And here we go if anyone believes this is what is going to save Canada and make it boom again, guess again and don't let the pipedream drag you down.

Liberals to unveil ‘ambitious green agenda’ in throne speech, Trudeau says



What the pandemic has to do with a green economy is beyond me


This is exactly what you get when you decide to elect a failed, part time, substitute drama teacher to lead a nation

Trade tribunal to review Canada’s deal with Chinese state company for X-ray scanners

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) says it is reviewing a contract between the federal government and Nuctech that would see the Chinese state-owned security company install and run X-ray scanners in Canada's embassies around the world.

In a statement emailed to Global News on Wednesday, CITT confirmed it is conducting an inquiry into the procurement, and said it was prompted by a complaint filed by KPrime Technologies.

Global News reached out to KPrime Technologies — which had also submitted a bid for the contract — to determine the nature of the complaint, but did not hear back by time of publication.

The CITT says the tribunal only conducts an inquiry after receiving and accepting a complaint.

According to the statement, the tribunal's reviews are "limited by law to determining whether a procurement was conducted in compliance with the Government of Canada's obligations pursuant to various major applicable trade agreements."

The Tribunal "considers issues such as whether bids were evaluated fairly and according to the stated terms of the procurement process itself," according to the CITT website.

In July, Ottawa posted details of the Nuctech deal, which would see the Beijing-based company install X-ray scanning equipment and software in 170 Canadian embassies, consulates and high commissions worldwide.

According to the National Post, which first reported on Nuctech’s new deal with Global Affairs Canada, the July 2020 contract has an estimated value of $6.8 million.

Documents do not confirm that figure, but confirm a “contract award date” of July 15.

Global News found that since 2017, Nuctech has been awarded four border security and customs warehouse contracts valued at $6.5 million to provide scanners and lab equipment to Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), according to procurement documents.

This is despite mounting concerns among some national security experts about Nuctech’s growing access to sensitive facilities worldwide.

Founded in 1997 by the son of former Chinese President Hu Jintao, Nuctech has accumulated a number of sensitive airport and border security infrastructure contracts around the world.

According to the Nuctech website, the company has customers in 160 countries.

However, Nuctech has also garnered criticism over alleged corruption in its business dealings in Africa.

And after news of the deal broke, Canada's Foreign Affairs Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne promised to review the "standing offer" from the company.

“We are currently looking into the offer with Nuctech Company to provide some security screening equipment in our missions abroad,” Champagne said in a statement.

Champagne said he had also directed officials at Global Affairs Canada to review its purchasing practices regarding security equipment and to "continue reviewing the security of our missions around the world."

In a statement emailed to Global News, a spokesperson for Nuctech said the allegations made against the company and its system are “inaccurate” and “intentionally obscure facts and delegitimize the transparent and fair tender process” of Public Works and Government Services Canada.

“We trust that the current CITT process will adjudicate fairly and will find that the complaint from our competitor, specifically the false information provided about Nuctech, is without merit,” the statement reads.

CIBC reporting Canadians are sitting on the largest cash hoard of all time while at the same time 42% of Canadians are concerned with meeting debt obligations.

Guessing this is what is referred to as a K economy. Never been better and never been worse. Just a matter of which side of the fence you are on

Ya & there has been made mentioned that all these "savings" could be used as stimulus. What do you think they mean by that? Cancel the TFSA & force people to "use it or lose it?" Does it mean cancelling RRSP's for the same reason? Freeland did the mentioning but didn't elaborate which makes me extremely nervous. What are they conniving?

There is an old saying, "the solution to pollution is dilution". It applies to a nation's debt in the same way.

It's too bad "woke math" isn't a prerequisite for grade 6 while belief in math (aka Science) is.

175 years ago it was Masons Vs. Jesuits.

When did either become powerless and who won this time?

I think it's the Jesuits. You?

Eco and Social Dogma abounds.

Like we need an International Trade Tribunal or embassies in 170 countries around the globe. Let's try working from home for a while and see if it makes any difference. Those ambassador jobs sound pretty cushy.

Canada basically deals with one country, everything else is just smoke, mirrors, and photo ops.

We have all those embassies to recruit future Liberal voters.

Checking my investment account when it asks which market there are only two choices. Canada or USA.

What exactly do the ambassadors of the other 169 countries do?

$1.2 trillion and growing. Maybe we get a budget this year.

What's new?. Canada has been selling itself out since wealthy Canadians decided to set up companies off shore in the 70's. If that's not the worst of it, GM got 9 Billion of Canadian tax dollars free, then promptly took it with them to Cancun instead of circulating it within Canada. (As for myself as PM, on that news citizenship would have been revoked promptly. The execs can have their retirement of sunny comfort, but on order of seizure of assets,cash,passports,etc. No presedent in law you say? Gimme time...... ).
We could have had a few squadrons of Canadian made interceptors that already scared the geebees out of the hostile world with our new technology. Step aside S Korea and Singapore, we could have a nation of quality ships and builders that delivered their orders "ahead of time"(pfizer heads up!) to save Lend Lease. We can manufacture our own autos. If I recall, it was our help that stompted out of few diseases in the past also. What happened to keeping up our competativeness. We were the best at it.
