A former Canadian diplomat named Michael Kovrig who is now working for the international Crisis Group in China has been arrested and detained by Chinese authorities. The reasons for the arrest are unclear at this time. Is this a tit-for-tat reprisal by China for the arrest of Ms. Meng Wanzhou, a CFO for Huawei industries or is it an isolated incident? Input and opinions please.

Definitely tit-for-tat, just decided to make up charges to trey and get back at us. Like I said in another thread, it is ironic a country with kangaroo courts, death squads, and concentration camps is complaining about Canada following proper legal procedures.

Wonder when the Drama Llama will wake up and realize that China is a threat. And he wants to discuss a free trade deal with them.
