Our best buddy Mao

Former Prime Minister Jean Chrétien reportedly is bemoaning about how Canada is no longer communist China’s best friend.

And it’s true.

Once upon a time Canada and China were the best of friends.

We would hang around at the malls together, go out on double-dates and every once in a while we would pull the odd prank at the United Nations.

But then Stephen Harper became Prime Minister and things started turning sour. For one thing, Harper -- spoiled sport that he is --- started talking about “serious” stuff, such as human rights abuses.

So naturally this put off our formerly best buddies, the Chinese who can be very sensitive when it comes to how they torture, murder and imprison people.

They were used to Liberal leaders like the late Pierre Trudeau who realized that while Chinese dictators such as Mao Tse Tung might have slaughtered several million people, it was all really done with the best of intentions.

Hey, you can’t make a communist utopia without breaking a few eggs.

Hopefully current Liberal Michael Ignatieff can help restore our “special” relationship with China.

A good start would be for Ignatieff to film his next political ad in Tiananmen Square.

(After, of course, he got permission from the Chinese political censors)

Hey,it's not that far fetched. Iggy's views on torture are not that far off the Chinese government's. Two peas in a pod.

Finally, a post that makes me believe that you are really a conservative, Gerry.

But just out of curiosity, how do the Liberals and NDP justify their make-nice policies toward China?

Thanks Gabby.

I have fixed the link.

Yeah Gerry, are you gettin' soft? That was almost feigned indirect compliment for the conservatives. ;-) We all know that commies will always bow to another commie so we know where the liberals stand on the issues. (real conservative)
