Toronto has unofficial Chinese police stations

The Chinese government has opened illegal police stations worldwide, including in Canada.

According to an NGO, the Fuzhou Public Security Bureau may have established more than fifty overseas police service centres. Three such operations are in Toronto, home to Canada’s largest Chinese diaspora.

The human rights NGO Safeguard Defenders says the purpose of Chinese outposts in Canada is to force the return of Chinese nationalists who’ve broken Chinese law.

China has said Canadian police outposts will help Chinese nationals renew their driver’s licences and other official Chinese information. Nevertheless, Safeguard Defenders allegedly found China is also using their Canadian outposts to track off-grid Chinese criminals and political opposition.

The Epoch Times reports that the Chinese government uses “involuntary returns operations,” including an operation called “Fox Hunt” and the “Sky Net” campaign.” These operations track down a target’s family in China to “pressure them through means of intimidation, harassment, detention or imprisonment into persuading their family members to return voluntarily.”

In an op-ed published in The Globe and Mail by Charles Burton, a senior fellow at the Macdonald-Laurier Institute, questions Canada’s “security capabilities on the issue” and calls the situation an “outrage.”

“Chinese police setting up offices in Canada, then ‘persuading’ alleged criminals to return to the motherland to face ‘justice’ – while our own government and security services apparently choose to look the other way – represents a gross violation of Canada’s national sovereignty, international law and the norms of diplomacy,” Burton wrote.

“China is extending the grip of its Orwellian police state into this country, with seemingly no worry about being confronted by our own national security agencies.”

In response to the revelation, People’s Party of Canada leader Maxime Bernier asked if Canada is just another “Chinese province under Trudeau.”

“How is this possible?” Bernier wrote on Twitter.

According to CBC, Canada’s spy agency has warned that China has been trying to misguide news and influence Canadian media. 

“The warning is contained in briefing documents drafted for Canadian Security Intelligence Service Director David Vigneault in preparation for a meeting he had with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau earlier this year,” claims CBC.
