To the editor:
Last year the Canadian federal government thought it would be a good idea to allow the sale of Retirement Concepts, which owns 21 retirement homes in B.C., to Anbang, which is a large Chinese insurance company with murky ownership.
Recently Anbang has been taken over by the Government of China. So B.C. seniors are now being taken care of by the Government of China.
Our Federal Government at this moment is deciding whether to allow the purchase of Aecon by a Chinese state-owned company.
Aecon is a large Canadian construction firm which has major contracts to build the $10 billion Site C dam project.
This is our governments working for our benefit? It seems to me more like they’re working for China’s benefit.
