Finally - someone paying attention to Justin Trudeau

National Post and Ottawa Citizen columnist Terry Glavin is clearly paying attention - surely somebody in the opposition should have noticed this as well, no?
For the millions of Canadians who voted for Justin Trudeau in the hopes of a break from the past, the appointment of the grizzled mandarin Peter Harder to lead Trudeau’s transition to power doesn’t look like a harbinger of a fresh new start.

Harder, a former deputy minister of foreign affairs and trade, comes straight out of the cohort of Liberal party grandees that Trudeau assured his party recruits and leadership-race supporters would no longer be running the show in Ottawa.

For starters, Harder is president of the Canada China Business Council (CCBC), a powerful group of corporate and bureaucratic strivers that is functionally indistinguishable from the old and discredited Liberal party establishment that Canadian voters unseated a decade ago.
We can now expect to see a very pro-China government and that will mean more takeovers in the oil patch by Chinese State-Owned Enterprises. Interestingly, not one word about China came up in the debates during the election.


By the way, here is what Terry Glavin had to say about my book, Conservative Confidential: Inside The Fabulous Blue Tent:

Harper deliberately snubbed the Chinese when he came to power and now there's an opportunity to undo some of the damage that is left. I happen to believe trade is the best way to engage with China, so I strongly disagreed with the previous approach.
