Movie idea: Canada-based Chinese “scientists” fired after sending viruses to Wuhan China virus lab but we don’t know why, or something

Canada Excluded From International China Security Pact

Globe and Mail Dismissed by Justin Trudeau as merely a crass American salesman's move to pawn off the latest high-tech US-built nuclear subs to what we have to therefore assume he thinks are the total idiot Aussies, the three-nation deal didn't even include Canada in the talks leading up to the historic pact. And after Trudeau's comments on the matter (and the aforementioned attitude toward the Aussies), you can understand why.
"Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Thursday played down Canada’s exclusion from the Indo-Pacific security deal, saying it is merely a way for the U.S. to sell nuclear submarines to Australia ... “This is a deal for nuclear submarines, which Canada is not currently or any time soon in the market for. Australia is.”"
In a clear indication that even Trudeau's political bro Joe Biden doesn't actually take him or Canada seriously anymore (forcing one to wonder if his high-fivin' bro Barack Obama doesn't also come off as a bit two-faced after Obama gave Trudeau a campaign "endorsement" this week), even Canadian officials were left in the dark. Almost like Canada can't even be trusted anymore on any level.

"Three officials, representing Canada’s foreign affairs, intelligence and defence departments, told The Globe and Mail that Ottawa was not consulted about the pact, and had no idea the trilateral security announcement was coming until it was made on Wednesday by U.S. President Joe Biden, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison."

Trudeau, in contrast, delayed Canada's Wuhan Virus immunization program by signing a deal not with the Americans or Brits, but with... CHINA, for vaccines, in what turned out to be a total failure with countless Canadian lives lost as a result. What is going on here?

And the science SAYSSS…

National Post —Move over Donald Trump. In their NP Platformed email available to subscribers, columnist Sabrina Maddeaux calmly explains that Justin Trudeau's recent uncontrolled angry outbursts — one at a citizen who was rude, and one at a reporter who dared challenge him with actual reporter-like questions — provides a clue as to his baser instincts. And if you saw these outbursts, you'd agree, it isn't a good look for him or any normal human. But moreover, it's a terrible look for anyone claiming the title of Prime Minister. But it's this new line of anti-science, pure crass political campaign bullshit that has me riled:
"...At a weekend rally in Oakville, Ont., Trudeau revealed his hand when he claimed that, “If you want this pandemic to end, go out and vote Liberal.” He repeated the message again, even turning it up a notch, in Surrey, B.C., on Monday, saying, “If you want this pandemic to end for good, go out and vote Liberal!”
"This is the ultimate false promise by a politician who’s become infamous for making false promises. No one can guarantee he will be able to end the pandemic. In fact, the expert consensus seems to be that there will be no real end to it: the virus will become endemic and we will be forced to live with it, albeit hopefully more normally. ..."
So it's "follow the science," and "the science says... to vote Liberal”? Many, especially the media, would dismiss "bible belt" politicians who insinuated that "God wants you to vote [whatever way].  This blowhard — and his disciples — should be treated no differently.

Inflation races higher in Canada — another new emergent threat to any economic recovery

Globe and Mail — They're reporting that Canada’s inflation rate jumps to 4.1%, fastest pace since 2003, sending shockwaves to almost nobody in the news media ahead of the stupid election. For example, the state-owned CBC "news media" division of the Trudeau Liberals reports it as their news item number seven or eight from the top. The G&M, as if explaining it to the CBC, wrote:
"The Statscan report arrives just five days before a federal election that’s seen affordability emerge as a key theme on the campaign trail, with all major parties pitching ideas to rein in a variety of costs, including for housing, child care and wireless plans..."
The cost of "wireless plans" is something like priority number 18,539 for me and 99% of the country, but Jagmeet Singh and the NDP — and therefore their loyal media at every opportunity — make out like it's more important than... I don't know.... inflation at 4% and Canada falling out of the economic freedom top ten... to say nothing of trillion-dollar debts and out-of-control budgets, and that thing about the end of our freedom of speech 'n junk like that. But ma wireless plan!!%#

Not “election news,” apparently: Canada drops out of top 10 countries in annual economic freedom report

Fraser Institute — In a sane land with actual journalism, this would be front-page news, one week ahead of an election. "In this year’s report, Canada ranks 14th based on 2019 data, the most recent comprehensive data, part of a downward trend since 2016. (Last year, Canada initially ranked 8th, although data revisions later lowered its rank to 13th.)"
“Due to higher taxes and increased regulation in Ottawa and the provinces, Canadians are less economically free, which means slower economic growth and less investment in Canada,” said Fred McMahon, Dr. Michael A. Walker Research Chair in Economic Freedom at the Fraser Institute.
Economic Freedom of the World: 2021 Annual Report is the world's premier measurement of economic freedom, ranking countries based on five areas—size of government [Canada: 111th], legal structure and property rights, access to sound money, freedom to trade internationally, regulation of credit, labour and business. In this year's report, which compares 165 countries and territories, Hong Kong is again number one—although China's heavy hand will likely lower Hong Kong's ranking in future years—and Canada (14th) trails the United States (6th).

Why isn’t this the biggest story in Canada?

National Review — "Why Isn’t the Attack on Larry Elder the Biggest Story in America?"  Their sub-head put it exactly right:
"A white woman in a gorilla mask threw an egg at a black man seeking to become the first non-white governor of our largest state, and the media shrug."
And they begin their story much as I have over the years: "Do a search for “Larry Elder” and gorilla on the CNN website and nothing comes up. Washington Post? Zilch. Nothing comes up on the New York Times site either..." — only replace those outfits with CBC, CTV, Global, Globe & Mail, etc.
In case you're stupid, let me fill you in: Larry Elder is a black man, but moreover, and in fact almost entirely over, he is a conservative man of considerable intellect and conscience. A Republican.
Indeed, in Canada, wherein they talk endlessly about evvvvvvery instance of "racism" in America in their activist effort to have it spill over into Canada and create divisions here to help fulfill their political ends, they utterly ignored this overt racism doozy. Why? Because they're hypocritical, dishonest, ideological, political... anything but journalists. They should all be ashamed of themselves. But I bet they aren't.
And yet they are so self-assured and arrogant that despite their obvious corruption, which they don't even care if you notice, they continue to demand and accept YOUR taxpayer handouts.

WE: The liberals’, the Liberals’, and Trudeau’s shame —documented in 4-part podcast

The Podcastosphere — I've listened to four parts of the well-done series titled "The White Saviors," narrated by Olusola Adeogun. There will be one more episode. The series documents the "cult" — yes, cult is the word used by an interviewee who worked for them — that is the liberals' own WE organization. I always thought of this WE group as cult-y, and corrupt, and as phony as a Liberal or NDP campaign promise, and as a leftist brainwashing center of bullshittery, but now, more so. Including, or especially because of, Justin Trudeau's participation in it. And the news media's love of it. And Big Public Education's embrace of it. And all of that combined.
The podcast is well described as "the exclusive story of a charity that did well when it was supposed to be doing good."
Produced by Canadaland, which has been on it for years, and arguably broke the story of WE and Liberal Party corruption in 2020.

Biden’s poll numbers are too embarrassing for the “news” media — I bring you the numbers because the others won't. The "news" media only bring you the news they want you to know, filtered through their very special way of telling it to you — because as you know, they're not really a "news media" at all. Therefore, Biden being increasingly underwater, as demonstrated by the scientific data that the news media studiously refuses to follow at, is ignored. They are lying through omission.

We won’t “get thru this together,” any more, boyfriend.

Globe and Mail — The Liberals' Globe and Mail division sounded off today on none other than their hero, liberalism's fancy-socked neo-liberal, The Right Woke Justin Trudeau. Seems the marriage is off.
"...We will never find comfort in the Liberal Leader’s corrupted line that we will “get through this together.” He doesn’t mean it. Only certain people matter to Mr. Trudeau – the ones he uses to prosecute identity politics for the singular purpose of furthering his destiny. ..."
The G&M, in a historic fashion reminiscent of the Maclean's revelation of two years ago, suddenly wakes up to discover that the Emperor wears no clothes; or at least those he does wear are just butt-ugly, overly showy, and of poor — possibly Fabrique en Chine —quality. He is, in fact, Right Woke, as I've been saying. And thus, the G&M finally seems to have woken up. Good morning.

The Article

This story is intriguing mostly by virtue of its exposure of the nation’s burgeoning bureaucratic state (burgeoning not just in size, but in its power and control) — or what some would credibly refer to as the Canadian “deep state.” Also, China. Wuhan, China. And global diseases. And possibly, spies.

And not that this has anything to do with Bill C-10, but hey Guilbeault, you want more forced “Canadian content” (like they do in China with Chinese content by pure coincidence!)? Here’s a political spy thriller that’s right on point. It also involves science, which you all keep saying you like “to follow!” Maybe a producer (besides the state-owned CBC because, ridiculous) could pick this up and run with it (without Canadian Heritage Department funds, presumably, but also the producers would probably have to do without China’s financial aid and or any play in China’s state-owned movie theaters).

This particular politburo, the National Health Agency of Canada (NHAC — the “HAC” part is merely another fun coincidence) has been made famous by the Wuhan Virus (which some people call “COVID-19” for some weird reason, possibly nefarious). This agency is best known for its leadership, including the worse than useless Liberal TV star Patty Hajdu, who is Minister of Health for some weird reason, and the inimitable TV star Dr. Theresa Tam, who plays serves as Chief Public Health Officer. Its President (yup, there’s one of those, too) is Iain Stewart, appointed just last September after the previous president quit for some weird reason right in the middle of a pandemic. They also have an Eric Morrissette, who is cast as chief of media relations, in case that helps you understand the size, the breadth, the scope —the depth of the state, as it were. A cast of thousands.

Reporter Robert Fife (it’s always Robert Fife) from the Liberals’ Globe and Mail division uncovered the story today (this is what is known in political hack circles and in the movies as “awkward” for them and their entire liberal media messaging cohort), and is, as I said intriguing. It seems the NHAC division is refusing to deliver unredacted documents to, well, us, the people (as represented by our MPs), for whom they work, and to whom they ultimately report —and to whom they are obliged to answer on account of the fact that we’re not communists and we’re not run by a tyrannical dictatorship led by Health Ministry Commissars (or in Soviet-speak, the Russian “комиссáр.”) Or so we are to believe.

MPs (particularly Conservative MPs) want documents because CSIS, Canada’s secret spy agency, advised the NHAC to strip those two Chinese “scientists” of their Winnipeg virus lab’s security credentials for some weird reason in 2019, and then they and an unknown number of their very own Chinese “students” who were also working in that lab for some weird reason, were escorted out of the lab.

(I assume they are all Chinese because the state-owned CBC in a headline referred to them as “Chinese researchers“. Then again, upon my review of CBC articles about this, I find the CBC first called them “Chinese researchers,” then in their next article they sort of flipped the coin and referred to them as “Canadian scientists,” then, finally in February, they called then merely “Scientists.” All by the same reporter. They are either clueless, beholden to the “woke” set and afraid to be called “racists” if they acknowledge they are Chinese, or they are simply gaslighting us with BS. What we do know is that they came from China, as did their students.)

And the RCMP are also investigating the circumstances around the January 2021 firing of those same two NHAC “scientists,” a roll which I put in quotes because I, and maybe some CSIS members, RCMP members, and MPs too, question if that was actually their and their students’ real role, rather than something a lot more nefarious, like spying for China, as if I had to tell you. And shipping viruses to Wuhan, China (which they actually, seriously did!), specifically to the now infamous Wuhan Institute of Virology for that lab’s own “study” purposes, back in 2019 — before the Wuhan Virus was released into Canada and other places. But the NHAC president (no, not the media guy who is paid to do nothing, apparently) says that virus shipment has nuttin’ to do with nuttin’. Or as they say it in China, “Zhè yǔ rènhé shìqíng dōu méiyǒu guānxì” or “這與任何事情都沒有關係.”

Amir Attaran, a law professor and epidemiologist at the University of Ottawa, said in June of last year,

“We have a researcher who was removed by the RCMP from the highest security laboratory that Canada has for reasons that government is unwilling to disclose. The intelligence remains secret. But what we know is that before she was removed, she sent one of the deadliest viruses on Earth, and multiple varieties of it to maximize the genetic diversity and maximize what experimenters in China could do with it, to a laboratory in China that does dangerous gain of function experiments. And that has links to the Chinese military.”

Yeah sure, you can go ahead and re-read all that if you’re having trouble believing this kind of shit actually goes down in Canada. Here’s part of the G&M report today:

…In January of this year, Xiangguo Qiu, who headed the Vaccine Development and Antiviral Therapies Section, and her biologist husband, Keding Cheng, were fired from their positions with the National Microbiology Laboratory (NML) in Winnipeg.

The couple and an unknown number of Dr. Qiu’s students had their security access revoked in July, 2019, and were escorted from the Winnipeg lab, a Level 4 facility equipped to handle some of the world’s deadliest diseases. Four months earlier, the Winnipeg lab had shipped Ebola and Henipah viruses to the Wuhan facility, part of what the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) later described as an effort by this country to “foster global collaboration.”

A federal source – with direct knowledge of the case – said the Canadian Security Intelligence Service began raising alarms after it grew concerned about the nature of information that was being passed to the Wuhan lab. The source said CSIS was focused on the people that Dr. Qiu was talking to in China and intellectual property that may have been given to Chinese authorities. …

But this conclusion to the G&M’s reporting also really caught my eye and would add some extra punch to the movie version, or maybe a sequel! It seems to indicate an impending explosion over this within the ranks of the Liberal Party and its multiple, beloved, bureaucratic behemoths, with some finger-pointing, finger wagging, possibly misplaced advice, denials, or assumption of any sort of responsibility! What an unusual plot twist!

…Robert Oliphant, the parliamentary secretary to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, took pains to distance the dispute from the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.

“This has nothing to do with coronavirus,” Mr. Oliphant told the committee [House of Commons special committee on Canada-China Relations].

He also cautioned the Public Health Agency to review the legal advice it is getting.

“I think you need a second opinion. I think the Justice Department is not giving you the best advice,” he said.

So to recap, the Minister of Foreign Affairs division of the massive government is advising that the Public Health Agency division is not getting good legal advise from the Justice Department division, which all stems from an investigation by the CSIS spy division, and is being investigated by the RCMP division; concerning taxpayer-funded information about possible breaches of national security protocols, in a taxpayer-funded lab by two taxpayer-funded “scientists” who engaged in state-funded research, possibly leading to outcomes with enormous national security implications, maybe even global ramifications, and the agency’s refusal to share any of that information with the lowly people of the country who own all of this, even through their taxpayer-funded representatives, in secret. The only winner here seems to be Communist China. Weird.

Maybe Justin Trudeau is right: maybe China does have a better system of government worthy of his great “admiration” of “their basic dictatorship.” (Luckily the role of Trudeau could be played by Trudeau, given his acting experience.)
