Peter Schweizer Exposes Canadian PM Trudeau’s Deep China Ties

'We know the prime minister's love for the Chinese dictatorship, so what exactly did he promise the Chinese for their million dollar donation? ... '

(John RansomHeadline USA)  A new book by New York Times bestselling author Peter Schweizer says that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has compromised Canada’s security by his family’s ties to communist China that go back decades.

In the book Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win, Schweitzer claims that Pierre Trudeau, Justin’s father, cashed in on his relationship with China after he retired by joining the Power Corporation, a Canadian company that was instrumental in forging commercial relationships with China in the 1970s when the elder Trudeau was Canada’s prime minister, according to a review of the book by Breitbart.

“Trudeau and Desmarais guided Canada’s relationship with Beijing, with Trudeau as prime minister pushing closer relations with the regime while Desmarais cashed in on significant deals with Beijing’s elite,” Schweizer writes.

“When Trudeau retired from politics, he went to work at Power Corporation, further nurturing those deals and becoming wealthy in the process,” he added.

And so the son has plenty of reasons to follow in the footsteps of the father, even if those reasons are only matched by the income the family received from China.

In 2016, Justin Trudeau was accused of hosting “cash-for-access” fundraisers, which included a $1 million donation from Chinese business, Zhang Bin, who was both a billionaire and a communist party member.

“Zhang Bin is a political advisor to the Chinese government, and after attending the event, he and his partner … donated $1 million … including $50,000 to build a statue of the former prime minister,” charged one Canadian MP, according to CBC News.

“We know the prime minister’s love for the Chinese dictatorship,” added the MP, “so what exactly did he promise the Chinese for their million dollar donation?”

In addition to the commercial ties and donations, Justin Trudeau also sold to Beijing the Chinese rights to his book and has never answered the question where the profits went.

“Trudeau’s aides would later explain that all profits from the book were going to the Red Cross,” wrote Schweitzer. “But the Globe and Mail newspaper could not confirm that claim with either the publisher or the Red Cross.”

More to the point, what did China get in exchange for providing the larder for the Trudeau family?

The question was recently answered by Canada’s National Post.

What China got was a compliant partner in Canada that helped China develop bio-weapons at Canada’s National Microbiology Lab; silence from Canada during the Chinese takedown of Hong Kong; and the detention of two former Canadian diplomats who were taken hostage by China when the US demanded the extradition from Canada to the US of Huawei’s CFO over espionage charges, said the National Post.

“There are a lot of things that remain unclear about the Trudeau government’s approach to China, except that the ‘relationship,’ as it is called,” concluded the Post, “requires submitting to abuse, hostage diplomacy, duplicity and humiliation at the feet of Xi Jinping.”

And apparently lots of money for the Trudeaus.
