Tucker Carlson: Chinese Communists trained in Canada are ‘threat to American national security’

 'We have the closest relation with Canada of any country, obviously, in the world. This seems like an obvious threat to American national security'

 December 11, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Fox News’ Tucker Carlson said on his Dec. 10 show that revelations this week that the Trudeau government invited Chinese communist troops to learn Canadian ’winter’ warfare is “an amazing story” that was “hard to believe, but real.”

“We have the closest relation with Canada of any country, obviously, in the world. This seems like an obvious threat to American national security,” Carlson commented.

LifeSiteNews reported yesterday that top-secret military documents reveal that under Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s watch, communist troops from China’s Liberation Army (PLA) had been invited to Canada for military “winter survival” training in 2019 at a military base in Ontario.

Documents sent to Rebel News by the Trudeau government via an access to information request also reveal that the Canadian military trained Chinese commanders at the Canadian Forces College in Toronto as well as military facilities in Kingston.

The Department of National Defence confirmed to Toronto Sun’s Joe Warmington yesterday that China’s PLA was, in fact, on Canadian soil in February 2018 for winter training exercises with the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), but that the communist troops were there as a mere “observer.”

During the House of Commons’ Question Period yesterday, Leader of the Conservative Party of Canada and Leader of the Opposition Erin O'Toole questioned the Liberal Government as to why it “fought for Canada to train China's military on Canadian soil, against the direct advice of the chief of the defence staff” after “Canadian citizens [Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor] were taken hostage by the Communist regime in China.”

When Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Chrystia Freeland refused to give a straight answer, O'Toole pushed his question harder.

“Now we learn they [Liberals] were ignoring the Chief of the Defence staff when it came to military exercises with China. Defence officials clearly said there were risks of knowledge transfer by working with China. Why does the Deputy Prime Minister think that she knows better than the military about how to maintain our military secrets?” he asked.

When Freeland punted on the question again, O'Toole pushed his question even further.

“Mr. Speaker, as the Canadian Forces and our allies were warning about the protection of military secrets, documents reveal that the government was more worried about upsetting the Communist regime in Beijing. Every time we ask about China, the Liberals say that national security is a priority, or as the Deputy Prime Minister just demonstrated, they do not answer the question. My question is simple: Why did her department try to overrule the Canadian Armed Forces and force them to train the Chinese military on Canadian soil while our citizens were being imprisoned?”

O'Toole called it “unbelievable” that the Liberal government would pressure the Canadian Armed Forces to conduct joint exercises with the Chinese military while two Canadians had been taken hostage by the “Communist regime in China.”
