Selling off investments to China is a bad move

I am very troubled with the way China is acting, financially and politically

Editor, The Times:

I submit to you a copy of a recent email message sent to the Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper. If you deem it to be of local interest, you may print it in the Times. Incidentally, I did receive a return message from M. F. Bustos, manager, executive correspondence services for the Prime Ministers’ office. I was informed that my message was forwarded to Honorable Christian Paradis, Minister of Industry.

My message to the prime minister follows:

Dear Mr. Harper:

I am very troubled with the way China is acting, financially and politically, by their aggressive siphoning off of manufacturing sectors around the world. To compound this serious trend, they are buying up natural resources in a great many countries.

If you have read this far you probably have an uneasy feeling that I disapprove, very strongly, of your recent move in selling off a large oil sands investment to China. The publicity, building up to your final cave-in to China, has troubled me for some time. I did voice opinion against the proposal and even signed an online petition against it. I know that there are many other Canadians who believe as I do.

A question here for you: Do you not have advisers that are aware of China’s devious intentions in destroying the western world’s democratic way of life? Do you not understand that you were elected in a democratic nation to govern under the rules of democracy?

Please, if there is any way possible to void the Nexon deal with China, do so. We should not have other nation’s governments owning, and controlling, our natural resources. That is a very dangerous move.
