A federal judge has just ruled that an agency of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), the Overseas Chinese Affairs Office (OCAO), working in Canada is involved in subversion, intelligence gathering, and surveillance.

The judge made the statement after Canada’s immigration department rejected a naturalized Chinese woman’s attempt to have her parents, one of whom worked as a senior employee for the OCAO, become permanent residents in Canada.

The National Post explains:

But the Chinese government’s Overseas Chinese Affairs Office (OCAO) is involved in espionage that harms Canada’s interests, a Federal Court judge has affirmed in what appears to be a precedent-setting new ruling. […]

Despite its apparently longstanding efforts to influence and monitor Chinese Canadians, the agency has rarely been publicly called-out by authorities here, says Charles Burton, a former diplomat in Beijing and senior fellow with the Macdonald-Laurier Institute.

According to the National Post, Canadian politicians have been reluctant to question CCP’s activities in Canada that specifically target people of Chinese descent. And those, targeted by the CCP, are often too terrified to say anything.

Chinese news media posted instructions to social platforms about how to approach coverage on Ukraine, including a note of China’s need for Russian “support” with Taiwan.” 

“One outlet appeared to accidentally post guidelines on what should and should not be published, while an editor from another outlet weighed in with guidance on language and approaches that he believed necessary in walking a fine line.
