Canadian Cabinet Officials Under Scrutiny

This article covering Canada’s spy agency investigating whether cabinet officials in two provinces are under foreign control reinforces the importance of nationalism for a country’s survival. The nation suspected is of course China. We have two Senators here in California that I believe if we were living in the fifties would be in prison. Senators Feinstein and Boxer have so many ties with Mainland China it’s a wonder they’re not considered China’s representatives in the Senate rather than California’s.
It will be interesting the way all the politicians in Canada are gasping in surprise at this news if any real investigations actually happen. I’m rooting for Canada’s security agency to uncover these people and find out whether they actually committed quid pro quo legislation for a foreign power or if the cabinet officials were duped. Depending on their success in the matter I wonder if we can hire them to take a look at our congress, especially my two Senators.

It's a murky situation. Seems the CSIS head is back-peddling now.
I assume foreign governments will always try. I assume that in some cases foreign gov'ts will be successful. I never assume that all politicians in any country are pure.

I hold no illusions concerning politicians of any ilk, Bernita. I'm hoping Canada's security agency does a better job than our alphabet soup agencies on this quid pro quo legislative stuff with foreign entities. In our FBI's defense, they get fired or transferred to some gulag when they start investigating our holy congressional reps.

I'd guess taht most politiicans need to be scrutinized. The whole group of them aren't any too clean.

That is certainly true, Charles. When they start fishing around in foreign waters though, they put their own country at risk.
