The vermin have upped the ante and are now threatening us with “severe consequences”.

https://globalnews.ca/news/4743451/china-consequences-canada-release-huawei-cfo/

Another brilliant move by the Trump administration as this incident is sure to drive a very deep and much needed wedge between us and that evil nation.

Furthermore, anti china sentiment among Canadians which had been steadily rising should now see a huge spike in the face of these vile threats against us.

This arrest is a godsend.

“Break out the champagne for the next open house, because it’s all clear sailing from here. That’s according to the CEO of one of Canada’s largest real estate developers, who declared Canadian real estate achieved a soft landing. The situation is not unlike the US being declared a soft landing in 2006, but just like then – it’s way too early to tell. Here’s what you need for a soft landing, and why Canadian real estate markets aren’t even close at this point”

“King County’s median single-family home price fell to $644,000 in November, all the way from $726,000 in the spring, according to new figures released Thursday by the Northwest Multiple Listing Service. Prices have been falling faster here than anywhere else in the country.
The price drop equals 11.3 percent over six months, more than any May-to-November stretch since such data has been tracked.”

That’s about $850K in CAD.

Metro Vancouver is still at an insane 1.5M and down only 6.6% in 6 months.

Each count carries a maximum sentence of 30 years

Crown has alleged that she “poses a potential flight risk”

SkyCom employees used Huawei email addresses, management were Huawei employees, bank records linked the two companies, and that in effect the two companies were the same

More than 100 people of Chinese ancestry were milling outside the courtroom, which was full (but undoubtedly those coveted seats were likely being resold for whatever the market will bear…)

Well, when you’re economy is hot, rather than increase interest rates beyond historical norms, you should decrease government spending and use those funds to pay down the debt, and hopefully the decreased spending will allow for less rate hikes since rate hikes cause recessions.
Under no circumstances should you cut taxes!! This will stimulate the economy further which will require rate hikes which will cause a recession.

New Zealand becomes third Five Eyes member to ban Huawei from 5G network

https://www.theglobeandmail.com/politics/article-majority-of-five-eyes-intelligence-alliance-bans-huawei-equipment/

The move by New Zealand leaves Canada and Britain as the only Five Eyes members that have not banned wireless carriers from installing Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd.’s 5G technology despite strong pressure from the United States. However, Britain recently did raise security concerns about Chinese-supplied telecommunications equipment from companies such as Huawei.
Under Chinese law, companies in China “must support, co-operate with and collaborate in national-intelligence work” as requested by Beijing, and security experts in the United States and Canada warn that equipment produced by firms such as Huawei could be compromised on behalf of China’s ruling party.

Yup, pretty much sums it up. You can add doing business with North Korea as well. If the trade war heats up this could be Trumps next tactic.
