    I doubt it, I've got a nasty suspicion that China won't release either of the Michaels after this ends. They seem to delight in bullying smaller nations and will keep the screws on us for ever daring to stand up to them.

    The only part of O'Toole's platform I agreed with was their China policy - we should threaten to boycott the Winter Olympics next year if they aren't released immediately after Wangzhou is.

    It's time for the gloves to come off IMHO.

    Try to find something else to boycott, the only people you'll piss off is the Canadian athletes.

    I doubt they would be pissed off. Disappointed, yes. But they get it. It's not just about the Michaels, but Tiawan, Tibet, Uighurs . . .
  • Sunnyways: So the US didnít want Meng on its soil: sensible enough given what happened as a result of the extradition request - two innocent Canadians held hostage for years under horrible conditions and another retried and placed on death row, not to mention trade reprisals etc. Meanwhile the heiress who started this kerfuffle wonít do one day of time. TrumpĎs careless observation turned out to be true - this was all about horse-trading between superpowers - but itís been a rather sickening learning experience for us up north. Next time a similarly dubious ask for a Chinese oligarchís relative comes in weíll have to consider it more carefully. Weíre going to suffer enough pain in our own fights with China and donít need to add to that list.

    Regarding counter-measures, Iíd leave the Olympics alone. Sports boycotts should not happen in peacetime. Letís get the Michaels home first and then have a deep think about the PRC.
