Conservatives ask CSIS to investigate John McCallum's comments

The Conservative Party is asking Canada's spy agency to investigate the recent case.

John McCallum, who was fired as an ambassador in January, said that in a recent interview in China's Foreign Affairs Ministry that any further "punishments" imposed on Canada's exports could trigger a change of government that is unfavorable to Beijing

"Anything that is more negative against Canada wants to help the Conservatives, [who] are much less friendly to China than the Liberals," McCallum reported South China Morning Post, published in a story Wednesday.

McCallum's "disturbing" comments pose a threat to the security of Canada.

"This advice is partisan in nature and encouraged the Government of China to take specific actions in order to influence Canada's democratic process," she wrote.

This is highly inappropriate, for a myriad of reasons, not the least of which is the Government of China continues to arbitrarily detain two Canadian Canadians, Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor, and has taken other hostile actions towards Canada. "

The party told Radio-Canada the letter, co-signed by public safety critic Pierre Paul-Hus, What sent on Friday.

It therefore asks that McCallum's activities be included as part of the regular briefings on the critical election incident protocol panel.

Raitt and Paul-Hus wrote: "Canadians expect that the upcoming election will be conducted in a free and fair manner, and that there are no incidents of foreign interference.

"We believe Mr. McCallum's actions, as confirmed by his own public statements, deserve the utmost scrutiny of your agency."

Freeland lists herself from comments

McCallum's interview comes after Vancouver's Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou arrives at the United States in December.

"This problem wants to pass," McCallum was quoted as saying. "It's important for Canadian business people not just to come to China, but to come often … especially when the going is tough."

Meng, daughter of the founder of the Chinese Telecom Giant, had a strong case in fighting extradition to the U.S.

According to recent comments from John McCallum, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland says the former Ambassador to China does not speak on the federal government's behalf. 12:48

Thus, any deal to spare Meng from prosecution in the U.S. should include the release of Kovrig and Spavor.

Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland also took exception to her former cabinet colleague's comments while speaking to reporters at an event in London on Thursday.

"Mr. McCallum does not speak in the name of the Canadian Government," she said.

Anyone who chooses to vote in any foreign government in ways that it ought or ought to be able to secure any particular election outcome in Canada. "
