Why China prefers Russian gas?

The Chinese authorities decided to stop importing gas from Canada, while buying hydrocarbons from Russia since they consider Moscow a more reliable partner in the supply, Report says, citing Sina. 
According to the newspaper, the quality of the Canadian fuel influenced the decision of the country's leadership. Chinese experts have repeatedly stated that it has worsened recently. However, Canadian suppliers did not respond to the claims.
