we don't care China, we don't kneel to you

China once again just doing as it pleases, how it pleases regardless of international law and protocol.

Travel & Enter china at your own peril and take your chances, enjoy your anal swab on the way in, we may or may not hear from you again.

Boycott China, for the greater good of every person on this planet.

Hostage "justice"... If they are found guilty, Canada should extradite Meng Wanzhou to stand trial in the US. Better yet, put the Chinese on notice that unless the Canadians are freed, the charges dropped and a public apology issued, they will never see her again. Force and humiliation are the only thing the CCP understands. Any country that wants anything from China needs to understand that it has to be as ruthless as the Chinese govt is willing to be.

@expat

Completely agree. Unfortunately, the Canadians are likely too busy trying to avoid offending each other.

Screw that idea. Canada should extradite Meng Wanzhou to the US if Canada's court system finds based on Canadian law that that is what is appropriate, not for any of those BS reasons.

The whole point that separates democracies like Canada from dictatorships like China is that we (I'm Canadian) respect the rule of law and don't abuse our judicial system like they do. We aren't so weak that we are going to totally demolish centuries old democratic norms just because China kidnapped a couple of Canadians and is subjecting them to an abuse of process.

How long has Meng Wanzhou been under detention? a year? two?

This has nothing to do with the Justice, the government of Canada clearly doesn't have a clue what to do

Canada clearly doesn't have a clue what to do

clearly the issue is that they do have an idea, and they’re not going to let politics dictate the outcome.

As a Canadian, I'm waiting for someone to take a shot at Meng Wanzhhou when she's out for one of her strolls or sitting in a nice restaurant for dinner. NOT that I want to see it happen. But that sort of thing happens everywhere.

"trial of Canadian citizen behind closed doors"

Wow!

Then we have JT Legal "experts" lecturing us on the medieval and archaic Japanese injustice system.

I love this site.

Spavor and his lawyer appeared for the hearing

Did they have a choice?

The Canadian Government will fold when the announced sentence is life or an execution. Ms. Meng will be on an airplane hours later.

Grow up boys, and stop playing games with peoples lives.

politicans cannot control our justice system, which irritates China to no end. What happens on the courts is up to the courts and no on else.

China only knows political courts so the concept is completely unknowable to them

Cowardly acts by a lawless tyrant government.

Western governments have been warning its citizens against travelling to China, as if I needed any warning.
