Canada's decision to make nice with the U.S. by arresting Huawei's top financial executive -- knowing full well that China would be enraged over the arrest -- has serious political overtones.
While the Trudeau government has long boasted of employing a gendered lens to enact its policies, that analysis has certainly not applied to extradition.
A celebration of the release and return home of Canadian professor Hassan Diab after three years of imprisonment in France, and a condemnation of Canada's role in his mistreatment.
Two years ago, Dr. Hassan Diab was extradited to France and immediately imprisoned on spurious and very rocky charges. With Trudeau considering an extradition treaty with China, should we be worried?
This week, a French judge ordered the release of Hassan Diab from jail while an investigation into his case continues. Canada should follow suit and give Diab due process.
The essential story is simple. Diab was born in Lebanon and holds Lebanese and Canadian citizenship. At the moment, he remains behind bars in France with little evidence of his guilt.
Under Canada's woefully unfair Extradition Act, the U.S. is seeking a Canadian mother for an alleged violation of a highly problematic custody order, which threatens to pull her family apart.
The long-running extradition saga of Dr. Hassan Diab -- sought by French authorities for a 1980 crime he did not commit -- took a dramatic turn when the Supreme Court refused to hear his final appeal.
Hassan Diab continues to remain hopeful that the Canadian legal system will prevail and he will not be extradited to France for questioning about his alleged role in a 1980 Paris bombing.
