      @jjj liao you expect anyone to believe that the chinese figured out wireless technology on their own? Were there even rotary phones in china, or did china miss that part of history? The chinese government are known thieves and they don’t even try to deny it anymore.

    • @Supreme Decision Lol you mean stealing 5G which Americans don’t even have?

  7. I highly doubt anything is going to happen to that lady. I bet this is another excuse for Justin Trudeau to bow down to CCP. Watch. 2 Canadian journalists are already in jail in China right now and have been since Meng was first apprehended. No reason for the journalists to be arrested but revenge for Meng being arrested.

  8. Crimes against humanity in Canada against its own seniors by ALL LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT

    To The Hague

      Why don’t you go and live in china. ..atleast we get to know about any criminality in our old age homes go see if you can find out what criminality is taking place in china right now…it is also not lawful the way two Canadians were taken with no rule of law…those two men are being tortured so think twice before you hand praise to an evil system in china.

    Nothing wrong, but is Canada getting any benefit from this case? No. Is Canada going get damage from this case? Yes. Which will all benefit USA. China will probably won’t buy anything from Canada in the short coming

      because they are a totalitarian regime with the blood of over 55 million of it’s citizens on its hands.
