedom of the Seas patrols by individual destroyers — to demonstrate U.S. commitment to international law and to protecting freedom of the seas. Will such shows of force be needed to warn off Chinese territorial ambitions in the Arctic?

Right now, however, the Trudeau government seems more concerned with pondering the potential economic advantages of approving the proposed sale of the property, now owned by TMAC resources, Inc. to China’s Shandong Gold Mining Co.

Shandong, controlled by the Shandong Provincial Government of China, insists it is only interested in TMAC’s commercial potential. “We are a commercial focused company well known in the Canadian mining industry,” argues a company spokesman. “The Canadian government will decide whether to approve this acquisition, but we see it as a straightforward gold-mining transaction.”

Opponents of the deal, beyond those just angry with China because of the recent imprisonment of two Canadian nationals on trumped-up espionage charges, argue that there are huge amounts of natural resources in the region and that resource-hungry China is looking for strategic access to them. They also point out that this mining facility has access to tidewater leading to the Northwest Passage, a sea route connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.

The Hope Bay initiative is obviously part of the Chinese plan for the Arctic now referred to as the Polar Silk Road (PSR), the foundation of the road being the development of enhanced maritime trade through the Arctic Ocean, as well as associated infrastructure and other offshoot projects. And the PSR is clearly part of the far better known Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), accelerated as the Arctic has begun to experience climate change and ice erosion and increasing international commerce throughout the area.

Right now, China may be taking a “watch and wait” approach to linking the Arctic with the Belt and Road. With more than 130 governments and 30 organizations having signed up for various BRI agreements, Beijing’s priorities may be elsewhere at the moment.

A policy document entitled Vision for Maritime Cooperation under the Belt and Road Initiative published in June 2017 identified three specific “blue economic passages” essential for future BRI Chinese maritime trade: The Indian Ocean-Mediterranean route, the Oceania-South Pacific route, and the Arctic Ocean. At the time of the policy’s publication no specific time was give for when the Arctic would be added to the BRI. It appears that the time may have arrived.
