Government of Canada main site blocked in Beijing!

O Canada, my home and native land…what have we done?  All I wanted to do was search the Canadian government staff directory, and low and behold, canada.gc.ca is blocked in Beijing!  Which word was it?  “English?” “French” or…heaven forbid… “français”?.  Was it Prime Minister Harper’s steely blue eyes that set off the censor?  Further testing reveals that some of the subdomains, international.gc.ca and ec.gc.ca all work.  But what’s the deal?  Is this an intential snub?

Furthermore, the website has been blocked for a couple of days, at least…and it’s still not fixed.  The people I contacted at the embassy didn’t seem to know much about it, but maybe I contacted the wrong people, so I won’t blame them.

What’s going on on canada.gc.ca?
