Spadina-Fort York MP Kevin Vuong says he knows because it has happened to him.

And to people in his riding.

He also says this tactic of using sex to put people in a vulnerable position of being controlled or having the information used against them is putting the country’s democracy at risk. 

Vuong says he participated in a two-hour briefing session with Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) agents this year over a possible Chinese communist party “honey trap” plan he believes may have been part of a false sexual assault claim against him.  

And the 33-year-old, who ran as a Liberal candidate in the 2021 election but was thrown out of the party and now sits as an Independent, says communist interference in Canadian life is real and must be rooted out.

“For God’s sake they have set up police stations in our country,” Vuong told the Toronto Sun Thursday morning. “They are intimidating people including people in my riding.” 

He says he knows because he has been a victim. 

“They are running many other tactics including the honey trap stuff. That is a fact,” Vuong told me. “I believe I am just one of many victims – the difference being I am in a different position to raise these issues and by God I am going to do it.” 

We apologize, but this video has failed to load.

While Vuong, a member of the Canadian Armed Forces Naval Reserve, has been silent on these issues for the past 18 months, he says now that the country is aware of the concern of foreign interference and there is a special rapporteur looking into it, he feels it is time to air it out.

Speaking on Newstalk 1010 with John Moore, Vuong said putting the pieces together of what happened to him, he now believes he was set up in a sting to defeat and later remove him from sitting as MP for the riding which encompasses Toronto’s famous Chinatown. 

His original charge for an alleged sexual assault on a female was withdrawn by a female Crown in front of a female judge in 2019 “but just four days before the election,” the allegation surfaced again and put him in a position of losing much of his local volunteer help and destroying his reputation.  

“All I know is I was just trying to find someone to start my life with,” he says. Instead, there was a “false allegation against me (of) sexual assault” which he “trusted the system to find me innocent” of, which it did.

Vuong says he is constrained about what he can speak about from his meeting with CSIS and isn’t able to discuss whether his feeling is the whole thing from the beginning was a set up or that the information about the withdrawn charge coming out on the eve of the election was the issue – or both. 

But he did say a planned “25-minute” session with CSIS turned into two hours.

The Globe and Mail and Global TV have over the past few months quoted anonymous intelligence whistleblowers on the topic of Chinese election interference. Don Valley North MP Han Dong, who was once the Liberal MPP for Fort-York Spadina in the Wynne government, has denied any involvement in any of the allegations directed towards him and is taking legal action.

Conservative Wellington-Halton Hills MP Michael Chong has complained that the Liberal government did not let him know that CSIS believed he was a target of communist Chinese agents, but Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Wednesday he was given the impression they did not think it was a case that was considered overly serious. 

CSIS has not yet returned a request for a comment on Vuong’s new claims. Vuong did say he felt CSIS was taking the matter very seriously. 

“They had some pretty intent questions when I was taking them through (it),” he says.

He still won the election and withstood pressures from the Liberals to resign and chose to sit independently. But he did notice communist influence against him in 2018 when he was running for Toronto city council and was approached to drop out in favour of a more senior Chinese Canadian who was closer aligned to the Chinese power structure.

He says he refused, which ruffled some feathers.

Vuong believes his family background of his Chinese parents being forced to run from the communists in Vietnam is part of the reason for him being targeted. He says while he’s Vietnamese culturally, he is of Chinese descent and speaks fluent Cantonese. But he and his family have always had a mistrust of the Communist Party of China. 

“I think the Chinese (Communist) party, or their agents, realized with someone like me, with my family history and my track record of standing up for democracy” which includes “signing up to serve and protect this country and everything we stand for, they were not going to be able to compromise me and turn me into a sympathizer.” 

Vuong says they found out “Kevin is not going to be that good old Chinese kid who is going to follow the elders, listen to them and advance their agenda. I was not going to be co-opted.” 

So, he says, they found another way.
