Commentary When I read that Canada’s next federal budget would land on March 28 I thought “Oh great, that’s all we need.” Especially since Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland supposedly “reaffirmed the government’s commitment to ‘prudent fiscal management,’” and when this administration promises to “continue” something you know it’s not happening. But striving to remain positive in the fell clutch of circumstance, I thought OK, if I were finance minister what would I do? Other than resign to protest the ministry’s entanglement with the Chinese Communist Party, I mean. Or its long record of flippant profligacy (even putting aside COVID-related expenditures,…

As part of a global campaign to create legislation to combat and prevent forced organ harvesting, lawmakers in Taiwan are prepared to propose a criminal law to “severely punish the atrocity of forced organ harvesting” around the world, and especially in mainland China, where forced organ harvesting from living prisoners of conscience has been going on for two decades. On the eve of International Human Rights Day, Taiwan legislators across party lines held a press conference to promote and rally more support. Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) legislator Hsu Chih-chieh, the main organizer of the initiative, said in the press conference,…

Concerns have been raised about Chinese propaganda spreading through Pacific island nations with little oversight in order to stir up unease around Australia’s security alliances. A new report by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute says Beijing is trying to stir up a negative perception of the trilateral AUKUS alliance between Australia, the United States and the United Kingdom. The report said while China also tried to drum up support for its own security arrangements in the region, it fell short on both occasions. “The Chinese Communist Party is conducting coordinated information operations in Pacific island countries,” the report says. “Those operations are…

Commentary The Australian federal government needs to reverse its disastrous policy to ban live sheep exports. The Labor party of today seems more beholden to inner-city green elites than the workers who serve in the sheep industry and were the spiritual founders of their party. The many shearers and farm workers who founded the union movement in the great outback of Australia would be spinning in their graves to witness the recent decision of the party they helped found turning its back on their sector with the loss of jobs for hundreds, if not thousands, of their mates. The decision…

Cleo Lai Tsz-hei, a 4-month-old girl in Hong Kong suffering from heart failure, underwent an organ transplant with a heart from mainland China on Dec. 17, 2022. The baby is currently recovering in the intensive care unit (ICU). Believed to be the first-ever organ sent from the mainland to Hong Kong for a transplant, hospital officials did not answer questions about how they ensured the legitimacy of the source of an organ from mainland China.

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), the top Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee, introduced a bill on Thursday to block subsidies to Chinese battery companies. If enacted, Ford’s new electric vehicle battery plant that licenses a Chinese battery maker’s technology will not qualify for the EV tax credits appropriated in the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). In addition to disqualifying a U.S. company that “relies on technology via a licensing agreement with a foreign entity of concern” for the IRA tax credits, Rubio’s bill includes other categories, such as an American company under the substantial influence of a foreign entity of…

Commentary Silicon Valley Bank (SVB), the country’s sixteenth-largest bank with $209 billion in assets, failed on Friday in one of the most shocking developments to hit the banking sector since the global financial crisis fifteen years ago. SVB’s claim to fame was its deep connection to the venture capital and tech community of Silicon Valley, boasting that “44% of U.S. venture-backed technology and health care IPOs … bank with SVB.” Well, not anymore. Is the broader banking sector at risk of contagion? This is the issue we need to look at as soon as possible. SVB’s demise came suddenly (pdf). On…

A bipartisan group of lawmakers in the Senate is aiming to hold the Chinese Communist Party accountable for forcibly harvesting organs from prisoners of conscience. S.761, also dubbed the Stop Forced Organ Harvesting Act, would authorize the State Department to deny or revoke passports and visas to anyone involved in forced organ harvesting. It would also require annual government reporting on the illicit act in foreign countries and impose sanctions on facilitators. “There is growing evidence that the Chinese Communist Party has and continues to harvest organs from persecuted religious groups, prisoners of conscience, and inmates,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.),…

Ten prominent Chinese medical experts passed away in December amid the surge of COVID across the country after Beijing abruptly lifted its zero-COVID curbs with no plan put in place for a measured retreat of the policy. Most of them were members of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and two were allegedly involved in the forced organ harvesting of prisoners of conscience. While the Chinese media reported the deaths resulting from “illness,” they didn’t provide additional information, causing Chinese netizens to speculate. ‘Strange’ Deaths Nan Dengkun, a CCP member known as one of the pioneers of modern Chinese rehabilitation medicine,…
