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’s global kidnapping campaign ‘reaching inside U.S. borders’?
Beijing’s policy of forcibly repatriating people it considers Chinese nationals — some of whom are in fact citizens of other countries — is accelerating. Powerful businessmen, ex-Chinese Communist Party officials, dissidents, and activists have all been targeted as part of what Western intelligence officials say appears to be a large-scale campaign, notes Zach Dorfman, a senior fellow at the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs. Several cases of forced repatriation across borders appear to show just how seriously the Communist Party takes its assertion that anyone it regards as a national — no matter where they live, work, or study — is subject to its authority, he writes for Foreign Policy.
His early activities included defending peasants who were forced off their land by local Communist Party officials and government authorities. Later, he defended worshipers at unofficial churches that were subject to persecution. He came to Washington in 2006 with a delegation organized by ChinaAid, a Christian human rights group, and met with President George W. Bush twice. When he was given the 2008 Democracy Award by the National Endowment for Democracy, Mr. Li noted that China’s breakneck economic growth had left the country “lagging behind in advancing freedom, democracy, human rights, and rule of law.”
By his labors, often challenging the powerful, Mr. Li showed that lawyers in China could make a difference against a powerful and entrenched system. That ideal must not be abandoned, the Post insists.
