Parliament Video: Jenny in the House: Serious concerns about Canada's visa application centre in China

On March 10, 2020, MP Jenny Kwan asked a question in the House of the Prime Minister:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, I have a document that shows the Chinese Communist Party is at the heart of Canada's visa application centre in China. The subcontractor doing this work is a company owned by the Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau. Under Chinese regulations, the chair of the company is the same person as the party's secretary, and the general manager is the deputy secretary. They must execute the will of the party in performing their duties and swear an oath to never betray the party.

If the Prime Minister does not think a Chinese state-owned company should supply X-ray machines for embassies, why should we trust the Chinese Communist Party to run and operate Canada's visa application centres in China?"
