Canada will 'shortly' see Michael Spavor, second detained Canadian in China: Trudeau

But 7,000 miles away, the relationship between China and North America would be tested, when Canadian police arrested a woman named Meng Wanzhou. And President Donald Trump complicated matters by saying he might intervene in the case if would help clinch a US trade agreement with China - much to the consternation of Canadian officials.
"The unlawful detention of two Canadian citizens is unacceptable".
He pointed to a recent meeting Canada hosted of about a dozen like-minded countries to reform the WTO - a meeting to which it did not invite the US or China - as a way to find solutions in "a thoughtful way and not an overly political or nationalistic" one. "We ask all nations of the world to treat other citizens properly".
The Canadians were Michael Spavor, a China-based consultant who arranges visits for foreigners including National Basketball Association star Dennis Rodman to North Korea, and Michael Kovrig, a Mandarin-speaking former Canadian diplomat who works for the International Crisis Group, a think tank that looks for peaceful solutions to global conflicts.
Meng made a brief appearance at the front door earlier when she said goodbye to three people who left in a auto with diplomatic licence plates. Freeland said Friday's discussions focused on upholding the rule of law, and ensuring Meng's right to due process is respected and that the ongoing legal process remains free of politics.
But sometimes, he said, the rules can be improved.
Freeland has said that Canada is working to ascertain the two citizens' whereabouts and is raising their cases with Chinese authorities. "Canada understands the rule of law and extradition issues ought not ever be politicized or used as tools to resolve other issues".
Massive Marriott data breach traced to Chinese hackers

In years past, the USA would have been counted on to defend Canada when it came under attack and other countries would know the US had Canada's back. In June, Trump publicly criticized Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as "very dishonest and weak" for his statements on tariffs as the Canadian leader hosted a Group of Seven summit in Quebec.
In August, Saudi Arabia expelled Canada's ambassador to the kingdom and withdrew its own ambassador after Canada's foreign ministry tweeted support for an arrested Saudi activist.
No country, including the USA, spoke out publicly in support of Canada, and the Trump administration has been steadfast in its support for Saudi Arabia.
Now the stakes are much higher.
But the only way for Canada to see its way through the turbulence is to adhere strictly to the rule of law, and the worldwide institutions that are under threat, Trudeau said.
Meng's arrest came on the very day that Trump was meeting with his Chinese President Xi Jinping on the sidelines of a summit in Buenos Aires to find a way out of months of trade tensions.
