Canada needs to keep its guard up amid Biden presidency and vaccine optimism: Former TD Ameritrade CEO
TORONTO - Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he's spoken with President-elect Joe Biden about China's imprisonment of two Canadians in retaliation for the arrest of a top Huawei executive and he expects Biden to be a good partner in convincing Beijing to release them.
Beijing arrested former diplomat Michael Kovrig and businessman Michael Spavor in December 2018 just days after Canada arrested Meng Wanzhou, a Chinese Huawei executive and the daughter of the company's founder.
The U.S. is seeking Meng's extradition on fraud charges and her extradition case is before the Canadian courts.
