Prime
 
Minister 
 
Stephen
 
Harper 
 
will
 
visit
 
China
 
next
 
month
 
promoting
 
the
 
sale
 
of
 
Canadian
 
oil
 
to
 
China
 
and
 
according
 
to
 
media
 
reports,
 
seeking
 
more
 
Chinese
 
investment
 
in
 
Canadian
 
energy
 
projects.
 
Harper 
 
will
 
also
 
be
 
seeking
 
to
 
advance
 
the
 
government’s
 
plan
 
to
 
join
 
the
 
US
 
backed
 
Asia
Pacific
 
free
 
trade
 
agreement
 
known
 
as
 
the
 
Trans
Pacific
 
Partnership.

The
 
media
 
speculates
 
that
 
the
 
trip
 
represents
 
a
 
change
 
in
 
the
 
Harper 
 
Government’s
 
heretofore
 
hostile
 
attitude
 
to
 
China.
 
During
 
the
 
January
 
2006
 
federal
 
election
 
campaign,
 
desperate
 
to
 
garner 
 
all
 
right
wing
 
anti
communist
 
voters
 
available,
 
Harper 
 
on
 
several
 
occasions
 
denounced
 
China’s
 
“human
 
rights
 
record”
 
implying
 
that
 
it
 
must
 
change
 
before
 
he
 
would
 
visit
 
and
 
China
Canadian
 
relations
 
could
 
improve.
 
As
 
soon
 
as
 
he
 
achieved
 
a
 
Parliamentary
 
majority
 
the
 
rhetoric
 
cooled
 
and
 
diplomatic
 
channels
 
between
 
Canada
 
and
 
China
 
began
 
to
 
open
 
up.
 
Does
 
this
 
cooling
 
of
 
rhetoric
 
represent
 
a
 
change
 
in
 
the
 
Harper 
 
Government’s
 
strategic
 
view
 
of
 
China
 
and
 
the
 
struggle
 
underway
 
for 
 
US
 
dominance
 
over 
 
rivals
 
in
 
the
 
Asian
Pacific
 
region?
 
On
 
December 
 
07,
 
2011
 
standing
 
next
 
to
 
President
 
Obama
 
announcing
 
a
 
new
 
border 
 
security
 
deal
 
between
 
Canada
 
and
 
the
 
USA
 
the
 
Prime
 
Minister 
 
said:
 
“What
 
threatens
 
the
 
security
 
and
 
well
being 
 
of 
 
the
 
United
 
States
 
threatens
 
the
 
security
 
and
 
well
being 
 
of 
 
Canada…Canada
 
has
 
no
 
friends
 
among 
 
 America's
 
enemies.”

One
 
wonders
 
why
 
some
 
journalist
 
or 
 
opposition
 
member 
 
of
 
Parliament
 
not
 
asked
 
the
 
Prime
 
Minister 
 
as
 
he
 
heads
 
for 
 
China
 
in
 
February;
 
is
 
China
 
an
 
enemy
 
or 
 
friend
 
of
 
the
 
USA?
 
Harper’s
 
statement
 
in
 
Washington
 
regarding
 
Canada’s
 
friends
 
and
 
enemies
 
has
 
to
 
be
 
considered
 
in
 
the
 
light
 
of
 
what
 
the
 
USA
 
is
 
saying
 
about
 
friends
 
and
 
enemies
 
in
 
the
 
Asian
Pacific.
 
Here
 
is
 
what
 
President
 
Obama
 
said
 
to
 
the
 
Australian
 
Parliament
 
last
 
November 
 
regarding
 
US
 
strategic
 
aims
 
in
 
the
 
Asian
Pacific
 
region
 
that
 
contained
 
specific
 
reference
 
to
 
China.
 
In
 
fact
 
it
 
would
 
not
 
be
 
an
 
exaggeration
 
to
 
consider 
 
the
 
speech
 
a
 
statement
 
of
 
US
 
policy
 
in
 
the
 
region
 
regarding
 
the
 
rise
 
of
 
China:

“As
 
President,
 
I
 
have
 
therefore
 
made
 
a
 
deliberate
 
and
 
strategic
 
decision
as
 
a
 
Pacific
 
nation,
 
the
 
United
 
States
 
will
 
play
 
a
 
larger 
 
and
 
long 
term
 
role
 
in
 
shaping 
 
this
 
region
 
and
 
its
 
future,
 
by
 
upholding 
 
core
 
principles
 
and
 
in
 
close
 
partnership
 
with
 
allies
 
and
 
friends.
 
“Let
 
me
 
tell
 
you
 
what
 
this
 
means.
 
“First,
 
we
 
seek
 
security,
 
which
 
is
 
the
 
foundation
 
of 
 
peace
 
and
 
prosperity.
 
We
 
stand
 
for 
 
an
 
international
 
order 
 
in
 
which
 
the
 
rights
 
and
 
responsibilities
 
of 
 
all
 
nations
 
and
 
people
 
are
 
upheld.
 
Where
 
international
 
law
 
and
 
norms
 
are
 
enforced.
 
Where
 
commerce
 
and
 
freedom
 
of 
 
navigation
 
are
 
not
 
impeded.
 
Where
 
emerging 
 
powers
 
contribute
 
to
 
regional
 
security,
 
and
 
where
 
disagreements
 
are
 
resolved
 
peacefully.
 
“That
 
is
 
the
 
future
 
we
 
seek.
 
“Now,
 
I
 
know
 
that
 
some
 
in
 
this
 
region
 
have
 
wondered
 
about
 
 America's
 
commitment
 
to
 
upholding 
 
these
 
principles.
 
So
 
let
 
me
 
address
 
this
 
directly.
 
“As
 
the
 
United
 
States
 
puts
 
our 
 
fiscal
 
house
 
in
 
order,
 
we
 
are
 
reducing 
 
our 
 
spending.
 
 And
 
yes,
 
after 
 
'a
 
decade
 
of 
 
extraordinary
 
 growth
 
in
 
our 
 
military
 
budgets
and
 
as
 
we
 
definitively
 
end
 
the
 
war 
 
in
 
Iraq,
 
and
 
begin
 
to
 
wind
 
down
 
the
 
war 
 
in
 
 Afghanistan
we
 
will
 
make
 
some
 
reductions
 
in
 
defence
 
spending.
 
“As
 
we
 
consider 
 
the
 
future
 
of 
 
our 
 
armed
 
forces,
 
we
 
have
 
begun
 
a
 
review
 
that
 
will
 
identify
 
our 
 
most
 
important
 
strategic
 
interests
 
and
 
 guide
 
our 
 
defence
 
priorities
 
and
 
spending 
 
over 
 
the
 
coming 
 
decade.
 
“So
 
here
 
is
 
what
 
this
 
region
 
must
 
know.
 
“As
 
we
 
end
 
today's
 
wars,
 
I
 
have
 
directed
 
my
 
national
 
security
 
team
 
to
 
make
 
our 
 
presence
 
and
 
mission
 
in
 
the
 
 Asia
 
Pacific
 
a
 
top
 
priority.
 
 As
 
a
 
result,
 
reductions
 
in
 
US
 
defence
 
spending 
 
will
 
not
I
 
repeat,
 
will
 
not
come
 
at
 
the
 
expense
 
of 
 
the
 
 Asia
 
Pacific.
 
“My
 
 guidance
 
is
 
clear.
 
“As
 
we
 
plan
 
and
 
budget
 
for 
 
the
 
future,
 
we
 
will
 
allocate
 
the
 
resources
 
necessary
 
to
 
maintain
 
our 
 
strong 
 
military
 
presence
 
in
 
this
 
region.
 
“We
 
will
 
preserve
 
our 
 
unique
 
ability
 
to
 
project
 
power 
 
and
 
deter 
 
threats
 
to
 
peace.
 
We
 
will
 
keep
 
our 
 
commitments,
 
including 
 
our 
 
treaty
 
obligations
 
to
 
allies
 
like
 
 Australia.
