Ottawa is forcibly creating a favorable public opinion atmosphere toward extradition. Is that appropriate behavior for a country ruled by law: To set the tone for right and wrong before the court trial begins?
Meng's case has revealed the weakness of the rule of law in Canada. Many commentators consider that this case has stuck Ottawa in the middle of Washington and Beijing. The truth is that they knew the geopolitics in the case from the very beginning, but were afraid to point them out.
As a Chinese folk saying goes, "You cannot live the life of a whore and expect a monument to your chastity." Canada is a country worthy of respect, but some Canadians must be reminded that they are now refusing to face up to the moral predicament. They are against moral righteousness while deceiving themselves to believe that they can be honored as moral models.
Meng's case seems to be protracted. If Canada insists on wrong practice, it must pay for it.
