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.

Passenger from Iran on flight from Montrealto Vancouver tests positive for new coronavirus
Woman was flying on Air Canada on Feb. 14 and the airline will contact all passengers seated within three rows of her.
A woman aboard an Air Canada flight from Montreal to Vancouver on Feb. 14 has tested positive for the new coronavirus, the airline learned on Saturday.
“Air Canada was advised on Feb. 22 by health authorities that a passenger who flew from Montreal to Vancouver on Feb. 14 has since tested positive for COVID-19,” the airline said in a statement.
The BC Centre for Disease Control, which advised Air Canada about the passenger, is following up with passengers, the statement continued, “as per the standard procedure in such cases. Air Canada is working with public health authorities and has taken all recommended measures.”
According to TVA Nouvelles, which obtained an internal memo distributed by the airline to employees to advise about the passenger, the BC health authority advised Air Canada it planned to contact all passengers seated within three rows of the woman. The risk is considered low enough that crew would not have to be isolated, but should monitor their health for a 14-day period and report any symptoms to a health professional.
According to TVA, the passenger’s journey had originated in Iran; on the flight from Montreal to Vancouver, she is said to have had a dry cough and mild flu symptom.
Iran announced on Sunday the death toll from the virus was eight, higher than any country outside China. According to media reports, three deaths reported Sunday were among 15 new confirmed cases of the virus and the total number of infections was 43. There were also concerns about clusters in Italy and South Korea.
