I just plugged this into Google via copy and paste.

up to a dozen seats in heavily Chinese-Canadian areas may have been lost to the Conservatives due to Chinese-language efforts by pro-Beijing groups

Interesting?

So just maybe the Tories need to create a platform that appeals to Chinese-Canadian districts if they want to win seats there. The only thing I can remember about their campaign is that they did not want me to vote liberal. What they should have done is tell me why I should vote for them.

For the record, it isn’t only Conservative supporters who are concerned about China’s influence in Canada

Canada’s intelligence agencies have taken the rare step of naming China as a significant threat to the country’s sovereignty, with CSIS director David Vigneault publicly saying in a February 2021 speech that Canadians are being “aggressively” targeted by foreign interests – and Beijing was engaged in “activities that are a direct threat to our national security and sovereignty.”
Well, that chilled my aperitif to perfection.

When will it be plain enough for all to acknowledge that China is NOT our friend.?

Hear our CSIS ringing alarm bells?

China not being our friend hasn’t been the question. "Chinese commies handing Liberals 12 seats" is the question.

Whining about losing an election, insisting the winner actually lost, and bringing unsubstantiated claims about foreign interference causing a win for the liberals in 12 ridings is about as Trumpist as one can get.

Some idiots can’t put two and two together and arrive at the simple fact that the nutcase faction of their claimed political party is both where they reside and is the reason for the loss. It’s a head shaker.

While I have continued to look for information on the "transcendent twelve" the ridings that changed the election, I found this interesting article. It basically outlines the "grumbles" related to the election. I have not been able to identify the transcendent twelve but this article did outline a relevant change in the CPC voting pattern in this election.

https://nationalpost.com/news/politics/ ... s-election

DATA NERD
Noted Alberta politics nerd Paul Fairie charted how the provincial share of the Tory vote changed in 2021 as compared to 2019. He found that Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic Canada all turned out in greater numbers for the Tories, while the party lost support across Western Canada. The effect was most dramatic in Alberta. Although the Conservatives retained a solid blue wall of seats in Wild Rose Country, their share of the vote plunged by a dramatic 13 per cent.

Like many things that don’t entirely make sense to the rest of the country, Monday’s Liberal victory can be blamed almost entirely on Toronto. Redditor garry-oak did an analysis of how Canadian metro areas voted in the 2021 election, and found that Toronto was the most Liberal city in Canada, with nearly 50 per cent of its vote share going to Team Red. The Liberals swept almost all of the 50 ridings in the Greater Toronto Area, making the city the core of their 158-seat caucus. The most NDP city was Victoria, and Regina ranked as the most Conservative.


According to 2019 statistics the five metropolitan areas with the largest Chinese Canadian populations are the Greater Toronto Area (631,050), Metro Vancouver (474,655), Greater Montreal (89,400), and the Calgary Region (89,675). If we are to believe that there was significant CPC disruption in these areas, which contain ridings with large Chinese/Canadian population then the observations of The Nerd are contradictory. Tory/CPC support increased in Ontario, and Quebec, areas with high Chinese/Canadian populations. While the CPC lost,support in western Canada. There they lost 13% support mainly to parties which were farther to the right.

The Liberals winning 50% of the GTA ridings indicates that the CPC platform did not register with urban votes and this is in a province with a strong conservative provincial government. The CPC GTA results cannot be to attributed foreign interference. However, if anyone can help me find the transcendent twelve ridings, perhaps we can clearly put the election question to rest. If there is anything more to this accusation than anecdotal reports and partisan complaining, I would expect that within the next two weeks, the RCMP would make an announcement. If there is no announcement, then you know the extent of the "actual" foreign influence.

For comparison I'm going though seat count stories on the net and so far I have yet to see where the Liberals gained 12 seats over what they had at dissolution.

Help me please?

Thanks.

Gee, a conspiracy thread worthy of Trump himself is created and the OP can’t even support it by answering the simplest of questions.

So unCanadian, so undemocratic, so evil. Just yuck.

I guess it just falls under the guise of "hey, just asking questions".......the watch phrase of conspiracy theorists everywhere.

I wouldn’t be at all surprised by any actions CCP does at home or on international stage, meanwhile trying to always come up smelling like roses.

Far to many people buy into that latter part to easily (incredibly gullible).
