Another question that should not go unconsidered is worth asking precisely because neither Prime Minister Stephen Harper, nor NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair, nor Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, for their differing reasons, would want it asked too persistently. As impolite as it may be to put the question in these terms, it is about who should be trusted to keep Canada from the harm that the gluttonous Leninist kleptocracy in Beijing unavoidably causes us all.
