Canada China Relations
Mr. Speaker, our relations with China are at an all-time low, and all the Prime Minister is willing to do is to blame the Americans. China has banned Canadian pork, banned Canadian canola and detained two Canadians.
While China is bullying Canada, the Prime Minister is giving over a quarter of a billion dollars to China’s Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank.
Will the Prime Minister quit blaming others for his failures, pull all funding to the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, file a trade challenge at the WTO and immediately appoint a new ambassador?

Mr. Speaker, once again the Conservatives continue the Harper era of turning their backs on the world. They should not be cheering. As a result of the types of policies that the Conservatives had, they had some of the lowest growth since the Great Depression.
We on this side, with Canadians, have created over one million jobs, and that is because we know a strong global economy is good for Canada and good for Canadians.
