Well, I guess you are right on this one point, but I cant find out whether or not the charges were sealed or not. Why would Meng come to Canada if she knew she would face this mess?
But I am not altering my position. I still think the way out of this was to let her go on her own recognizance and if she chose to flee, we say Oopsy-Doopsy.
As I understand the way extradition works is that we extradite people only if what they have done is a crime in Canada. Further, ever since the Peace of Westphalia, it has been the case that states can only prosecute people for acts committed within their territory.
General recognition of the exclusive sovereignty of each party over its lands, people, and agents abroad, and responsibility for the warlike acts of any of its citizens or agents. Issuance of unrestricted letters of marque and reprisal to privateers was forbidden.
This treaty was agreed to in 1648. This is the basis of diplomacy in the whole world.
If Canada has no choice but to let Justin's gang off the hook, then we have no "sovereignty". We are, as the Chinese have said, a vassal state. Which do you like better?
