Public rates China as #1 threat

“A clear majority, 58%, see China as the biggest threat to Canada,” said a report Attitudes To The Canadian Security Intelligence Service.




What country is considered a more serious threat to Canada than Russia or North Korea? A poll of Canadians say China tops that list, said Blacklock’s Reporter.

“A clear majority, 58%, see China as the biggest threat to Canada,” said a report Attitudes To The Canadian Security Intelligence Service. “It is followed distantly by Russia (18%), North Korea (10%) and Syria (4%).”

“Respondents were asked whether they were more concerned about espionage against classified government information or about economic espionage against Canadian companies,” wrote researchers. “Results reveal somewhat mixed views. Fifty-per cent feel espionage against Canadian companies is more of a concern.”

Findings were based on a phone survey with 1,204 people nationwide. The Security Intelligence Service paid $61,194 for the questionnaire by Ekos Research Associates.

The finding follows May 3 testimony at the Commons Special Committee on Canada-China Relations that MPs must be wide awake to subterfuge by Chinese agents in Canada. “They are very subtle, these activities,” testified Richard Fadden, retired director of the Intelligence Service. “There is no smoking gun.”

“The great difficulty we have in Canada is the general public has trouble understanding that we’re threatened,” said Fadden. “We feel very comfortable here in North America.”

“We have three oceans, we have a border with the United States,” said Fadden. “Sometimes you have to face a crisis before you truly understand there is a problem.”

Fadden said Canadians should beware of Communist Party activities from industrial espionage to influence of legislators. “It’s global,” he said. “They’re after us, if I can use the vernacular, from a whole variety of perspectives. And they’re after us in a negative sort of way.”

David Mulroney, Canadian ambassador to China from 2009 to 2012, earlier testified Canadians were naïve to think “China is our friend.” Mulroney told a 2020 hearing that “dangerous myopia about China” could be found in federal agencies.

“It’s not clear the government has completely given up the fiction that China is our friend,” testified Mulroney. “Nor has it consistently summoned the courage to speak and act with integrity. Powerfully-placed Canadians continue to argue that if we appease China just one more time, all will be well.

“Something is wrong here and it has to change,” said Mulroney.

“People need to remember the ultimate objective of foreign policy is not to flatter, not to obscure inconvenient truths, but to advance and protect Canadian interests and values.”

    Left coast what’s sad is border agents and RCMP have bad cases of blind eyes and full pockets. Maybe if they did their job instead of contributing to the problem, be some hope. And even the few that do, the prosecutors walk step in step with the criminals

    Biggest threat to Canada are Liberal voters, he’s one idiot, there millions of them. How can a country be so clueless. Eastern Canada really must like pain and parting with its money. But hard to feel sorry for people, who keep making the same mistake. May they suffer the most

    Justin Trudeau is the biggest threat to Canada. He doesn’t believe in personal freedoms. He backs the Cuban Totalitarian Regime, He admires the Chinese Basic Dictatorship, these are his words. He has become a massive liability to the Leftist, Globalist, Davos Elites. I don’t think there is time for a “Liberal Leadership Review” before the next election. He is now handing out money to the Canadian Public to buy the next Election, and keeping his mouth shut, Biden Style, so that he doesn’t keep putting his foot in his mouth!

    @ K
    If you have seen the Kissinger comment from the WHO Eugenics gathering in 2009 . . . it is all about the “Plandemic” . . . Created in the Wuhan Lab, funded by Dr. Fauci . . .

    The intent was to release sometime in the mid 2020s . . . but events of 2019 made them rush the release.

    Canada is way down the road of CCP control today, as is New Zealand . . . Australia is fighting back some but they have the same problem.

    The “New World Order” is going to look a lot like the CCP with China in complete control.

    @LEFT COAST I have no doubt, obviously we are taking notes from China. But after seeing how countries reacted in lockstep to limit the freedoms of their citizens for a virus with a 99.97% survival rate, any notion of ‘hostile foreign governments’ doesn’t mean much.

    This is all a game of making ‘them’ look worse than us, while we edge ever closer in the background with our own form of social credit.

    ‘We are all in this together’ is simply a message from TBTB to us, the plebs, as they corral us into vaccinated and unvaccinated camps, establish full spectrum dominance, and create their New World Order.

    @ K . . . China is the biggest threat on the Planet today, period! Justin is their pawn.

    Sam Cooper: Inside the Chinese Communist Party’s Hidden Ties to Canada’s Criminal Underworld
    In Canada, transnational criminals are exploiting government casinos to import deadly narcotics into Canada. And they’re laundering billions of dollars into real estate in Vancouver, the most expensive housing market in all of North America.
    It’s actually about 10 years of my personal reporting in discovering this convergence of the party run out of Beijing, the Communist Party, and how it co-ops and uses, really, any tool at its disposal.

    I knew for years that high-level Western intelligence reports alleged there was this unbelievable connection between state actors in China from the party, some of the most powerful people in the world, and how they interrelate with crime bosses. Especially for people born in a country such as Canada, it’s hard to believe. This is intelligence reporting that, a bit of it gets leaked in Canada, and still, many people can’t believe it.

    But my journey of discovery was really getting into this story through strange real estate happenings in Vancouver. And eventually, I discovered that this underground banking model that people are aware of, Macau Casinos, people are aware that the Chinese Communist Party is very active in Hong Kong. People know of those indications, where the party uses thugs to intimidate democracy protesters in Hong Kong.

    But I was finding that this was happening in Canada. And really, the journey of discovery is Canada, especially the city of Vancouver, has become a global node of the Party’s efforts to infiltrate democratic societies through purchases of real estate, through efforts to get into technology companies in Western nations, through the usage of tycoons, industrialists, that travel the world playing Baccarat. And while they’re playing Baccarat, they’re not just entertaining themselves. They are exporting capital.

    How compromised is Canada? Look, put it this way. When a picture of an organized crime figure and a Chinese state figure donating something like a million dollars to the foundation of our prime minister’s family, the Trudeau Foundation, isn’t proof of wrongdoing with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
    The politicians can and do say, look, that money, there’s no influence there.

    I found it shocking that a Canadian politician’s office was used in a disinformation attack against a Canadian journalist searching for the truth with WeChat as a vector and tool.

    What, no Canada on the list? It looks to me like our government is the #1 threat to our well being. NOT bogeyman China.

    China is certainly the No. 1 threat to Canada and what’s left of the “Free” world.

    But the second biggest threat to Canada is Justin Trudope, the best friend the CCP ever had next to Joe Biden, whose Crime Cartel Family has taken many Millions from the CCP.
    Oddly enough the Bidens got 3.5 Million from the wife of the Moscow Mayor and many Millions from Ukraine & Hunter got 1.5 Billion from the CCP to invest while Joe was VP . . . but no one in the Media or Govt seems to care . . . why is that?
    I remember spending almost 4 years listening to the Media narrative “Russia,Russia,Russia” all based on a Fake Dossier paid for by Hillarious Klinton.

Hundreds of Albertans protest in front of UCP MLA offices over COVID restrictions

So just a few hours after Kenney brought in the new restrictions on Wednesday, ready they were – and about a dozen MLA offices were picketed.




He knew they couldn’t stop the government from bringing in even more COVID-19 restrictions, but Jordon Kosik wanted to be ready to show his displeasure.

Operating two Facebook groups, Holding MLAs Accountable and Closed for Fall, Kosik had his 17,000 members ready to protest just hours after Premier Jason Kenney brought in a fourth COVID-19 lockdown, which this time includes vaccination passports.

“A couple of weeks ago, we knew something was happening,” Kosik said in a Thursday interview with the Western Standard.

“There was nothing we could do to stop it, but what we could do is get ready.”

So just a few hours after Kenney brought in the new restrictions on Wednesday, ready they were – and about a dozen MLA offices were picketed.

Some had a handful of people show up, while others had scores of people.

“This was on organic protest, people in their own ridings,” said Kosik.

And Kovik thinks this won’t be the end of restrictions, with more likely in a couple of weeks.

“To get ready for that we have to network, network, network,” Koik said.

Vancouver gangster killed in daylight shooting

Several news sources said the homicide victim was well-known in Vancouver’s illicit drug trade.




Vancouver cops are on the hunt for an armed killer after a gangster was slain Wednesday during a daylight shooting in Vancouver’s core area.

Amandeep Manj, 35, a known member of the United Nations gang, was shot about 3:30 p.m while sitting inside his car in the parking lot of the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel near Canada Place.

Soon after he bloodied body was discovered, paramedics raced to the lot, but Manj was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said they’re convinced the shooting was a targeted hit.

Several news sources said the homicide victim was well-known in Vancouver’s illicit drug trade.

Manj’s brother, Jodh Manj, also died a violent death three years ago when he was killed while leaving a Mexico City gym.

Vancouver Police Const. Tania Visintin told the Vancouver Sun Manj is the city’s 13th homicide of 2021.

She told the paper officers responded to level three of the parkade near Cordova and Burrard streets “after a man was found unresponsive by a witness.” 

Police have made no arrests in the case, and ask anyone who may have information about the shooting to contact Vancouver police.

COVID vaccines changing their names

The FDA approved new names in the US earlier this summer.




What’s in a name? Plenty, apparently, when it comes to COVID-19 vaccines in Canada.

Health Canada announced Thursday it will accept the change in new brand names of the three most common vaccines Pfizer, Moderna and Oxford-AstraZeneca.

The Moderna vaccine will go by SpikeVax and the AstraZeneca vaccine will be named Vaxzevria.

The Pfizer vaccine will now be called Comirnaty, which the company said represents a combination of the terms COVID-19, mRNA, community, and immunity.

CBC said the vaccines didn’t go by their brand name initially, but now that new and more long-term data has been submitted and approved they will go by their permanent name.

Canada is still expected to receive vials labelled Pfizer-BioNTech for the next several months.

The FDA approved new names in the US earlier this summer.
