Right now, the detention of the Chinese national in Canada is a purely legal process, without opportunity for political involvement.

However, before Meng is sent to the USA, there will be an opportunity for the Canada Minister of Justice to exercise political discretion as to whether to carry through with the extradition. But the parameters for denying the extradition are narrow and unlikely applicable in this case.
