Did the Cold War ever really end?

We're so busy bending over backwards to acknowledge everybody else's cultural identities... we've started to lose sight of our own...

At least five countries are surreptitiously recruiting future political prospects in universities, he said. Middle East countries are also involved.

But China is the most aggressive, funding university clubs that are managed by people operating out of the embassy or consulates, Fadden said in a recent speech to Canadian police chiefs and security experts in Toronto.

UPDATE: Compassionate, intellectual left responds...
If Canada's national spy agency has any concerns about municipal politicians in B.C. being under the influence of foreign governments, it has not shared them with Vancouver Mayor (and former Dipper MLA) Gregor Robertson, his chief of staff said Wednesday.

"There has been no communication from any order of government or law enforcement agency about this."

"It seems preposterous and ludicrous," said Mike Magee.
Yup... nothing here but rainbows & unicorns... move along, folks.

UPDATE2: BC Liberals attack

The fact is though, this isn't about facts... it's about suckass political correctness...
Some insiders argue Mr. Fadden merely expressed – albeit more pointedly – what has worried CSIS for years. “I was surprised to hear his comments – not what he said, but that he said it,” said Robert Simmonds, past RCMP commissioner.
Which, unfortunately, too often carries the day in fuzzy-bunny Canuckistan.

FROM THE COMMENTS:
I've just finished "The Mitrovkin Archive", which is a slim 700+ page tome (with another 100 of notes) that showed how well the Soviet Union infiltrated Western governments, media, universities, research institutes, etc.

It would be a shock if China wasn't doing likewise.

Hey Neo, hows about we play the game of name that party?

I got some serious cash that says the NDP are probably the hands down winner.

Does the left and the MSM (if that isn't redundant) not realize that China, despite its turn towards capitalism, is still run by the Communist Party?

China is a gimme.You would have to be pretty thick to not think China has her fingers in Canada.Were the second largest country on the planet with large reserves of mineral wealth...untapped.I have my own suspicions on who they are,but ill keep that info to myself.Always let your enemies slip up first.And trust me they always do.Sort of like bank robbers.Give em enough rope and they do hang themselves.

"joshua says... China is a gimme."

china may lose a battle... but they sure don't lose a minute. look at what they're currently doing in africa... where bribery & corruption is an acknowledged fact of life.

i don't even want to think about what they've been doing in the middle east.

it's a brave new world, my friends.

and we're apparently asleep at the switch.

We lost the cold war, any one who has any doubt need only look at who is now living in the one time Canadian PMQs of CFB Baden-Soellingen, or Lahr.

I believe MP's & MPP's swear an oath to the Queen.
Some of those who are under foreign influence might be in a barrel of trouble.
Oops...I forgot, this is Canada...you can get away with anything at least 53 times!

Haven't Chinese nationals already been convicted in the US for commercial espionage, including some very close to national security? It's a given the same thing is happening in Canada.

"frances says... It's a given the same thing is happening in Canada."

any thinking person knows what's actually going on here.

but this isn't about facts... it's about being "sensitive" to other people's cultures... a full-time preoccupation of canada's loony left.

My question to a loony left acquaintance (whose Facebook blurb was "Holy McCarthy, Batgirl": is your problem that you don't think this is happening, you don't think we should investigate, or you don't think we should care?"

I think she "defriended" me in record time...
