I really enjoy reading her posts and liked when she came back, fresh eyes looking at the discussion,The board is slow enough without fracturing conversations in 2-5 different directions. Opening up for posters like Hoid, MHZ and even at times yourself to run to different threads and move the goal posts a touch until it isn't worth responding to.

p.s. If I kept my work files this way the auditors would fire my ass

Scheer slams Trudeau after ambassador fired

OTTAWA - After a week in which he twice weighed in on a high-stakes extradition case, John McCallum is out as Canada's ambassador to China — although for Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer, the damage has already been done.
"It should never have come to this," Scheer tweeted Saturday, after the prime minister's office released a statement announcing McCallum's resignation at the request of Justin Trudeau.
That move came just hours after McCallum was quoted in a Vancouver newspaper saying it would be "great for Canada" if the United States dropped its extradition request for Meng Wanzhou, the Huawei executive who was detained in Vancouver last month.
McCallum told StarMetro Vancouver on Friday that if the U.S. and China reach an agreement on Meng's case, the deal should include the release of Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor, two Canadians currently detained in China.
"We have to make sure that if the U.S. does such a deal, it also includes the release of our two people. And the U.S. is highly aware of that," McCallum told the Star.
That comment followed a statement McCallum issued Thursday, saying he misspoke earlier in the week when he discussed Meng's case with a group of Chinese-language journalists in Toronto, listing several arguments he thought could help her with her legal fight against extradition.

Not sure what mcCallum was thinking.

Would not be a bit surprised if he was drunk at the time.

Also may point to a diminishing of skills when a politician is out of the normal to and fro of political debate.

Trudeau vs Xi Jinping. Or, hypocritical asshat vs hypocritical asshat. And why the f*ck are we even dealing with the drug smuggling assholes in the fist place? The govt of the PRC is NOT a legitimate govt, it is a drug smuggling criminal organization and the sooner Canada (and any other country with a fentanyl crisis) calls them out on it, the better.
They are using the illegal flow of fentanyl from China as leverage to gain political concessions in Canada. But what does this govt do? Plays right along with the stupid f*cking game.
And considering that diplomats aren't subject to Customs inspections, Chinese diplomats are the perfect fentanyl mules.
