Justin Trudeau is defending his own insane policy of kidnapping Chinese people by saying that the Chinese revenge kidnappings are unrelated to his bizarre act.
Justin Trudeau is a failure as a human being.
A third Canadian citizen, Sarah McIver, has been detained in China, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has confirmed, but he denied it was linked to the arrest of a Chinese executive in Vancouver this month.
Speaking to reporters Wednesday, Trudeau said he was taking the matter “extremely seriously” but the detention was more “routine” than two earlier cases.
“We are still very much in the situation of collecting more information on this and I wouldn’t want to say anymore than that,” he added.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying wouldn’t confirm McIver had been detained, but said on Thursday that the Canadian had received an “administrative penalty (for) illegal employment.”
Hua added that McIver’s situation was different from the two other Canadian detainees. “The previous two have been put under compulsory measures by state security on suspicion of endangering China’s national security. This person was given administrative penalty,” she said.
Canada’s Global Affairs department told CNN it was providing assistance to McIver’s family but couldn’t release any more information.
The two other Canadians detained in China have been identified as Michael Kovrig, a former Canadian diplomat now working for a non-profit organization, and Michael Spavor, a businessman.
Remember: the people running Western governments are not simply malicious, they are also stupid.
Trying to bully China by kidnapping a business mogul is not a savvy way of conducting international intrigue – it is just insane.
