Unless you are a voracious consumer of the news, you have likely not heard of one of the biggest national security failures to have ever occurred in Canada. The RCMP are investigating, but they won’t say much about any of what it is they are doing or the dramatic exposure to Canada. In July 2019, Dr. Xiangguo Qiu and her husband Keding Cheng were removed from Canada’s only Level 4 microbiology lab in Winnipeg for what was described as a policy breach. In January of 2020 they were officially terminated from the lab and their security clearance, the highest available in Canada, was removed. A level 4 biomedical virology lab is equipped to deal with and research the most serious and deadly diseases to affect humans and animals. What we do know is precious little considering the implications. Dr. Xiangguo Qiu sent several specimens of viruses including the frightening ebola virus to the microbiology lab in Wuhan, China. We know that Dr. Xiangguo Qiu and her husband are Chinese nationals and are believed to be back in China, beyond the reach of Canadian justice. The national security implications are enormous yet the RCMP while admitting their investigation, isn’t telling the country what the exposure is, not only to Canada, but to the world. Iain Stewart, President of the Public Health Agency of Canada which runs the lab in Winnipeg, appeared before the Parliamentary Special Committee on Canada/China relations in March. Let’s say he was less than forthcoming with answers to the committee. He was given until April 20,...
The legacy media have really outdone themselves for their unwillingness to do their jobs with the situation with the unmarked graves found outside former residential schools. Headlines screamed “Mass graves!” And “genocide” prematurely finding fault long before sufficient information came to light. The “mass graves” were just cemeteries placed on the property of the residential schools and often they represented the only cemetery in or near the small villages nearby. The local native bands knew of the location of the cemeteries. As to whether the graves were unmarked, it is more than likely they were marked with white wooden crosses as was the custom in those days. Wooden crosses don’t stand up well to the ravages of Canadian winters. So in 2021 the subject became totally misrepresented by the media as unmarked graves. They have no idea if the graves in those cemeteries were initially marked and their markings degraded with the passage of time. As far as the ludicrous claim by the legacy media that it was some sort of genocide fails to note that the vast majority of deaths that occurred in residential schools were from tuberculosis, as it also was in cities and towns across the country in the days before a vaccine was developed. The second largest cause of death was small pox for exactly the same reason. But genocide it was not. Let’s also not forget that the residential school system was formed in 1883 with an agreement between the federal government and the Catholic Church with a...

And only a handful of men in this murky world of extremely powerful criminals had organizations capable of laundering more than $10 billion annually. (Global News)
