Keep out those Chinese communist commerce ministers!

This is an old post from Global Politician Global Politician seems to copy all of the stuff from Canadian Coalition for Democracies. Harris represents this group at the Iacobucci inquiry. I posted his very complimentary article about Iacobucci's ruling that the inquiry should be held in secret. Harris shows little concern for the rights of the three Muslim's involved to clear their name. He shows little concern for Guantanamo as far as I can discern. He is rabidly pro-Israel and anti- Syria, Iran, and China too it seems. As trade between China and Canada increases even Harper is not likely to heed Harris' advice. Harris used to work as a strategist for CSIS! Harris supports a US attack against Iran and has an article outlining the reasons why Iran should be attacked and Canada should support the attack. Harris does not give any sources for his accusations against Bo Xilai.

Visit To Canada By China's Commerce Minister Bo Xilai
David Harris - 5/28/2007
Ottawa, Canada - The Canadian Coalition for Democracies (CCD) is concerned about the entry into Canada of China's Commerce Minister, Bo Xilai on Monday May 28th, 2007. There are serious allegations about Bo Xilai regarding torture and crimes against humanity. These concerns have been brought to the attention of Canadian government officials, the RCMP and the Department of Justice's Interdepartmental Operations Group of Canada’s Crimes Against Humanity & War Crimes Program.

As a global leader and supporter of international law, including laws dealing with crimes against humanity and torture, Canada has an important role to play in ensuring that those credibly accused of such crimes be brought before the appropriate legal bodies to face justice.

CCD notes that Prime Minister Harper has acted with conviction and compassion when it comes to respecting human rights.

We trust that the Prime Minister will maintain his record by keeping Bo Xilai out of Canada, and by supporting the efforts of victims and their family members, together with those of reputable human rights organizations, to see that justice is done.

David Harris is the Senior Fellow for National Security at the Canadian Coalition for Democracies.
