    What can the average Canadian do to support and advocate for the release of these two Canadians?

  4. Feel for them. Shame that our Prime Minister is spineless.

    The old criminal dictatorship hostage show trial at just the right moment. Dictatorships are dumb as a stump one trick ponies. The country is a sad joke. Get rid of your foolish king that tried to hide a pandemic and join the grown ups in the modern world under liberal democracy and the rule of law.

    Release Meng, we can then get Michaels back. USA did this and they aren’t helping.

      Canada is a country of laws and we are abiding by a treaty. Bowing to the actions of a criminal dictatorship is like negotiating with terrorists.

      @Colin Thisaname, they’ve had her for almost 2 1/2 years. Either extradite her or trade her off. Such incompetence in this gov’t.

      ​@CaSPeR GHoST Administering the law takes as long as it takes and longer when her lawyers are fighting for her to remain in Canada. I’d imagine if she asked to be dropped over the border tomorrow it might speed things up.

  12. Lol, it’s been how long that they’ve been in jail? Thus far trudeau has done f all, hasn’t even picked up the phone. Relentless diplomacy is not something we can expect from this government. Even a one-off diplomacy won’t happen.
