3. According to my sources, CSIS started tracking Han Dong, a former Ontario MPP, in summer 2019. They said CSIS believed that Dong emerged suddenly and suspiciously as a successor to MP Geng Tan as the Liberal candidate for Don Valley North.

5. National security officials also allege that Han Dong, now a sitting MP re-elected in 2021, is 1 of at least 11 Toronto-area riding candidates supported by Beijing in 2019. These officials said CSIS also believes Dong is a witting affiliate in China’s election interference. […]
9. On our broadcast tonight I explained how CSIS believes former Ontario Liberal Trade Minister Michael Chan promoted Han Dong to take the riding nomination, and Michael Chan is a top target in ongoing CSIS investigations, according to sources with knowledge.
