Series title: 1000 lies against China (PART 1 of 1000)
MSM and politicians claim that a Chinese ambassador threatened Canadians in Hong Kong:
Meanwhile, Erin O’Toole, the leader of Canada’s main opposition Conservative party, said Monday that Cong had threatened Canadians in Hong Kong and called on the envoy to either apologize or leave.

This is what he actually said:
...certainly will embolden those violent criminals. So if the Canadian side really cares about the stability and prosperity in HK and really cares about the good health and safety of those 300k Canadian passport holders in HK and large number of Canadian companies operating in HK as they are, you should support those efforts to fight violent crimes. Those efforts to make sure the one country two systems is more steadily and comprehensively implemented in HK. And that is exactly what the National Security Law in HK as they are is meant to be. So I would like to suggest that people here take an objective and fair view of what's happened in HK and make sure not to interfere in those domestic fears of China, so as prevent further damage to our bilateral relationship.
So he's saying that the National Security Law in HK would protect Canadian businesses and citizens from violent rioters. Last time I checked, protecting citizens is not the same as threatening them.
The HK protest itself is another topic. Not for this thread.
$5000 reward is for proving that Western media and astroturfs aren't producing mass lies about China in this 1000 part series.
