As pressure grows on the Canadian prime minister to explain his inaction on Chinese interference, he blames everyone else except himself.
Justin Trudeau refuses to take responsibility for the fact Conservative MP Michael Chong was not informed about threats to his family by the Chinese government.
In a recent statement to the media, Trudeau pointed the finger at Canada’s spy agency for failing to inform the MP about the danger his family was in.
As reported by the Globe and Mail on Wednesday:
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada’s spy service is responsible for the decision to not inform Conservative MP Michael Chong in 2021 that he and his family were being targeted by the Chinese government after he led an effort for a Parliamentary motion that condemned Beijing’s treatment of Uyghurs as genocide.
The Prime Minister on Wednesday told media he didn’t know about the targeting of Mr. Chong until The Globe and Mail reported Monday on a 2021 top secret assessment by the Canadian Security Intelligence Service.
Whether this is true, or another lie by Canada’s prime minister, is yet to be seen. However, Trudeau has a well-documented history of trying to twist the facts in order to save face.
Conservative Party leader Pierre Poilievre indicated on Tuesday that Trudeau is likely lying.
“For two years, the Trudeau government knew a foreign agent was threatening an MP’s family because the MP voted for human rights,” Poilievre wrote on Twitter.
Trudeau is currently under fire for refusing to expel suspected CCP agent Zhao Wei after the media reported he made threats against Chong’s family in Hong Kong.
