  • bootlegga: It's time for our government to fight back on this hostage diplomacy BS.
  • llama66: Don't worry. We'll write a letter... a strongly worded letter.
  • Zipperfish: Meng has spent three years in custody now, or pretty close and no end in sight. definitely against this kind of retaliation but Canada basically kidnapped one of their politburo at the behest of the US and put her in custody indefinitely. Like, fer fucks sake, you didn't expect retaliation from a powerful communist regime?

    We didn't kidnap anyone, we arrested someone because they had an arrest warrant from another country and landed in Canada. We would have done the same if it the citizenship was reversed.

    Her 'custody' such that it is, is living in her mansion in Vancouver and doing whatever she wants in the city. Meanwhile, Spavor and Kovig have spent two years in prison with obvious signs of mistreatment, so there is ZERO comparison between the two sides.

    Of course we should have expected retaliation, but I doubt anyone thought China would act as badly as it has.

    It's now time to ban Huawei and perhaps consider boycotting the 2022 Olympics on the grounds that no Canadian is safe in China. Sadly, regardless who is Prime Minister, I doubt either action will happen because no politician wants to say good bye to Chinese trade.

    It doesn't matter if you're living in a mansion if you're under arrest, fer fucks sake. Just extradite her or let her go. It's been three fucking years. Shit or get off the pot.

    It was a political attack--Trump even said so. yes, we were obligated to act under our extradition treaty with the US, but they should have just said "oops, sorry, didn't read your email in time", or failing that, put her on the first flight to Washington. There's zero excuse to hold someone for three years on a bunch of Trumped up charges.
