Update: I guess Trump is useful for something. Outcome from his dinner with President Xi Jinping this evening:

Quote:
Xi also agreed to designate the drug fentanyl as a controlled substance, the White House said. For more than a year, Trump has raised concerns about the synthetic opioid being sent from China to the United States, which is facing an epidemic of opioid-related deaths.

When did Canada become so fawning and obedient to China?

Nothing will happen because we have to satisfy what they (the Chinese government) want.

John McCallum fired as Ambassador to China: https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/mcc...ador-1.4994492

Quote:
On Tuesday McCallum was quoted telling a gathering of Chinese-language journalists in Toronto that he thought she had a strong case to fight extradition to the U.S. and listed several arguments he thought could help her with her case.
Quote:
Then, just the next day, he reportedly told StarMetro Vancouver it would be "great for Canada" if the United States dropped their extradition request against the Huawei executive.
I’m not surprised. The remarks were highly inappropriate for someone in his position. They did not represent Canada’s position.

Here's and update about the Huawei exec:

https://www.msn.com/en-ca/money/tops...7u0?li=AAggNb9

What I don't understand is; if they're only charging her now, what reason did Canada have to detain her two months ago? Did Canada simply arrest her on the basis of the U.S. asking us to? If indeed that's all that was required to get us into this pickle with China, perhaps we should have told the U.S. to go pound sand until they stopped enacting those tariffs on the spurious and laughable basis of Canada being a "security threat".

Trudeau should have told Trump to kizz our azzes without any warrant actually issued and as long as we weren't being treated fairly and being lied about by his royal orangeness.

I read that after the woman was arrested, the U.S. had 30(?) days to formally request extradition. I assume that length of time was set out in the treaty. I also assume the request could be denied under certain circumstances and the U.S. had to ensure to provide certain paperwork to back up their claim that their extradition request was “legitimate” under treaty rules.

My confusion stems from Canada "arresting" her two months ago when the news today says she's just now being charged with a crime.

Are we now arresting people without them being charged with anything? Are we doing so at the mere behest of a foreign nation stating charges will be forthcoming sometime in the future?

I understand the extradition part and the time line within the treaty , but I had assumed an arrest would only take place if a warrant was already sent by the U.S. and that could only have been acted upon had she been charged already with some extraditable crime.

As I say; I'm confused as it looks like Canada has indeed done what China has accused us of doing......playing "toady" to the U.S. without her having been charged with anything when we detained her.

This is especially galling when one considers we're still under tariffs imposed by that stupid Trump using an inappropriate "security risk" article. Tariffs he indicated would be gone once a new NAFTA was agreed to. Another lie by Trump.

Lying is the new normal for the U.S. in it's characterization of Canada about treating them unfairly in trade to being a security risk.

I’m not even sure if the new NAFTA will get ratified by Congress. It was supposed to happen by the spring. Trump has too many other distractions right now to pursue it and even if he did, the Democrat-led House might want to continue to flex its muscles.

The EU doesn’t seem to be getting anywhere on the U.S. eliminating steel tariffs either. They had agreed to consider lowering industrial tariffs in exchange but now the U.S. is demanding the EU lower agricultural tariffs as well.
