"Victory will never be found by taking the line of least resistance." Winston Churchill

If people no longer expect objectivity from their political and legal systems, then all justice will be reduced to a power struggle between conflicting and irreconcilable perspectives, a struggle in which the most dominant and pervasive bias will replace fair and impartial process as the character of justice. But if objectivity in law and politics is everywhere supplanted by conflict between subjective interests, then the side of economic privilege and established authority will always retain dominance. A society in which people no longer expect representatives of its major institutions even to attempt to render objectivity in their professional demeanours is a society whose major institutions are in a crisis of ethical legitimacy. In such a society, there is wide spread cynicism regarding the possibility of fair political process because it seems impossible that impartial, unbiased dispositions could exist to enact such processes.

CSIS: China controls Canadian Politicians

CSIS warns of threat of foreign takovers

“When foreign companies with ties to foreign intelligence agencies or hostile governments seek to acquire control over strategic sectors of the Canadian economy it can represent a threat to Canadian security interests.”
"I don’t suppose that many of you have not by now heard of FIPA (Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement), the trade deal between Canada and China Stephen Harper is pushing forward - and I don't suppose that many of you, including me, have a full comprehension of what this will mean to trade, not to mention our economy, resources and environment."
  1. It applies to trade agreements between Canada and China and, thanks to the premier, BC as well.
  2. It is, like NAFTA, a treaty that for practical reasons, is all but unbreakable for 31 years.
  3. It gives China the ability to obtain huge damages if we don’t perform our side of any deal and to sue for them in her own courts
  4. This agreement has not been debated in Parliament nor in the Legislature of BC
  5. It won’t be debated in Parliament or the BC Legislature because both the Prime Minister and Premier Clark don’t think they need the agreement of our legislative bodies
  6. Without any question, this treaty will impact upon the Province of British Columbia and could cost us hundreds of millions of dollars
  7. It seriously compromises the constitutional rights BC has under Section 92 of the Constitution Act (1982)
Stories within stories: Harper,why we must stop the Canada-China FIPA and the deal you still don’t really know about.
“On September 26, 2012 (the day after my Island Tides deadline), with no press release or briefing, the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, rose in the House to table a few documents.  It was during a part of every day called “Routine Proceedings.”  The media had sped off for scrums after Question Period.  I was waiting my turn to table petitions.  Maybe another twenty MPs were in the Chamber when Deepak Obhrai tabled a deal with Norway and two with China – the agreement for peaceful use of nuclear energy and the “Agreement between the Government of Canada and the Government of the People’s Republic of China for the Promotion and Reciprocal Protection of Investments” (the Canada-China Investment Treaty). “

 Vancouver City staff consulted with Chinese Government over protest ban bylaw
"Why would we consult with them about our bylaw"

Vancouver city staff consulted with the Chinese government over a proposed bylaw that would prevent Falun Gong protesters from erecting billboards and huts in front of its Granville Street consulate, council was told Thursday.

 "At this juncture in Canadian history, as our federal government signs what was passed off as a run of the mill trade deal with China that is cloaked in so much secrecy, it brings to mind questions as to the motivation for such a move."

" “It’s the same situation as the leftover single women. … It will be the same for the oil sands, they will be outdated just like unmarried single women,”
~ Chen Weidong, Chief Energy Researcher, speaking at the Canada China Forum for energy and the environment in Beijing, in reference to China’s growing frustration over Canada’s delays in approving takeovers and pipeline infrastructure which would allow China to get at our oil sands crude. "
Chinese Regime’s Tactics to Influence Canadian Officials, Corroborating Fadden’s comments  
"He stated that one of the most effective methods used to develop influence over political leaders is to provide them with all-expenses-paid travel to China and lavish entertainment while they are there."

  "In May this year, media reported [1] [2] that the Mayor of Ottawa, Mr. Larry O’Brien, upon return from a business trip to China, refused to proclaim Falun Dafa Day as he had done in previous years because he said he “made a commitment.” It was construed that he made a commitment to Chinese officials during his trip to China."

"A clear example of the mobilization of students by the Chinese embassy occurred right on Parliament Hill on June 24 during Hu Jintao’s visit to Canada. Students, paid and bussed from different cities, appeared to be holding a welcome activity for the Chinese leader, but actually they were there to target other Canadians."

"  First secretary Liu Shaohua from the education department at the Chinese embassy was caught on tape telling Chinese students that they were going into battle against Canadians who sought to bring awareness to the horrific human rights environment in China during Hu’s visit. Yuan Pinghua, another organizer, continued: “Now in a word this is like waging war, so today we are mobilizing for war, having all of you raise your guard.”
" Tape Reveals Embassy Footing Bill for Hu Jintao’s Welcome Rally "  
“You do not talk about it outside, do not talk about it to anyone, except to people in this circle.” - Liu Shaohua, Chinese Embassy Ottawa."

" “Originally, we did not expect the situation to be so complex,” Liu said. “Falun Gong, Tibetan separatists, Uyghur separatists, democracy people have already moved onto Parliament Hill [...] This is a battle that relates to defending the reputation of our motherland. The embassy and authorities inside China have a very high requirement.” "

“For our country this is such little money. In my view this is a struggle, a political struggle.”

" Liu says when Hu visited in 2005 and was met with protesters, officials in China were furious. He complained that during that visit, Canadian authorities did not co-operate with Chinese demands regarding the protesters, but this time he says there were some limited guarantees. “Some parts cannot be guaranteed because this country is particular about so-called freedom. It does not care. It says, ‘we are a free country.’ So we are still negotiating. Falun Gong has already occupied three locations.” "
 The Photo Harper doesn’t want you to see “At last night’s dinner in Ottawa in honour of President Hu, from left to right, Andre Desmarais, president and co-Chair of the Power Corporation Board of Directors…who has contributed greatly to the strengthening of China-Canada relations, Hu Jintao and the Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper.”

"In spite of Globe and Mail hide-the-picture hype, the real story here is how the Canadian government allows the censorship of the out-of-line Chinese Embassy who, at the end of the day, successfully banned the Epoch Times and New Tang Dynasty from the coverage of last night’s press conference."
