The federal Conservatives are pushing the Trudeau government to take action against China and protect Canadians from Chinese intimidation.
Erin O’Toole, Leader of Canada’s Conservatives and the Official Opposition, today released a statement on Trudeau’s alleged inaction on the matter.
“Justin Trudeau’s naive approach to Communist China is still putting Canadians at risk. Tomorrow is the deadline for the Trudeau Liberals to ban Huawei and present a plan to protect Canadians from Chinese intimidation – but we still don’t see any action or certainty for Canadians yet, said O’Toole.
“The Liberal government promised to take action before the last election. More than a year after that election, Conservatives successfully passed measures demanding the Liberal government finally fulfill that promise. Will they fail Canadians a third time?
“Unfortunately, it seems tomorrow the Trudeau Liberals will ignore the importance of standing up to China and protecting Canadians again.
“It’s clear that the Prime Minister doesn’t understand the threat the Chinese Communist Party poses to our nation and our people,” the Conservative leader added.
“How can Justin Trudeau ask Canadians to have trust in their government when all they see is broken promises and inaction?”
