Funny we haven't chatted about this.

Is Justin going to stand up and do something? The person China is trying to retrieve is living in her mansion like a rockstar.  Meanwhile these Canadians they have arrested are no where to be seen, probably off in some shit hole.  Love the way we do biz with a country who has built their empire on slave labour and has numerous  human rights infractions.

Stop buying made in China crap. I try the best I can, have for years. Not everything but most.

This guy spent 2 years there in jail on trump-ed up charges. In retaliation for another arrest here.

Yet we still trade with these a**holes.

A much better idea than waiting for Justin.

He should trade Meng to Trump for lifting tariffs.

What exactly is he supposed to do? What exactly could any Canadian leader do? Threaten China with war? Cut off shipments of maple syrup?

What do you think, with the Chinese roll In seal team six style Bust here out and take her home?

Not terribly difficult considering where she is being held.  Her and her family would certainly have the resources .

Can't be done.  To escape they'd have to drive through Richmond.
