HillTimes: GTA Liberal MP Tan facing allegations from former staffer and alleged girlfriend of wrongful dismissal, demands child support for two-year-old
Indeed, we really didn't know Tan at all. I'd say someone is suing the pants off him, but the pants appear to have long-ago been removed.
As I said in my earlier post, MP's in trouble have really got to stop using the "spend more time with my family" ruse, because it's a dead giveaway of misbehaviour of one sort or another. And, if they'll lie about that, you have to wonder what other dishonesty they've engaged in.
His failure to see her was not because he was"busy campaigning". He no longer had anything to campaign for except his personal reputation. He handed in his resignation on June 17 and must already have determined he was going to do that as soon as he heard from Ms. Yu's lawyers early this year. It's more likely that he was advised not to talk to Ms. Yu except through his lawyer.
I'm far less likely now to take back my earlier suspicion that he may also be involved in financial shenanigans like the "bare trust" deals because he does seem to be an exploiter of opportunities.
One of the reasons some Chinese have been coming to Canada in fairly recent years is for business and real estate opportunities. Just a few years ago, I personally met a young Chinese woman who made no bones about wanting to "get into business" here. She was bright, personable, and for all I know honest, but the Chinese don't come here for the same reasons that people from war-torn countries do.
One of the reasons there are housing shortages in major Canadian cities, like Vancouver, and now Toronto, is because there are properties intentionally left vacant as their values increase. The purpose is not to make money from renting out properties, but from artificial housing bubbles.
I can't swear to the absolute reliability of all of ZeroHedge's news items, but in this article they are quoting a number of Canadian news sources regarding the housing bubble and the shortage of housing in Vancouver (homes being purchased on spec and left empty), making my "bare trust" suspicions regarding Geng Tan all the more plausible.
And, of course, it isn't only Chinese involved in such deals.
Regarding Tan: It seems I keep coming up with coincidences. For instance, the President of China Southern Airlines is one Mr. Wan Geng Tan. Not necessarily a relative of our esteemed former MP, but you have to wonder about his influential connections.
And guess who went along on parliamentary good will missions to China?
Apparently, Tan felt confident to just pick up the phone and talk to Chinese officials in his role as MP, and without approval. Here's something from 2018 I've just come across:
SpencerFernando/National Citizens Coalition: Trudeau Liberal MP Geng Tan Spoke To Chinese Government On Behalf Of Businessman Arrested For Alleged Fraud
Nor did Tan set a good example as Canada's 1st MP from Chinese mainland (ChinaDaily)
It's sad because the West doesn't need more excuses to be on the outs with both China and Russia, and certainly not to see all Chinese-Canadians as up to no good. No country in the US/China/Russia triangle has the corner on goodness and greatness, and animosity among them is a threat to the whole globe.
Bloomberg: We’re Not Ready for a China-Russia Team-Up
It seems that Bloomberg wants to hope it will end up with Russia against China.
Addendum: Several things from the HillTimes article:
Mr. Tan acknowledges "there was a sperm donation". Knowing that DNA testing could be done, this was a deliberately evasive answer whereby he could (conceivably, pardon the pun) maintain he merely did the woman a favour by donating sperm. Making him out to be just a generous guy, not a lying philanderer.
He also "discouraged her" from seeking psychiatric help for her anxieties, which suggests he is so secretive he doesn't want any professional to know the intimate details.
She was involved in a “real estate and finance business” prior to working for Tan, which supports my suspicion that he too was involved and in an illegal manner - another reason to discourage her from getting psychiatric help because she might reveal something that could later be used against him if court ordered.
