I am really annoyed at Chinese Consul-General Lu Shumin’s statement that: "This is not the first time that we hear of these allegations (espionage), and it's purely, purely fabrication." Would somebody tell the Chinese boss that it’s not the last time he’ll hear about it either unless they stop their nasty spying on Canadians. It’s high time that the Harper government gets tougher on China regardless of the almighty dollar. Chinese espionage is costing Canadians $1 billion every month—why should we take the loss? It is clear that trading with Communist China offsets the gain!
"This is not the first time that we hear of these allegations, and it's purely, purely fabrication," Ambassador Lu Shumin said at a news conference Friday.
Earlier this week, the National Post newspaper reported about complex espionage tactics at work, ranging from inserting front candidates in Canadian elections to working behind the scenes to sabotage the Falun Gong spiritual movement which has been banned in China.
