blackbird Posted January 5 Report Share Posted January 5 (edited) Canada has a one-China policy and does not have an official foreign diplomatic post in Taiwan. This should tell us something about the liberal left in Canada and their disastrous foreign affairs. Seems liberals and NDP and possibly other parties to a degree want to have it both ways, support Communist states and free Democratic states. They speak with forked tongue. This has proven a disaster and has placed Canada on the watch list with our traditional allies. This situation of loving Communist countries goes back 53 years or so when PM Pierre Trudeau was the first western leader to lead Canada to officially recognize the People's Republic of China and establish diplomatic relations in 1970. It is well-known the Trudeaus had a fascination with Communist dictatorships and became personal friends with Cuba's Fidel Castro. Why Liberals at large so easily bought into this is a mystery. It may have something to do with Liberals in the 1960s feeling their oats and thinking they somehow could be the great arbitrator of the world's problems. They wholeheartedly rushed in to give all their support to the U.N. and embraced multiculturalism as the be all and end all. They continue down this path and have added progressivism into the mix and rejected our historic Judeo-Christian culture and civilization and our European roots as of any importance. It has been said that key Liberals consider Canada as a "post-national" state. Nationalism is frowned on and Canadians have even been accused of genocide without any basis at all. There seems to be an obsession by liberals (and left) with encouraging national shame for colonizing this part of north America. This liberal left thinking has had dire consequences with nation building and national defence. Canada's armed forces cannot even get people to join because of this progressivism/liberalism deeply embedded in our government departments. They have in effect declared war on our historic traditional values. They are trying to change Canada into some kind of liberal/progressive pagan culture with increasing state control of free speech, beliefs, and society in general. This article elaborates on what is happening: "Determined advocates for a progressive world view work all through government, the bureaucracy, environmental and other non-governmental organizations, academia and the media. They are not an organized cabal — a vast left-wing conspiracy, to paraphrase Hillary Clinton — but they do have overlapping agendas and share the twin convictions that a fundamental reordering of society is needed and that they know best how to achieve it. Proponents include Liberals, progressives, socialists, hard leftists and crypto- marxists who support climate alarmism, globalism, big government, stakeholder capitalism, critical race theory and wokeism. The transformation they seek is already well under way. There’s even the danger that, like the frog sitting in the slowly heating water, the rest of us may realize what has happened only after it is too late. Many environmental organizations, including Greenpeace — which the environment minister, Stephen Guilbeault, belonged to when he scaled the CN Tower — view humans’ impact on the planet as inherently destructive and bad. The declared goal of Stable Planet Alliance is “to stabilize and gradually, steadily reduce population and consumption.” One of the alliance’s members, Population Balance, draws “the connections between pronatalism, human supremacy, and ecological overshoot, and their combined devastating impacts on social, reproductive, ecological, and intergenerational justice.” Actual culling of the population may be a bridge too far, but they are certainly no fans of childbearing."
