    Svend Robinson Attempting a Comeback

    the big question is how was he serving his community during that period after the conviction. Nothing is mentioned in the article except working overseas. I lived in his riding back in the day and saw him speak at SFU a few times. Thought his thoughts were just platitudes - seems like things haven't changed.

    BC Man Faces Death Penalty in China

    you are taking the time to post to say you don't care - hmm smell the irony. The comment on karma is hillbilly logic.

    the prosecutors filed the appeal not him. and this coincided with the issue in Van.

    So your rationale is that because he was convicted in Canada that means he committed the crime in China - gap in the logic there. At the trial in China he maintained innocence. He was retried in one day and then given the death sentence. You talk of law and the argument is not about drugs but whether in fact Chinese legal system is a kangaroo court.

    For your first point it doesn't work like that. Law enforcement agencies are obligated to make an arrest when the first opportunity arises. They would be negligent in their work to do otherwise. Your view on drugs and punishments are irrelevant to the issue. I am sure you feel that every individual is entitled to a fair trial and should have rights to protect themselves from gov't abuse? The reporting coming out of China suggest that the person in question was part of a kangaroo court and it was done to send Canada a message In England in the 1800's people were given the death penalty for petty things like stealing bread and so forth and kids were included. The records show that length of these trials lasted no more than 15 minutes. China's legal system isn't much different. Would you feel comfortable living in a society where if you annoy the gov't they can basically do with you what they like?

    well which part do you think is correct? the word study can also simply mean 'look' or 'read' and in written text it is often used this way. for you to assume it is condescending shows thin skin. If i had chosen look would that have made you feel better?

    no it is not redundant if I am referring to multiple problems with your comment. You can have an argument that is partially incorrect or completely incorrect. I am not sure why you would make such a strong assertion about there being a choice without first doing a little fact checking.

    don't confuse nuance for vagueness.

    i am a professor at a uni - i tell people to study all the time. your first response of 'of course . . .' was completely incorrect.

    study The arrest of Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou may inflame diplomatic and trade tensions with China, but Canada's extradition treaty with the United States left it with no choice but to detain her, says a legal expert. "If the application from the requesting state is in order, then Canada is legally obliged to arrest her," said Rob Currie, a Dalhousie law professor who focuses extensively on extradition law."Most extraditions are not terribly contentious. It so happens that this one is and has massive international political dimensions to it." CBC

    they had no choice - has nothing to do with taking a stand.

    Of course u don't have any evidence that he did actually do it. And you wrongly assume that the Chinese legal system is fair and impartial.

    He was sentenced to 15 years first and then a second trial was hastily scheduled that 'coincidentally' came about after the arrest in Vancouver and that second trial lasted one day.
