Shameful that Canada doesn't stop import of slave goods from Communist-occupied China
National Post: Terry Glavin: 'Since NAFTA was renegotiated and Canada was forced to bar the trade in goods produced by forced labour, Canada has seized a single shipment of garments into Canada, and only temporarily. The shipment was later released. The United States, meanwhile, in just the period from October 2020 to September 2021, intercepted more than 1400 shipments of forced-labour imports. Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom have passed new laws and enforced new regulations aimed at shutting down the forced-labour camps in Xinjiang, but Canada remains a laggard.

There’s not a western democracy that has opened rich middle class markets to the Chinese and has been as complacent in dealing with human rights violations. Your guess is as good as mine as to why, but it is shameful.”...'
