Perhaps if they cover up enough things, people won't look to hard as to why.

Have they ever heard of Barbara Striesand?

It's Winnie the Pooh's (and the CCP) favourite way to stifle dissent, and it works well in China. Here in the West, it increases pushback.

I don't shop there much, but I'll encourage the family to buy from H&M and not FILA, which as the story notes, has no problems buying cotton from forced labourers in Xinjiang.

Chinese diplomats say the darnedest things these days:

$1:

A Chinese consul general in Brazil has derided Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as a “running dog” of the U.S. whose only accomplishment is to ruin friendly relations with China, the latest example of Beijing’s combative new, “wolf-warrior” brand of diplomacy.

Li Yang, based in Rio de Janeiro, also referred to Trudeau as “boy” and a spendthrift in an apparent retort to Canada’s recent Uyghur-related sanctions against China.

All I hear when Chinese authorities speak, is Charlie Brown's teacher.

I'd forbid Chinese goods from entering Canada and expel the Chinese Ambassador, while at the same time recalling our Ambassador.

I'd also require all Chinese citizens applying for a visa or already in Canada to reapply for the visa from China.

If China wishes to sell goods to Canada they can pay huge surcharges for Export Duties.

Basically Screw China.

As tempting as it is to ban Chinese goods, I don't think we can do that under WTO rules. Our options may also be limited by that trade deal Harper's government signed with China in 2014 (that we cannot get out of for 30+ years).

However, I'm sure we could delay Chinese goods by scanning each container (slowly) coming from China to ensure they aren't tainted, just like they've done in the past to our meat and canola exports. I'm of the opinion that our actions should mirror that of belligerent nations.

The visa changes you suggested for Chinese citizens are easy enough to implement.

Unfortunately, Trudeau has shown he's very reluctant to take any aggressive steps against Chinese aggression.

As someone who usually votes Liberal, I would trust Michael Chong as PM ahead of anybody right now.

The bonus that China hates his guts makes him the best candidate.
