“A deepened and broadened relationship with China is a priority for the Government of Canada,” Krista Humick, spokesperson for the foreign ministry, said in an earlier statement”

A controversial March 2020 grant for $830,000 to do rapid testing research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the lab suspected as the source of the coronavirus, was recently uncovered by Rebel News.
