Kept in prison cells with lights never turned out, long interrogations, and almost no access to Canadian officials.
Unsurprisingly, the ruthless Chinese Communist State is abusively treating the Canadians that were kidnapped as bargaining chips following the detention of the Huawei CFO.
According to reporters Robert Fife & Sean Silcoff, Canada’s Ambassador to China John McCallum told a closed-door group of MPs that Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor are being ‘mistreated.’
The report says the Canadians are “being kept in prison cells where the lights are on 24 hours a day, said sources at the hearing who were not allowed to publicly discuss what the envoy said. Authorities are also subjecting them to lengthy interrogations.”
Additionally, the Canadians are only able to meet with Canadian officials once a month for just 30 minutes. Their conversations are also all monitored.
They have also been denied access to a lawyer.
Contrast this with how Meng Wanzhou – the Huawei CFO – was treated in Canada. After her arrest, she was granted the full protections of Canada’s legal system, including access to a lawyer. She was treated humanly and granted bail. Now, she is sitting at her Vancouver mansion.
Canadians are waking up to the fact that China is an opponent and ideological enemy of Canada, not a friend. China won’t hesitate to treat Canadians like disposable garbage, and we must be under no illusions about what the Communist State is really all about: Power and domination for the Communist Party at all costs.
The longer the Trudeau government goes without taking strong retaliatory steps against China – including banning Huawei – the more China will sense weakness from Canada, and the more Canadians will be put at risk.
