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].

Crumbling apartment building held together by tape
Tape can fix anything, as these photos show of a cracking residential building on Shandong Road of Jinan, Shandong Province on October 8, where crumbling concrete pillars are held together with transparent packing tape.

And he said the project was finished too quickly.
“Chinese water conservancy experts have been distressed by the government on the issue of the Three Gorges,” he is quoted as saying, with the Chinese language media site CT Want quoting Wang saying there was a “serious concern over cracks and substandard concrete discovered” during the dam’s construction.
