Keeping an eye on Communist, Totalitarian China, and its influence both globally, and we as Canadians. I have come to the opinion that we are rarely privy to truth regarding the real goal, the agenda of Red China, and it's implications for Canada [and North America as a whole]. No more can we rely on our media as more and more information on China is actively being swept under the carpet - not for consumption.

Beijing Denies Dangerous Interception of U.S. Spy Plane Over South China Sea
Beijing Denies Dangerous Interception
of U.S. Spy Plane Over South China Sea
May 20, 2016
China criticized Washington for deploying a U.S. reconnaissance plane near Chinese territory, but denied a Pentagon account that Chinese jet fighters conducted a risky close-range interception—the latest spat between the powers that fueled concern over the growing risks of accidental military clashes. As WSJ’s Chun Han Wong reports:
Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said Thursday that the Chinese jets maintained a “safe distance” while intercepting the U.S. aircraft over the South China Sea on Tuesday. Speaking at a routine briefing, Mr. Hong urged Washington to stop such “close-in reconnaissance activities,” saying they pose a security threat to China.
U.S. defense officials earlier said the Pentagon is reviewing initial accounts that two Chinese J-11 fighters made an “unsafe” interception of a U.S. Navy EP-3 spy plane in international airspace. One official said the American pilot had dropped altitude out of concern after one of the Chinese jets closed the distance between the planes to about 50 feet.
