So the government doesn't want to have to go through a judge to detain people on behalf of the Communist Chinese. If this was 30 years ago and the government was meeting Soviet agents behind the publics back for the purposes of arranging extra judicial deportation to the gulags, there would have been a great national outrage. In 1939 what would have happened if it was discovered that the government had aided Nazi agents apprehend and deport people from Canada? Our country is under the influence of foreign dictators. 1) don't work with commies 2) don't bypass judicial warrants
You have to ask yourself what kind of a world do you want. Do you want a world controlled by totalitarian thugs?
The objective of the free world should be to create a world governed by compassion.
Or at least insulate ourselves in well defended freedom zones where tyrants have no reach.
" OTTAWA – Legal experts are raising red flags about “disguised extraditions” after a letter obtained by Global News shows Canadian border officials met with their Chinese counterparts to discuss what to do with fugitives sought by the communist country.
“CBSA is using deportation as disguised extradition,” said Audrey Macklin, a law professor at the University of Toronto. “Essentially China is recruiting Canada to do its dirty work for it and circumventing extradition. This does not look good on CBSA or Canada.”
Extradition normally requires a country to formally request that Canada return an alleged fugitive – a decision that is made by the federal justice minister and an extradition judge.
Immigration lawyer Lorne Waldman has seen firsthand the reliability of Chinese investigators. He cross-examined one who was brought to Canada to testify at an immigration hearing.
On the stand, the Chinese official denied the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre even though reports put the death toll in the hundreds and some in the thousands.
“Extradition puts stricter requirements on the state who is requesting extradition that it has evidence that is capable or constituting genuine criminal offence and the process it uses both to get evidence and to try an individual charged with a criminal offence meets basic human rights and fairness standards,” "
" The case snowballed and eventually ended up in federal court where the company was forced to release documents related to permits granted for 201 workers it planned to bring to the project from China.
Such permits require proof the company tried unsuccessfully to find Canadians for the positions and the released documents included the resumes of 300 Canadians who applied for the jobs but were not hired.
The United Steelworkers union is accusing the provincial government of misleading the public about investigating allegations Chinese miners are paying money to work in Canada.
In the letter, Deputy Minister of Tourism, Jobs and Skills Training Dave Byng said it completed its investigation into the allegations in November 2012 and found no evidence B.C.-based companies were charging fees.
In the original report by The Tyee the company found to be charging the miners, Canada CIBS Investment and Trade Group, said on its Chinese website it was a Vancouver-based company. "

"In a scene reminiscent of last spring's student protests, lines of riot police were used to break up the crowd and protesters who were arrested were held on city buses.
Just like a day earlier, authorities declared the demonstration illegal as soon as it began because no protest route had been given beforehand.
The protesters, many wearing the red square associated with the student movement, said they are opposed to plans for new mining projects in northern Quebec.
"We want to keep our resources and protect the environment and the resources that we have belong first and foremost to aboriginal people," she said.
"We want sustainable development," she said.
"We want development that's respectful of the environment and communities." "
Organ Harvesting in China Addressed in Canada's Parliament
" Back in 1985, our trade deficit with China was approximately 6 million dollars (million with a little "m") for the entire year.
In 2012, our trade deficit with China was 315 billion dollars. That was the largest trade deficit that one nation has had with another nation in the history of the world.
In particular, our trade with China is extremely unbalanced. Today, U.S. consumers spend approximately 4 dollars on goods and services from China for every one dollar that Chinese consumers spend on goods and services from the United States.
But isn't getting cheap stuff from China good?
No, because it costs us good paying jobs.
According to the Economic Policy Institute, the United States is losing half a million jobs to China every single year.
Overall, more than 56,000 manufacturing facilities in the United States have been shut down since 2001. During 2010, manufacturing facilities in the United States were shutting down at a rate of 23 per day. How can anyone say that "things are getting better" when our economic infrastructure is being absolutely gutted? "
" We did it! The Conservative government has killed online spying legislation Bill C-30! If passed, the bill would have provided access to your private online information without a warrant, and you would have had to pay for it. "
The government deserves some respect for backing down on this one.
Now only if they would stop working so closely with the communist regime.
The communists are not good for the worlds people, they will bring only deception and slavery.

"Bill C-55, originally part of the internet surveillance legislation, was not scrapped along with the rest of the bill. It would give the police the right to secretly intercept private communications without a warrant. Their only obligation would be to notify affected parties after the fact."
Allow it for counter intelligence from foreign threats, but get a warrant otherwise. Read Orwell.
We can defend ourselves from the enemy without becoming them.
" These activities cost us in privacy and they add new costs to our Internet services. These costs will grow substantially if Canada doesn't oppose the Trans Pacific Partnership's (TPP) new Internet restrictions during negotiations (Canada is bound by the outcome of the TPP agreement). "
" Perhaps the most surprising demand from business groups is an expansive exception to a new requirement to obtain express consent prior to the installation of computer software. The groups have asked the government to delay implementation of this rule indefinitely. Alternatively, they are seeking at least ten additional exceptions, including one that would permit surreptitious surveillance for private enforcement purposes. "
