Former Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chrétien said in an interview on Oct. 24 that Canada must face up to the reality that China has become a world class power.
In an interview on October 24, the composite media reported that when talking about Canada-China relations, Chrétien said that if it were him, he would have taken a different approach to what has happened between Canada and China in recent years, and that the Canadian government must face up to the reality that China has become a world class power.
In Chrétien’s view, Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor “are victims of the United States government”.
The United States forced us, our government decided to go along with the United States, and the Canadian government thought they had no other choice,” Chrétien said. But I think they had other options.”
In response to comments about Justin Trudeau’s governing team, Chrétien said he doesn’t want to judge the current government, “I’m not in the position to be in the position to be in the position. But sometimes I think they could probably do a better job if they had some older, more experienced seniors to help.”
In his forthcoming book, he writes, “Trudeau and his team would love to be bold reformers, and they are increasingly conspicuous by their inexperience in getting there.”
In addition, with regard to Canada’s current highest inflation in almost 20 years, Chrétien says that “we are printing money like crazy” and that the situation worries him. But he also believes that the government has no other choice, “we are walking into a dark alley, but we have to go all the way.” Because the government has no choice in the face of the new crown epidemic.
Recent figures released in Canada show that annualised inflation in Canada has reached 4.4% in September, the highest rate in almost 20 years. The cost of living expenses for residents has risen sharply, with the price of gasoline increasing by almost 33% and meat by almost 10%.
