Scheer: Trudeau hurt China relations with Lavscam
Mississauga — conservative Leader andrew scheer told a roundtable of journalists from ethnic media outlets that Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau caused further damage to canada’s standing with china following the snclavalin affair.
scheer made the argument Tuesday as he fielded questions — including several on canada’s strained relationship with china — from a couple of dozen journalists in suburban Toronto.
canada has been in a diplomatic dispute with china since the arrest last december of huawei executive Meng Wanzhou in Vancouver on an extradition request from the united states.
In the days that followed, china detained two canadians on espionage allegations, moves that Trudeau has called “arbitrary.” china has also rejected key canadian imports, including canola and pork.
scheer tried to draw connections Tuesday among the china-canada dispute, the Meng case and a controversy that engulfed Trudeau’s government earlier this year. “I believe that Trudeau really did weaken our position with china as it relates to the snclavalin scandal,” scheer said .
