Letter: Beijing's TV channels don't belong in Canada

Re: Now is Harper's chance to defend the rights of the Falun Gong, Jan. 12

Daphne Bramham is right on the mark. The Harper government will have to walk the walk, won't it?

And it should. The nine Communist channels don't belong in a democratic country. This subtle infiltration appears benign on the surface, but in reality it is not so -- the evidence confirms that it's abusive.

Groups like the Falun Gong have all the right to oppose CRTC's decision. The Japanese and Taiwanese people have also been targeted by those Beijing state-controlled channels where hate is spread as if it were a natural thing to do.

Let it be said that Canadians cherish higher values of freedom and democracy.

It's high time Canada put a halt to Communist infiltration and this is a good place to start.
