Comment: To Mr. Xi – Transparency and accountability are the foundation of democracy. In democracy, there is no room for public officials to hold secret conversations that cannot be “leaked” to the public. This would be inappropriate. So please, stop corrupting our prime minister. As a foreign leader, you should restrain yourself from scolding our politicians and from interfering in Canada’s politics. We, the Canadian citizens, the voters and the taxpayers have that right, not you. This is fundamental.
