Green and NDP MPs to speak at 'Free Meng Wanzhou' event
New Democrat MP Niki Ashton and Green MP Paul Manly will be speaking at the "Zoom to free Meng Wanzhou" event on November 24
Brian Mulroney has called for Canada to reconsider its relationship with China and gave credit to Justin Trudeau for not releasing Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou in exchange for the two Canadians, Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig.
The Chinese embassy in Ottawa denied claims that Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig are being held pending the release of Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou.
Today, Trudeau doubled down on his previous comments, saying "it was obvious from the beginning that this was a political decision made by the Chinese government."
"We are of course, disappointed with the decision and the next step taken by the Chinese, in the case of the two Michaels, we offer all of our support and sympathies to the families," said Trudeau.
Two Canadians, Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor are marking their 500th day of being imprisoned in China. This in retaliation for Meng Wanzhou's arrest.
