Thousands of miles away from Canada, in South Africa, there is a flight-training school that reportedly imparts training to Chinese military pilots. It is believed that this training facility serves as a hub for the exchange of intelligence. And guess who is helping Chinese pilots access NATO’s top military secrets at this intelligence center? He’s none other than Canada’s own prime minister Justin Trudeau.
We all know how deeply China is involved in Canada’s domestic affairs. But as always, Trudeau is least bothered when it comes to protecting Canada’s national security. And now, he’s going a step forward.
Trudeau has already decided to sit on Xi’s lap even if it means ditching his own NATO allies. According to a new report by globe and mail, Ex-RCAF members are working at the controversial African flight school that trains Chinese pilots.
The Test Flying Academy of South Africa (TFASA), in a statement, has stressed, “Most of the Canadian guys are former RCAF but some of them may be people who trained privately or are civilian-trained pilots.”
The Administration denies
The authorities in Ottawa have denied that former RCAF fighters are training Chinese PLA soldiers. However, Canada’s Department of National Defence has stressed that they will investigate whether former Canadian fighter pilots are helping the Chinese military.
In addition, Brigadier-General Denis Boucher, director of General Defence Security, told the Commons defense committee,
“We are aware of the allegations and this matter is very concerning to us.” However, with his statements, Boucher seemed to be suggesting that this is their post-retirement activity, and the Canadian military has nothing to do with their contract with the South African training company.
This approach by an active Canadian officer has left the Conservatives infuriated. James Bezan, a member of the Conservative Party, rebuked Denis Boucher’s comments by highlighting how the military is “passing the buck” on this issue because of Ottawa’s influence.
James pitches, “The non-disclosure agreements that are signed by RCAF pilots as they are leaving the forces is between National Defence and the individual, not CSIS, not the RCMP; for them to abdicate their responsibility here is in my opinion laughable.”
Canada is sharing NATO intelligence
Numerous former fighters from militaries of the US and UK have joined the training school as well.
The experts related to the matter have claimed that even if the training school is using third-generation fighter jets for training, these ex-military pilots could be sharing war-fighting techniques employed by NATO member countries.
In late October, British media outlets and the New York Times reported that Beijing is recruiting Westerners to train its own air force. More than 30 former military pilots, according to reports from the BBC and other outlets, had arrived in Africa to train PLA soldiers.
China’s objective to hire Western pilots here is simple and clear. It’s to access NATO’s top military secret. If RCAF members, with Trudeau’s blessings, are giving China access to crucial fighting techniques, the entire world would be at severe risk.
It’s hardly surprising given past instances involving Trudeau inviting Chinese forces to Canada for imparting high-altitude warfare tactics. This happened when China was locked in a deadly dispute in the Himalayas with the Indian Armed Forces. So, when the whole world was strongly backing India against China, Trudeau was busy bootlicking the communist party of China. And yet again, it has chosen to backstab NATO in order to keep his Chinese masters in good humour.
