地产富豪周建成卷入加拿大政治的方式令人担忧
Concerns raised over Toronto wealthy developer‘s murky relationship with politicians



 
多伦多地产开发商周建成和许多遍布海外的中国富豪一道大力涉及移民国的政治领域。从一名慷慨的自由党捐献者到加国保守党理念推行人,周在加国的政治活动似乎毫不顾及政党之分歧,其目的旨在左右加国华裔群体的政治立场,并为中共利益摇旗呐喊。

Ted Zhou, a wealthy Chinese condo developer in Toronto, has joined the club of wealthy Chinese entrepreneurs who immerse themselves in the politics of the adopted country. From a generous Liberal donor to a zealous Conservative advocate, Zhou’s political donations in Canada seem indiscriminating between political parties but aiming at advocating for Beijing’s interest and influencing Chinese Canadian diaspora. 

周自2013年在加国落地后就开始了在移民国的政治活动并成为加国华人社区的重要人物。他的政治足迹遍布加国多个政党之间,成为加国不同级政府中华裔政客们强有力的支持者。

Zhou seems started his political activities in Canada soon after he landed in his adopted country in 2013 and he has since risen to prominence in the Chinese Canadian communities. He has left a list of footprints across different political parties in Canada, showing strong support for Chinese Canadian political candidates at all levels of Canadian governments.



据《环球邮报》报道,周建成积极参与加国华裔聚集选区的政治参选活动。他向Don Valley North的自由党国会议员谭耕的竞选机构捐赠$400元后又成为该选区保守党省议员柯文彬的高级竞选顾问。他在2015年向万锦於人村联邦自由党机构捐献$1,028元, 在2016年向Ward 21市补选候选人Jack Wang捐赠$500元。

According to the Globe, Zhou involved in election campaigns in Chinese Canadian concentrated ridings. He donated $400 to Liberal MP Geng’s riding association in Don Valley North and then became a senior campaign adviser to the same riding’s PC candidate Vincent Ke; He donated $1,028 to the Markham-Unionville Federal Liberal Association in 2015, and $500 in 2016 to Ward 21 by-election candidate Jack Wang.

周在其政治大转弯改为支持保守党之前,曾向联邦自由党进行大幅度捐款,并参加了2016年特鲁多闪亮登场的花钱见政要的集资晚宴。这场豪门宴一个月后,中国政协委员张斌和亿万富翁牛根生宣布向皮埃尔•埃利奥特•特鲁多基金会和蒙特利尔大学法学院捐款1百万元,包括为特鲁多去世的父亲塑像捐款5万元。



Prior to switching his support to the Conservatives, Zhou made maximum donation to the Liberal party and attended the infamous cash-for-access fundraiser in 2016 featuring PM Trudeau. A month after the fundraiser, Mr. Zhang Bin, a CPPCC member and fellow billionaire Niu Gensheng announced a donation of $1-million to the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation and the University of Montreal Law School, including $50,000 for a statue of the Prime Minister’s late father.

周为推广保守观念而建立的政治网络系统包括从卑诗到阿尔伯塔省到安省的10个组织以及一个称为加拿大华人保守党联合总会的机构。周的政治网络系统受到加国选举机构的质疑,并面临“帮助联邦保守党逃避选举法规“的指控。11月9日该机构在列治文山举办晚宴和集会为联邦保守党拉拢选民。

A political network by Zhou to advocate for Conservative values includes ten organizations from BC to Alberta to Ontario as well as a national organization called the Federation of Chinese Canadian Conservatives (FCCC). His network has raised eyebrows of the Election Commission and faces accusations of supporting the Conservative Party to skirt election laws. On Nov. 9, FCCC held a dinner and rally at Richmond Hill to solicit support for the federal Tories. 



《环邮》还报道称,周担任加拿大莆仙同乡会会长,该同乡会上级机构为旨在引导海外华裔的高级机构中国联合阵线。周是加国隶属中华统一促进会的华裔联合会的名誉主席,统一促进会旨在为“解放台湾”运动争取海外支持。

The Globe also reports that Zhou takes the role as a director of Putian-Xianyou Association of Canada, a federation reports to China’s United Front, a high-level organization whose mission includes guiding overseas Chinese.  Zhou is the honorary chair of the Federation of Chinese Canadians for the Promotion of Chinese National Reunification, which helps facilitate Beijing’s agenda of winning overseas support for bringing Taiwan back to China. 

周建成还与加国政客参议员胡子修和自由党议员谭耕政治往来密切。胡和谭都据报与中国软势力人员建立友好关系。周当时作为加中经贸文化交流促进联合会主席出席了由胡参议员举办的欢迎中国副领事的晚宴。



Zhou has forged close political ties with Canadian politicians – including Senator Victor Oh and Liberal MP Geng Tan – both of whom have reportedly cultivated relationships to the agents of China’s soft power.  As president of the Canada China Economic Trade and Cultural Exchange Promotion Alliance, Zhou attended a welcoming dinner for Chinese deputy consul-general held by Senator Oh. 

在加国逮捕了华为高管,中国扣押了加国前外交官之后,中加关系日益紧张化。在此之际,周的政治活动引起加国安全专家们的担忧。加国前安全情报部长Richard Fadden表示:“周先生与中国共产党之间的关系让人不安。他建议称周可能会被利用来推广中共的旨意。“

Zhou’s political activities have raised concerns among Canada’s security experts at the time when China-Canada tension rises after Canada arrested Huawei exec and China detained a former Canadian diplomat. “Mr. Zhou’s connections to Chinese Communist Party organizations are troubling and suggested he could be used to help promote Beijing’s agenda,” Richard Fadden, a former director of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, told The Globe.
