Gong Show Redux

Canada accuses Chinese envoy of spying on the homophobic fascist cult the Falun Gong. After having been embarassed by the Chinese government who snubbed a meeting with Harper, now the Harpocrites do a bit of tit for tat. Someone in Foreign Affairs that is a Sinologist should be advising this New Canadian Government that in one fell swoop they are undoing over thirty years of effective foreign relations with China. For the shear arrogance of ideology.

After becoming prime minister in 1968, Mr. Trudeau launched a review of Canadian foreign policy which placed a greater priority on Canada’s relations with the countries of the Asia-Pacific region. This led to the establishment of diplomatic relations with the People's Republic of China in 1970. In 1973, Pierre Trudeau became the first Canadian Prime Minister to visit China. Thursday, October 11, 1973

Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau's visit to China got off to an unusually brisk start yesterday,

Astounded onlookers watch Canada's prime minister ascend the steps of China's Great Hall of Leaders on Nov. 28, 1983. The visit had been kept under wraps. Even the Peking papers haven't written much about Pierre Elliott Trudeau's meeting with Chinese Premier Zhao Ziyang. The two world power figures discuss nuclear disarmament over ornamental pots of Chinese tea. This is not Prime Minister Trudeau's first visit to China.
