EDITORIAL – How Kamloops can help stop China from bullying Canada

Robert Lloyd Schellenberg on Chinese television.

An editorial by Mel Rothenburger.

I’VE ALWAYS BELIEVED that the most effective form of diplomacy takes place between regular folks far from the halls of power.

It’s time to put some of that diplomacy to work.

A Canadian has been sentenced to death in China. Two other Canadians are under detention for reasons that aren’t clear. The Chinese ambassador accuses Canada of “white supremacy.”

Canadians are under a travel advisory warning of the risks of travel to China.

  1. Someone is supplying fentanyl that is killing innocent people in Canada. Canada is also being left with many brain-injured victims as well from fentanyl.

    Perhaps this is a matter of taking the plank out of an eye before removing the spec from someone else’s.
