Some Canadian Politicians good, some bad, some desperate for Chinese money

“I think everybody’s aware that there has been a bit of testiness in the Canada-China relationship in the last couple of years. There’s been some differences of view on human rights issues. Our government has been quite open about expressing those views.”

He said the two countries are now “engaging in ways that will enable us to continue to express our differences of view but assure that the relationship continue to get stronger.”

Emerson’s comments come as more than 80 world leaders and royals gather in Beijing for Friday’s opening ceremony, including U.S. President George W. Bush.

But noticeably absent from that crowd is Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who has insisted he would not attend because of a scheduling conflict.

He is among a very small group of world leaders, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Spain’s King Juan Carlos, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, who will not attend the opening.

Emerson denied Harper was deliberately sending China a message. But then he raised the human rights issue again.

“I don’t think it is a snub at all,” he said. “I think Canada has been clear for as long as I have been in government that we would like to see democracy and human rights continue to strengthen in China.

Irwin Cotler is very sincere and caring, he really actually is cool and good. Mr. Emerson on the other hand is making me really sick. The desperation to exploit two different faces looking at China.  He seems that he really wants get the CCP dirty money, but he knows that it’s not kosher to just sell his soul, so he is playing both sides.  He is speaking about human rights while trying to appease the criminals.  Hopefully there is more to this than I am seeing.

  1. Unfortunately, China is the only country that suggests employ traditional medicine for the poor’s primary health care, which is otherwise done by conventional medicine throughout the rest of the world. When I unveiled this fact, the people in China began suspecting their government. The people asked that if traditional Chinese medicine is compatible with conventional medicine, how come other countries refuse to recognize it?

    Over the past sixty years, the Chinese government has been making the mistake of dual endorsement of conventional and traditional medicine. Now, in an attempt to cover up, the government calls for traditional Chinese medicine to join the rest of the world. With the help of the head of the WHO, Mrs. Chen, a Hong Kong native, the WHO announced the Beijing Declaration after a conference in Beijing in November 2008, which subscribed to the backwards situation in China.

    The above extract is from William Wang’s article “In the Beijing Declaration, the WHO devalues a human right for the poor by endorsing traditional medicine.”. You can find and read the complete article at http://www.humanrightsdefence.org.

    Yours sincerely,

    Tomas
