Canada summons Chinese ambassador over alleged threats to MP Michael Chong​

OTTAWA - The Liberal government is summoning China's ambassador over allegations by Canada's spy agency that a Chinese diplomat in Toronto was involved in a plot to intimidate a Conservative MP and his family.

Foreign Affairs Minister Melanie Joly said Thursday she asked her deputy minister to tell Chinese Ambassador Cong Peiwu that Canada will not tolerate any form of foreign interference in its affairs.

Joly confirmed media reports that the Canadian Security Intelligence Service believes a diplomat working out of China's Toronto consulate had targeted Conservative MP Michael Chong and his relatives in Hong Kong, due to his criticism of Beijing's human-rights record.

"What has happened is completely unacceptable," Joly told the House of Commons foreign affairs committee Thursday morning, looking across the room to Chong.

"All options including expulsion of diplomats remains on the table, as we consider the consequences for this behaviour," Joly said.

The Opposition Conservatives are urging the Liberals to expel the diplomat. Joly said she will make sure all foreign envoys follow the United Nations agreement that sets out acceptable activities.

"All foreign agents in Canada must abide by the Vienna Convention. If they do not, there will be consequences," she told MPs.

Joly expressed her sympathy for Chong, who glared at Joly asking why the diplomat had not already been sent packing.

"I cannot imagine the shock and concern of learning that your loved ones have been targeted in this way," Joly said.

Chong appeared unimpressed.

"So why is this diplomat still here?" he asked.

"A diplomat who has more rights and immunities than the Canadians around this table, to go around and conduct his foreign-interference threat activities. He has diplomatic immunity; he cannot be criminally prosecuted."


The Conservatives insist the federal Liberal government failed to act on the threat that came up two years ago, but Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said this week that the security agency made the decision not to notify anyone.

Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre has presented a motion in the House of Commons asking MPs to call on the government to take more aggressive action against threats of foreign interference, including expelling Chinese diplomats.

Trudeau said Wednesday that he had only learned after a Globe and Mail article on Monday, citing top-secret documents, said CSIS had the intelligence. He said he has ordered Canada's intelligence agencies to immediately inform MPs of any threats against them, regardless of whether those threats are considered credible.

"CSIS made the determination that it wasn't something that needed to be raised to a higher level because it wasn't a significant enough concern," Trudeau said Wednesday.

He said that around the same time, CSIS was asked to brief Chong after China publicly said it would sanction him for criticizing Beijing's treatment of Uyghur Muslims in China's Xinjiang province.

But the agency never told Chong about any threats.

Earlier Thursday in Beijing, China's Foreign Ministry played down allegations of China trying to intimidate Chong and his relatives.

"China is opposed to any interference in a country's internal affairs. We never interfere in Canada's internal affairs and have no interest whatsoever in doing so," spokeswoman Mao Ning told reporters, according to an official English transcription.

"We are resolute in defending our sovereignty, security and development interests and opposing actions that interfere in China's internal affairs and harm China's interests."

This report by The Canadian Press was first published May 4, 2023.

这种事情,有证据就直接拿出来,不用驱逐也呆不下去。没证据,驱逐也没用。忘了孟晚舟事件啦?唱高调没用,最后还不是交换。

就算真有这个事,但跟当年64美国驻华大使亲自下场指导王丹们搞暴乱比,不值一提。

反对党义正词严地质问外长什么时候知晓此事,为什么还不驱除这位参与威胁的外交官?

外长说,她是从媒体报道中知道的。今天外交部召见了中国大使。

上次指控中国干预加拿大大选,保守党一定要问清楚情报机构是何时通知总理的,叫来了总理办公室人员,到国会作证,似乎也没搞清楚个时间线。

这次总理和外长事先明确宣布,CSIS没有认为此事需要上报政府首脑。

又是媒体先捅出来的。我感觉奇怪的是,如果说干涉大选,需要情报机构报告,这个亲属受到威胁,议员不应当比总理,情报机关先知道吗? 也许亲属担心影响议员的身心健康,所以隐忍不告诉他?


德国DW的报道:

加拿大召见中国大使 考虑驱逐外交官​


57分钟 前

涉恐吓家人​

华裔加拿大国会议员庄文浩(Michael Chong)週三(3日)要求加拿大政府驱逐1名中国外交官,该外交官涉嫌搜集庄文浩在香港的家人资讯,对其构成威胁。对此,加拿大总理特鲁多 (Justin Trudeau)坦承,情报机构先前已知悉此事,但隐瞒了消息。

加拿大保守党议员庄文浩过去多次批评中国的人权问题;据法新社报道,他呼吁驱逐中国外交官一事,已得到其他反对派议员的响应,他们要求加拿大政府采取行动。

本週,加拿大《环球邮报》(The Globe and Mail)报道称,加拿大政府对北京干涉加拿大事务视而不见,引发了强烈抗议。

该报道援引机密文件和匿名安全消息来源称,中国情报机构打算对庄文浩和他的亲属实施制裁,因为他们在2021年2月的国会投票,支持了谴责北京在新疆的行为是种族灭绝的动议。

“(这)几乎可以肯定是为了用这位议员杀鸡儆猴,阻止其他人采取反华立场”,加拿大安全情报局(CSIS)的一份文件称。

据传,中国驻多伦多总领馆的一名外交官员参与了此事。“这个人需要立即被宣布为不受欢迎的人”,庄文浩在听取了CSIS的详情简报后这么告诉记者。

庄文浩说,“(加拿大)政府需要澄清谁知道什么,什么时候知道,他们做了什么”。随后,加拿大国会就这个问题,进行了激烈的问答。

情报机构知情​

路透社报道,特鲁多3日表示,加拿大情报机构隐瞒了有关中国在2021年对庄文浩及其家人构成威胁的信息。特鲁多说他已告诉CSIS,未来必须立即披露此类威胁,但他也告诉媒体, CSIS当时认为该威胁的程度不严重,因此没有让他知道。

特鲁多此前曾表示,中国曾试图干预2019年和2021年的加拿大选举,但并未改变大选结果。他已任命一名独立特别调查员调查这些指控。

没有看见实锤的证据,如果仅仅是收集情报,试问哪个国家的大使馆不收集情报?

说威胁,就拿出威胁的证据来,靠证据说话。

这还用报道吗?肯定是完全否认:无稽之谈。

反正当事人说什么都没用。唯一需要做的是:亮出证据,包括那些干预选举的指控。

就像美国热炒了一阵中国给俄国提供武器,CIA局长先是言之凿凿,有证据表明。。。。。。结果就是展示了一架淘宝的无人机,不太好意思说了,后来改为:确信不久的未来将要提供。

这属于预防犯罪的技术。

领事馆否认涉入​

中国驻多伦多总领馆发言人週四(4日)发表声明回应称,有关中国领事馆官员胁迫加拿大议员及其家人的报道,“没有事实依据,纯属无稽之谈”,中方对此表示强烈不满和坚决反对。

这份声明指出:“我馆一贯恪守《维也纳领事关系公约》和中加领事协定依法履职,各级领事官员从未从事任何与身份不符的活动。”

该发言人称,加拿大个别媒体和政客散布有关虚假信息,蓄意损害中国领事馆的声誉和形象,恶意干扰双方正常交往与合作

“我馆敦促有关媒体和政客尊重事实,立即停止造谣抹黑”,声明说。

所谓民主,就是议员总理部长都 TM 的可以胡说八道。以道听途说为依据,以想象为事实,就TM的堂而皇之的拿到桌面上抗议

一些议员更TM 无耻到自己造谣
