OTTAWA (LifeSiteNews) – Canada’s Armed Forces (CAF) disclosed dozens of incidents in recent weeks involving Chinese fighter jets hazardously stalking Canadian surveillance planes.

According to a June 1 press release from the CAF, Chinese jets from the People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) have been repeatedly “buzzing” Canadian CP-140 Aurora planes, which are taking part in a United Nations mission over international waters.

“In these interactions, PLAAF aircraft did not adhere to international air safety norms. These interactions are unprofessional and/or put the safety of our RCAF personnel at risk,” the CAF noted.

“Such interactions, which occur in international airspace during UN-sanctioned missions, are of concern and of increasing frequency. These occurrences have also been addressed through diplomatic channels.”

According to a Global News report from June 1, various sources from the CAF as well as from some in the federal government revealed that in some instances Canadian pilots were given the “middle finger” midair by Chinese pilots.

The Chinese aircraft are said to have flown as close as 20-100 feet from Canadian planes, which is close enough to make eye contact, according to military officials.

Charles Burton, who serves as a senior fellow at the Macdonald-Laurier Institute in Ottawa, said those distances are “scary close at those high speeds” and could lead to a “disaster in a crash.”

“You do it too much, and eventually, sometime, it’s going to go wrong,” he added.

Burton noted that he is “puzzled as to why China would take the risk of fomenting an international incident that could lead to extremely heightened tensions if the Chinese aircraft leads to loss of Canadian life.”

He added that the government of the Chinese Communist regime is “not responding to Canadian concerns” to “rein in this kind of adventurism” is “very concerning.”

The CP-140 Aurora planes are taking part in drills dubbed “Operation Neon.” According to Canada’s Department of National Defence (DND), there have been at least 60 incidents involving Chinese aircraft hounding Canadian planes.

“In some instances, the (Canadian) aircrew felt sufficiently at risk,” a DND spokesperson noted.

At a time of global instability, nuclear tensions and war in Europe, the US Armed Forces have embarrassed themselves by taking a time-out to promote "Pride Month" among the watching world.

This wrongheaded preoccupation with the LGBT ideology across society is weakening our country in a number of ways, not least as it undermines the bedrock of society - the family.

It's time to tell the Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin, that we have had enough LGBT propaganda in the armed forces.

SIGN the petition - remind the Secretary of Defense that "Pride Month" only makes us weaker.

Marking the start of Gay Pride Month this week, the US Marines tweeted an image of a military helmet with 6 bullets in LGBT rainbow colors and the words "ready to serve" written on it.

Many responses highlighted the foolishness of an army, who wish to be feared, promoting such ideologies.

This comparison of recruitment videos from the Chinese, Russian and US armies shows how the LGBT ideology has infiltrated our country and taken military focus away from strength on the battlefield. 

How can the U.S. be respected as a super-power by our enemies if we continue to make our armed forces more effeminate, being prouder of the rainbow flag than the Stars and Stripes? 

The woke agenda of normalizing LGBT behaviors among children, adults and the armed forces is a war on reality, as more and more young people find themselves confused about their gender, their attractions, and even what the purpose of sex is. 

To understand how pervasive the LGBT ideology is, consider this: only 1.3% of those born before 1946 identified as LGBT in March 2021, compared to a whopping 15% of young people born between 1997-2002.

Mainstream media, educational institutions, politicians, and even some of the armed forces are conditioning the public to believe this is normal and healthy - it's not.

While all people must be respected, not all behaviors should be celebrated or condoned, lest society become decadent, degenerate and too selfish to make sacrifices.

SIGN the petition to remind the Secretary of Defense that he serves the Stars and Stripes, not the rainbow flag.

The need for virtue both in society and the armed forces is great, in order to strengthen this country's ability to choose what is good and defend it. 

In choosing to promote sexual behaviors and gender identities that are not based in nature, the armed forces have chosen vice instead of virtue.

Promoting the sexual revolution and other fashionable trends will have consequences, one of them being the decline of true and good men and women willing to stand by their families, their country and their flag during times of hardship.

Tell the Secretary of Defense that time-tested values matter, and the LGBT ideology should not be promoted.

Thank you for taking the time to sign our petition.

This resulted in the pilots having to “quickly modify their own flight path in order to increase separation and avoid a potential collision with the intercepting aircraft.”

The missions involving the CP-140 Aurora took place from April 26 to May 26 “to support the implementation of United Nations Security Council sanctions imposed against North Korea.”

Tensions between the Chinese Communist regime and Canada have increased over the past few years, most notably after Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou was detained in Canada on fraud charges.

Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor, or the “two Canadian Michaels,” for months were detained by the Chinese government in what most regarded as a retaliatory measure for Canada’s arrest of Huawei’s Wanzhou. All three were released last year to their homelands.

Canada recently banned Huawei as well as ZTE from the nation’s telecommunications systems over security concerns.

Also of late, Canadian MPs voted to revive a special committee concerned with Canada-China relations.

It should be noted that the Liberal Party under Prime Minister Justin Trudeau voted against the creation of the committee.

Trudeau famously said a few years ago that he has an “admiration” for China’s “basic dictatorship.”

As for China, in recent weeks it has upped its military presence worldwide, notably in the Taiwan area, amid rising global tensions brought on by the Ukraine-Russia war.
