Biden calls Canada ‘China’ by accident

US President Joe Biden accidentally called Canada “China” on Friday in the House of Commons, just one day after Canadian MPs voted in favour of a public inquiry to find out just how much the Chinese Communist Party runs Canada.

Biden calls Canada ‘China’ by accident

Biden was speaking before the very same MPs who just less than twenty four hours prior voted in favour of the public inquiry.

“So today, I applaud China for stepping up — I apologize, Canada!” Biden said.

While many pundits will likely chalk this Biden gaffe up to his presumed dementia, the timing couldn’t be worse.

On Wednesday, MP Han Dong resigned from the Liberal caucus amid a bombshell allegation that he asked Chinese diplomats to hold off from releasing the Canadian Michaels from prison in 2021.

At the time, Canadians Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor were imprisoned in China for more than two years in what was presumed retribution from the CCP after Canada detained the Hauwei executive, Meng Wanzhou, at the request of the US government.

Global News reports that, according to an anonymous Canadian Intelligence leaker, Dong spoke with China’s consul general in Toronto, Han Tao, advising him that the Conservative Party of Canada would benefit if they released the two Michaels. Instead, Dong suggested Beijing “show some progress” on the matter. 

Moreover, Dong admitted to Global that he spoke with the Chinese consul general in Toronto, but insisted that the allegations are false.

The Prime Minster’s Office reports having no knowledge of the alleged conversation between Dong and China’s consul general — and that Dong was never used as a “back channel.”

This report from Global on Wednesday comes just one day after the Don Valley North MP Dong denied all accusations of wrongdoing against him. Last month, Global News alleged from another alleged Intelligence leak that the CCP mobilized Chinese international students to campaign for Liberal candidates including Dong.

Furthermore, Global has reported from Intelligence leaks that China employed a sophisticated strategy to interfere in Canada’s 2019 and 2021 elections to help Trudeau win, and ensure the Conservatives lost.
