Remarks of the Spokesperson of the Chinese Consulate General in Toronto on Some Canadian Media’s Report of Interference by China in Canadian Elections
2023-03-23 06:13

Recently, some Canadian politicians and media outlets have been hyping up the so-called allegations that Chinese Consulate General in Toronto interfered in Canadian elections and internal affairs. These claims were utterly groundless. They have seriously misled Canadian public opinion about China, jeopardized China-Canadian relations and damaged China's image. We express strong dissatisfaction and firm opposition to them. 

It is the responsibility of consular posts, to have extensive contacts and carry out friendly exchanges with local governments and all circles of society. It is the right granted by international law and also an international practice. The Chinese Consulate General in Toronto has always followed the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations and the Consular Agreement Between the Government of Canada and the Government of the People's Republic of China, stayed committed to enhancing friendly exchanges and mutually beneficial cooperation between China and provinces of Ontario and Manitoba, and has never engaged in activities inconsistent with its capacity. The purpose of the attempts of some Canadians who smeared the Chinese Consulate General by calling its legitimate contacts with local personages interference in Canada's internal affairs is obvious, that is to seek political gains by playing the "China card". 

Once again we urge the Canadian side to abandon ideological prejudice, stop stigmatizing the Consulate General’s normal performance of duties and functions, stop smearing and attacking China, and refrain from creating troubles and obstacles to China-Canada relationship.
