PM Harper in a speech to Chinese business leaders: "Our government believes and has always believed that a mutually-beneficial economic relationship is not incompatible with a good and frank dialogue on fundamental values like freedom, human rights and the rule of law,"
Jack Layton shows that he hates Canada more than he is worried about human rights: "I think you always have to be careful when you live in a glass house when it comes to throwing stones," referring to the questions raised over whether Canada transferred prisoners to Afghan authorities where they were tortured.
Michael Ignatieff:"We've all had a wake up call in Canada about how important China is and Mr. Harper has taken a very long time to wake up," said Ignatieff, who apparently was not awake enough to go through with his own trip to China earlier this year as he was again busy backing down from his election threats.
