    Conservatives on Tuesday continued their push for the federal Liberal government to take a harder line in dealing with China.

    Members of Parliament voted 171 to 148 in favour of a creating a special committee to re-evaluate virtually all aspects of Canada's relationship with China.

    The motion, which was presented earlier in the day by the Official Opposition, initially wasn't expected to pass and is the latest push from the Tories to urge the government to take a firmer stance.

    All opposition MPs from the Bloc Quebecois, NDP and the Greens supported the motion to establish the committee. Former Liberal cabinet member and lone independent MP Jody Wilson-Raybould also voted in favour of the committee, which would consist of six Liberals, four Conservatives, one Bloc Quebecois and one New Democrat.

    The combined opposition members would outnumber government members as a Liberal would have to chair the committee, and would only be allowed to vote in the event of a tie.

    The committee would also be authorized to order Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Public Safety Minister Bill Blair, Foreign Affairs Minister Francois-Phillipe Champagne and Dominic Barton, Canada's ambassador to China, to appear as witnesses "from time to time" as it sees fit.

    It comes on the one-year anniversary of China's detention of Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor, which many have said appeared to be in retaliation for Canada honouring its extradition treaty with the U.S. in arresting Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou.

    A Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson told reporters earlier Tuesday that both Kovrig and Spavor's cases were transferred to prosecutors, hinting at an upcoming trial for the two.

    Their cases, which were sent for "review and prosecution in accordance with the law," are often carried out behind closed doors. In past cases, convictions were seen as a virtually certain.

    Both Kovrig and Spavor have not had access to both lawyers and contact with family members, while Meng has been living under house in one of her two Vancouver mansions.

    Two other Canadians have also been sentenced to death while imports of Canadian canola have been stopped by China.

    On Monday, the Conservatives pressed the government in question period about why it has not yet made any decision on whether to ban Huawei from Canada’s 5G network.

    The auction for a substantial part of that new network is expected next year.

    But the Liberals have delayed the decision after initially promising that it would come before the election.

    Tory MPs continued pressure during question period on Tuesday, as well, eventually culminating in the motion being put forward.

    "Today the House is debating the most challenging foreign policy relationship Canada has at present — China," said Conservative foreign affairs critic Erin O'Toole.

    "The government has made serious missteps on security and trade issues with the Chinese government and is avoiding tough decisions when it comes to Huawei and other issues, so will the prime minister agree to a specialized all-party committee to review all aspects of the Canada-China relationship?"

    The Liberals have since said that Canada's relationship with China is "incredibly important," but that they were exploring all issues pertaining to human rights, democracy, trade and national security.

    "They are and will remain our absolute priority. We will continue to work tirelessly to secure their immediate release and to stand up for them as a government and as Canadians," said Minister of International Development Karina Gould during question period Tuesday.

    "We are grateful to the many countries around the world that have expressed support for Mr. Kovrig and Mr. Spavor."

    讲真,保守党在这事上一直是为批评(自由党)而批评,从来没有提出过实际可行的办法,只有添乱的劲头。
    成立这么一个专门委员会来审查,很难说有多大作用。
    土豆政府缺的是懂中国又有头脑的人去和中国打交道,这种人保守党和其他党派议员里面一样欠缺。

    哥最近没看明白, 西方突然大肆反华, 到底是对中国政治改革没有耐心了彻底放弃了, 还是因为习大大搞运动专权倒退?

    如果回到胡温江朱时代韬光养晦, 大家还能愉快地玩耍吗 ...

    真正的韬光养晦必须是偷偷的。
    邓小平当年大声说韬光养晦,你当西方列强是傻子?

    根本原因是当年中国还不够分量,人家没太当回事。

    真回到一穷二白也就没人反你了。
    你这两个观点跟事实完全对立。说的仿佛是,西方国家看中国进步缓慢,发扬白求恩的精神去帮忙一样。为了中国的发展真是操碎了心。可能吗?
    你觉着西方是希望中国好还是坏呢?我看还是希望中国动乱,倒退的多吧。

    一带一路是中国经济成长,利益扩张外溢所导致。这个惹了事,那只说明中美进入了利益零合博弈阶段。
    换个胡温式的领导不解决问题,如果能把中国经济降低到胡温时期的水平,中美矛盾就会缓解很多。
    如果能降低到刚改开的水平,中美很快会回到蜜月期。可是有可能吗?
    地球就怎么大,资源就这么多,国人的上进心有就这么强,现在这种情况是避免不了的


    那就是厉害国一带一路惹的事儿?

    意识形态差别太大,反华的声音一直都存在,不过以前西方内部还有不同的声音。最近几年情况变了,美国的民主党和共和党在很多问题上撕,唯独对华的事情上空前一致,你说为啥?
    年初加拿大有个当了多年驻亚洲记者和专栏作家的人出了本反华书叫Claws of the Panda,不是说他讲的都对,但是看看他写的,有助于从西方的角度回答你这个问题。

    厉害国可以不用大声,但是一带一路必须要做。这是为了打破美国在第一第二岛链特别是马六甲的封锁。再说明白一点,你被邻居老王卡住了脖子还堵住了门前大道,你是继续韬光养晦装鸵鸟?还是想办法摆脱他,同时打通从后门出去的路?
