    give in now and we will lose all credibility to our security partners around the world and china will do this over everything…

    • Problem is if you don’t give in now, then you will lose more.

    • @John Lee exactly. imagine Canada without everything “made in china”…and without them buying up the enormous amounts of Canadian products…. taxes will need to quadruple…

    • Can’t give into terrorism. No matter what form it is. @john Lee, what are we going to lose more of? Made in china products can be found else where. $ doesnt replace the worlds’ respect & honour.

    • @P I you’re confusing taxes with profits from private businesses. Canada doesnt sell products directly to the consumer. Try again

    • Canada already flushed off her last ounce of credibility when she decided to kidnap Ms. Meng !! There is none left.. !!!

  3. Totally agree👍 never negotiate with arbitrary detention .

  5. What does “we are working very hard” even mean? Thks shud have been resolved last year… so what does that even mean turdeau ?

    Only 500 days late. Resign and let a leader fix your mess.

  7. We need to bring back all our manufacturing domestically, especially in this new economy where we need more jobs.

  8. What do you do to get “unilateral advantage”? hallucinations ?

    Take away Meng’s civil rights through an act of parliament and imprison her to the same standards as the two Michaels.

    I am so glad the PM stand up to China and don’t let China to bully Canadians . She need to face her consequences, we will not allow China political games that can put others at risk. They need to free up these two innocent men that has been wrongfully detained.

  19. You can be sure it would be a different Scenario if it was someone Close to him

    We need a mixture of Trudeau and Stephen Harper on the ratio of 70:30.
