Expel Chinese Diplomats Who Interfere With Free Speech on Canadian Campuses, MP Garnett Genuis Says

Chinese diplomats who are involved in encouraging overseas students to attack free speech on Canadian campuses should be removed from their position, says Conservative MP Garnett Genuis.

“If there is direct, demonstrable involvement by a foreign diplomat interfering in Canadian institutions in a way that is designed to limit the free speech, or intimidate students who attend events, then the folks who do that should no longer be diplomats in Canada,” Genuis said in an interview.

Earlier this month in the House of Commons, Genuis raised the issue of “foreign governments act[ing] to undermine freedom of speech on Canadian campuses,” including an orchestrated campaign of harassment against a Tibetan student leader, and the Chinese Consulate in Toronto praising Chinese students’ disruption of an event highlighting human rights abuses in China.
