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.

"A judge in the US District Court for the Eastern District of New York issued a warrant for Meng's arrest on August 22, it was revealed at the hearing Friday. She was arrested on December 1."

I believe additional charges have since been laid.

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.
Well Canada got a thank you for it's part in the unfolding Hauwei debacle. If those charges are eventually proven, they're in a heap of hurt world wide. One outcome is likely to be China being seen for the great copier of other countrie's technology. Gonna get messy.

I agree with your analysis of Trump's distractions now keeping him ineffective and behind the curve. Pelosi seems more than capable of keeping him in that state as well.

Canada has recognized Guaido as the legitimate ruler of Venezuela.

Trudeau even called him a dictator.

Small correction, I meant to say that Trudeau called Maduro a dictator.

Good news if true:

Republicans and Democrats alike on Capitol Hill won’t back the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement until President Donald Trump ends America’s punitive restrictions on steel and aluminum imports from Canada and Mexico, says a key congressional player in the unfolding North American trade drama.
That includes removal of any quotas on those imports.

Issues of concern in the agreement:

Quote:
Democrats say it lacks effective enforcement tools for its labour and environmental provisions. Republicans, Brady said, are concerned about the erosion of investor-state safeguards and that the uncertainty posed by a clause that the deal be open to review every six years, a caveat Canada initially opposed.
Now that is interesting!

This is the saddest thing I have read in a long time. You escape war and bombings in Syria, come to Canada and all your Children die in such a tragedy. I can't even imagine what the family is going through.

Yes it's gut wrenching. People here were talking about how sad and horrible to have this happen after coming to Canada. It's almost a feeling of " we failed them ".

Can't imagine either.
