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.

China Charges Canadian with Spying and Stealing
China said Friday it has charged a Canadian with spying and stealing state secrets.
China Charges Canadian
with Spying and Stealing
Kevin Garratt was arrested in August 2014 with his wife, Julia. She was released after six months but is not allowed to leave China. She and her husband ran a coffee shop in Dandong in northeastern China. They also conducted Christian aid work for North Koreans.
"During the investigation, authorities found that Kevin Garratt may also be involved in gathering information for Canadian information agencies," Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said in Beijing.
Garratt's parents said their son was arrested because he is Christian.
Hua rejected that it has anything to do with religion. She said "he was indictedbecause of spying and stealing Chinese state secrets.” China's concept of state secrets can be very broad.
Canada said it was concerned about the Garratt indictment. It has raised the issue with the Chinese government "at high levels." A week ago, Canada accused Chinesehackers of breaking into a key computer network.
News of the indictment reached Canadian officials one day after they attended alavish party hosted by China in Ottawa, the Canadian capital. It marked the 45th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the two countries.
