Reply from Special Committee on Canada-China Relations member MP John Williamson
18 May 2021
Good evening John,
Thanks very much for reaching out. My Conservative colleague, MP Kenny Chiu, recently introduced legislation in Parliament to curb foreign influence in Canada. The Epoch Times covered MP Chiu's legislation in more detail through the following piece: https://www.theepochtimes.com/mp-seeks-to-establish-registry-to-counter-foreign-interference-in-canada_3776242.html. The original text can be found here: https://parl.ca/DocumentViewer/en/43-2/bill/C-282/first-reading.
If MP Chiu's legislation does not pass in this minority Parliament a future Conservative government would adopt it. It's a technically sound strategy to counter this threat and I hope you are supportive of it.
John Williamson, MP New Brunswick Southwest
