Chinese soldiers marchingAmid confirmed reports that Chinese military troops trained on Canadian soil three years ago, a conservative activist questions the honesty of his government over the now-cancelled partnership.

Canada’s national defense officials cancelled what they called “observer-status activities” after 2018, when Chinese Liberation Army troops participated in winter survival training exercises.

The Toronto Sun was among news outlets reporting on the controversial partnership which dates back to 2013, a Dept. of National Defence spokesman told the newspaper.  

“We do not train with the PLDA,” the spokesman insisted, referring to observers versus armed combat training.

Rushfeldt

Brian Rushfeldt, a former executive director of Canada Family Action, tells One News Now there should have never been Chinese troops in his country.

“There is something much more than just training in winter that's going on here to even have those troops on our soil,” he warns. “I actually think that there's spy stuff going on because they walk beside our Canadian troops asking questions, talking, seeing what we do, working with our equipment, and spying and seeing what's going on."

According to Rushfeldt, his fellow citizens should not trust their government’s insistence that it ended the partnership with the China’s military.
