OTTAWA - The Conservative Party of Canada isn’t denying reports top party officials recently received a delegation from the Communist Party of China in Ottawa – but they aren’t talking about it either.
Repeated calls to Conservative Party president John Walsh and party spokesman Fred DeLorey have gone unanswered since Monday.
The Tories have also clammed up over a congratulatory letter the party sent to the Communist Party on its 90th anniversary.
DeLorey said Monday the party would not comment on the letter.
Chinese media reported that Walsh sent a letter to the Communists Party on July 1 that read, in part, that the Tories “appreciate the Chinese Communist
Party” and would “look forward to further relations between the two parties.”
Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird, when asked Monday whether he was comfortable with Conservative Party executive director Dan Hilton reportedly meeting with Communist Party members, refused to comment.
“Dan Hilton did so you’ll have to ask him,” Baird said.
Baird is currently in China promoting trade relations between the two countries.
