You really think there's nothing shady about one of the only westerners to have a personal relationship with Kim Jong Un? 

Or a guy who works for the ICG? An heavily funded western think tank organization famous for championing NATO wars and awarding the president of myanmar the pursuit of peace award at the same time he was cleansing his country of rohynga muslims? 

I'm willing to believe it was retaliation detaining them but there was definitely something that set those two apart from the other 300 thousand Canadians they could have chosen.

Sources for your info?

During the early years of the Cold War, Washington funded the reconstruction of a ravaged Europe and the development of 100 new nations emerging from colonial rule. But as the Cold War ended in 1991, more than a third of humanity was still living in extreme poverty, abandoned by Washington's then-reigning neo-liberal ideology that consigned social change to the whims of the free market. By 2018, nearly half the world's population, or about 3.4 billion people, were simply struggling to survive on the equivalent of five dollars a day, creating a vast global constituency for Beijing's economic leadership.

The banking scandal is real though. People are protesting in front of the banks in both Anhui and Henan (note the tanks were photographed in a completely different province). Unlike in the west the bankers are likely going to face severe punishments for this.
