A report from Alliance Canada delivered to the House of Commons committee on Canada-China relations is warning that the influence of the People’s Republic of China in Canada is widespread, but has gone “largely unnoticed.”
No sensible Canadian should be surprised at this declaration. As a watchdog organization for Canada-China relations, Cultural Action Party apply the “unnoticed” theory to the entire spectrum of interaction between the two countries.

Are Canadians so in love with the behemoth nation that they approve of Liberal Party-China relations? Can it be that, in reality, communism is the greatest thing since sliced bread for Canadian voters?
