Following the recent announcement of a lawsuit against them for defamation concerning the supposed presence of clandestine Chinese “police stations” in Quebec, the RCMP wanted to confirm that its agents act on the basis of “police stations” in Quebec. “credible” information.

On Wednesday, two Chinese community organizations in the Montreal area and their director announced that they would file a defamation lawsuit against the RCMP after it alleged that clandestine Chinese government police stations were operating from their premises.

The targeted organizations, namely the Chinese Family Service of Greater Montreal and the Center Sino-Québec de la Rive-Sud, were accused of serving as a basis for harassing and intimidating members of the Chinese community in Canada — allegations that the organizations concerned deny.

Last year, the RCMP said it was investigating “alleged Chinese police stations in Quebec” and told reporters that the two community centers were part of the investigation.

These organizations are now claiming more than $4.9 million in compensation, saying the allegations cost them $3.2 million, some of which was lost government funding.

The information communicated to us was sufficiently credible for us to open an investigation, said Mike Duheme, Commissioner of the RCMP, on the show The Scenes of Power.

This is not the first time we have been sued because we let's investigate.

This investigation is still ongoing.

The Center Sino-Québec de la Rive-Sud and its director Xixi Li — who also acts as a municipal councilor in Brossard and as director of Chinese Family Services of Greater Montreal — are also suing the mayor of the municipality, Doreen Assaad, for some of her interventions on Facebook published after the RCMP's allegations were made public. Ms. Li is seeking $49,000 and the organization is seeking $19,000 for damage to their reputation.

The RCMP investigation is part of a broader debate over allegations that the China allegedly interfered in the last two federal elections in Canada, in addition to carrying out espionage and theft of intellectual property.
