Re: “China’s ambassador: why the double standard on justice for Canadians, Chinese?” (The Hill Times, Jan. 9, 2019, p. 11). Can someone inform the Chinese ambassador that his op-ed comes across as transparent propaganda?
The idea that China is a rule-of-law nation is utterly laughable. This is the same country alleged to be running concentration camps for Muslims.
It is obvious that China is on a spree of arbitrarily detaining Canadian citizens in retaliation for the arrest of Meng Wanzhou, known as China’s “princess of Huawei.”
While the company denies it, it seems obvious that Huawei is a tool of the Chinese government, and Reuters has suggested that Skycom, accused of breaking sanctions on Iran, was a directly owned subsidiary run in part by Ms. Meng.
Ambassador Lu Shaye’s attempt to paint this as a race issue is a pathetic display of China’s inferiority complex, which is constantly on display and is cringeworthy.
A bunch of totalitarian adults who may have got caught arrogantly flouting sanctions (though Huawei said when this first came up in 2013 that its business in Iran follows international rules) are now whining and moaning like babies about fairness and the rule of law. They’re a bunch of hypocrites.
I hope my government applies maximum pressure in response to China.
I hope Mr. Lu loses face and is shunned in Ottawa as a result of his slander about Canada. I hope Ms. Meng is frogmarched to the U.S. border in chains for extradition.
