Another reason this Liberal govt. does not want an inquiry into election interference is it will expose successive federal governments have been suppressing national security whistleblowers' disclosures starting in the mid-1990's i.e. the Sidewinder Report for starters which govt. wrongly discounted and discredited apparently to avoid "embarrassment". Whistleblower Brian McAdam, Senior Immigration Officer at Canada's High Commission in Hong Kong at the time, reported up the line, corruption and bribery in this same High Commission that saw criminal records of Chinese Triads erased from computers allowing these bad actors to flow into Canada with false passports as early as the 1990's. These criminals (members of Triads and linked to CCP) brought with them drug trafficking, human trafficking, and subsequently addictions, prostitution, money laundering, inflated house prices and ultimately election interference. Again McAdam was suppressed in 2006 when he was barred from submitting a brief to the Parliamentary committee reviewing the then new Whistleblower Protection law. His invitation to appear was cancelled by the new Conservative government at the last minute. His brief provided intelligence and made recommendations in 2006 that could/would have mitigated the election interference we are seeing today which is threatening our democracy. If anyone wants to see the brief, see it here: https://www.whistleblowingcanada.com/consequences

Hi Pamela, international investigations continue to emerge spotlighting the kinds of problems Brian was one of the first to see -- what I am suggesting is a Public Inquiry will find very similar fact patterns to this story right here, and I am afraid worse. https://www.propublica.org/article/how-beijing-chinese-mafia-europe-protect-interests

Agreed. A public inquiry is a must in order to get at the root causes. And one of them is that both Canada's political and bureaucratic classes have suppressed and victimized honest public-servants trying to disclose wrongdoing for decades - enabling themselves to maintain their power and privilege with the rest of us paying the price. Democracy and honest government requires protection of whistleblowers or corruption will grow. This case is a screaming example of that. I haven't seen too many headlines yet pointing this out and making the link between the corrupt Hong Kong Canadian High Commission and subsequent governments' suppression/oppression of whistleblowers at the time and today's mess. Only when individual Canadians get this and start making it loud and clear to the majority of our apparently deaf, dumb and blind political class, that we do not tolerate abuse and victimization of honest employees acting to protect us from dire consequences, will anything change. Let's hope it is not too late.

Our government seems to be run by, well, they are just not “serious people”. Thank goodness you are a serious person. Thank you for your great work.

Is this why I am directed to an University of Maryland comedy group podcast when I search for "The Bureau Podcast" with my regular podcast player?

Thanks to you and Jon for this. I’ll be watching my inbox for updates.

I thought that your book was one of the most important Canadian books currently available, and I used to catch Jon on NW on the internet from time to time from west of the Rockies, so finding you both in the same podcast is a real treat.

P.S. I cited this article and your book 'Wilful Blindness' in today's podcast. I have been carping about the Vancouver Model for over a year, after living with overt CCP influence in Seattle and Western WA State. Venezuela emptied their prisons and they are sending their jailbird Bolshevik squadrons up through the Darien Gap in Panama. The fact that the PLA-Gulf Cartel international crime facility is getting policy assistance from Matty Yglesias and the Biden Administration was a plot twist I never saw coming.

Do you think the CCP is softening the west up with fentanyl? Why don’t we have the will to stop the drugs from getting to our shores?

Sam we are interested in purchasing a home in the lower mainland area. We have some suspicion that one of the title holders and/or a mortgage holder in the ppty might be linked to narcotic traffickers. Is there some way to check? Would you be able to (privately) advise?

I'm afraid I'm not in position to advise, but speaking very generally, I think this is a widespread problem in Vancouver. i.e. The Cullen Comm. found 1.2 billion in large cash transactions in LM govt. casinos in 2014. My work suggests much of that cash would tie into security on homes, (loan shark mortgages) and most of the players with this cash were real estate developers and buyers in Vancouver.
