MillenniumReport (Dec. 2018): Canada Arrested Chinese CFO for Trump Admin
Whatever one might make of the rest of this long report, the following paragraph may well explain the Huawei CFO's arrest:
Jeffrey Sachs, in a CBC article, agrees that Canada is "abetting the US" in its attempt to create another cold war, this time with China.
Not really surprising, since Global News carried this headline back in October:
U.S. senators urge Justin Trudeau to drop China’s Huawei from Canada’s upcoming 5G network
If Canadians haven't taken it for granted that there is no real privacy left on the globe, it's time they did and governed themselves accordingly. This whole Huawei thing is a tempest in a teapot, a cover for actions against China and Russia yet to come, but in no way a safeguard for Internet privacy.
Yeah, our system is better; our government is ruled by the very corporations that have entwined themselves with Huawei. In fact, The Business Council of Canada (formerly the Council of Chief Executives) has announced in its Annual Report that it has "Global Ambitions".
Similar concerns were floated by ITWorld-Canada back in Sept. 2018:
Controversy erupts over Five Eyes countries’ statement on encryption
Typical that Canada's leadership chose to obfuscate:
ItWorld then directs us to Canada's "Statement of Principles on Access to Evidence and Encryption", which - oops - appears to have been sent out to the laundry.
The CBC said in Oct. 2018: Five Eyes intelligence alliance builds coalition to counter China
About that "informal expansion": it's actually existed for quite some time. In fact it's common to read "6 eyes" these days, Israel being number 6 -- or maybe even number one in priority, especially considering its intense interest in high tech.
Strangely, however, this is the toppest secret of them all, since even in some expansions to 9 eyes and 14 eyes, Israel is not mentioned. Now that's encryption!
Back to the CBC:
And this is supposed to be news? It's merely the usual obsession with Russia and China! Both countries are thriving after overcoming seriously hard times, and are now a major feature on the globe. Unfortunately, the weaker and messier the EU, UK and US become, the more they demand the right to dominate.
As the MillenniumReport further states:
And the CBC article continues:
It's a bit humorous the way Russia and China are considered "authoritarian" considering the heavy hand of the US powers behind the throne. We westerners live in a mere illusion of democracy.
I can't help wondering about the overall character of an "official" who gives away sensitive information anonymously while: "All the governments involved, including Germany and Japan, declined to comment". What else are they up to when no one's looking? The media certainly make hay from what they whisper, but what can we really assume from mere innuendo?
One thing is made all too clear by the above-quoted Millennium Report:
So much, presumably, for Freeland's earlier expressed hope for Canadian sales of planes to Iran? That was back in early 2018, and not a murmur has been heard about the outcome. Is this a subject too hot to handle even by "unnamed sources"?
FinancialPost: Bombardier won't confirm a report saying it sold 10 CRJ900 jets to Iran
Well, whatever came down in the end, Bibi Netanyahu is giddy with joy that it's over:
NationalPost: Israel has Canada's 'unwavering and ironclad' support [says Canada's Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland]
Meanwhile, in the same NatPost article, Freeland gives Canadians the impression her reason for shunning Iran is that it won't allow a certain woman to emigrate to Canada.
Apparently, Freeland has found differing pegs on which to hang Canada's back-turn on Iran. But which is the truth? Tender love for Israel, feminist human rights, or obedience to US dictates?
