Canada foreign minister avoids thanking Taiwan for 500,000 masks

Canadian Foreign minister Champagne twice shies away from mentioning Taiwan when pressed to thank country for masks
 
TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — In apparent deference to Beijing, Canada's foreign minister on Thursday (May 7) twice avoided mentioning Taiwan's name when asked to thank the country for donating over 500,000 masks.


During a virtual meeting of Canada's House of Commons on Thursday, Conservative MP Ed Fast pointed out that Foreign Affairs Minister François-Philippe Champagne had sent out a tweet on March 28 to thank China for donating PPE to Canada just three hours after Beijing made the announcement. Fast then noted that much of this equipment was later found to be defective and could not be used.

In contrast, Fast noted that a full two weeks after Taiwan had donated 500,000 surgical masks to Canada, the foreign minister had yet to publicly thank the country for its contribution. Fast then asked Champagne if he would thank this "free and democratic country for its generous gift to Canadians?"


Champagne immediately ducked the question by saying "We are grateful to every nation for helping Canada." He continued to speak in general terms: "We have been expressing our thanks to many nations who have contributed."

The foreign minister then chastised his colleague for bringing up the question, saying: "It is important at [a] time of pandemic that we don't play politics." Champagne then spoke of a broad need for "humanity to come together" and to "work with every nation when it comes to health."


Dissatisfied with Champagne's cagey reply, Fast added that on May 4, Taiwan delivered 25,000 medical masks to the government of British Columbia. He informed the foreign minister that local government officials thanked Taiwan for the masks that day.

He then pressed Champagne a second time, asking "Again, will the minister now do the right thing and on the behalf of Canadians recognize the generosity of Taiwan and thank its government for that timely donation?" Repeating his earlier tactic, Champagne said Canada is grateful to "all who have given supplies" and that we are "grateful to every nation . . . for all those who have agreed to help Canada and Canadians from coast to coast."

When asked by Global News about Champagne's failure to thank Taiwan directly, his spokesperson said that International Trade Minister Mary Ng on Thursday would call Taiwan Economic Affairs Minister Shen Jong-chin (沈榮津) to "reiterate Canada’s thanks for this donation." An official also told the news agency that the Canadian Trade Office in Taipei had posted a thank you message on its official Facebook page on April 28 following the announcement of the donation.

Tweet Champagne posted to thank China for its PPE donation:


Thank you for this donation.

In the face of a global pandemic, supporting each other is not only the right thing to do, it’s the smart thing to do. https://t.co/rE1BZZfrCR

No.

All countries do this, except for 14 small ones.

You are wrong, all the countries Taiwan donated medical supplies to publicly thanked them, including the US.

Taiwan's insistence on being named is as political a tactic as Canada's refusal to do it.

China is an important economic partner for trade and they have proven in the past that they will punish economically countries over the issue of Taiwan. Even the United Nations and the Olympics ("Chinese Taipei")  kowtow to China's wishes on this topic.

Yes, sadly few countries have the balls to stand up to the CCP, I am glad to see Australia has grown a pair, despite being an important economic partner.

Australia GDP 1.4 trillion (US dollars).
China GDP 13.6 trillion (US dollars).

Australia exports 30+% to China (more than to USA, India, Japan and South Korea combined.

Elaborate please.  They are the ones that are pushing for and independent investigation into the virus, with little support from the rest of the world.

Have a look at YouTube to get the real picture.

By the way, VanIslander not everyone in politics in Canada are such cowards as the ruling party, you will note the opposition party actually thanked Taiwan publicly.

And did this.........

I don't get into party politics. Certainly not online.

So your point stands.

Australia are China's bitch because it is a huge resource exporter (coal, rare metals etc) and China buys most of it. China has infiltrated Australia's government much more than any other Western country for decades.

Any Western country has been comically deferential to China for years because they want to sell things to China and fear Chinese boycotts from CCP political correctness, but Australia is actually partially controlled by China.

Mayorhaggar lives in a country which has a huge inferiority complex towards Australia which is compounded by his natural Canadian inferiority complex that he brought with him when he immigrated to New Zealand. His views with regards to Australia should seen in this context.  ;D

New Zealand's a nice place. Clean air, beautiful nature, beaches, skiing and snowboarding. There's no shame in living there. (The reason though is his wife is a New Zealand citizen.) MayorHaggar's a good guy.

Agreed.

I spent the month of January 2005 in Auckland getting my CELTA (after two years of teaching in South Korea, wanting to boost/upgrade my skills).

I LOVED it. It was summer there. Like my birthplace Vancouver, summer afternoons are a pleasant 24-26 C. The people are chill, the beaches accessible, the air fresh, the flowers and foliage abundant.

Auckland = Vancouver in my books.

Though, if you are a skiier, Whistler is closer  to the big city than the ski hills of the South Island.
