China kidnapped two Canadians — Justin Trudeau still gave them $41 million in foreign aid

Chinese authorities arrested Kovrig and Spavor in Beijing in March 2019. Many observers view their arrest, allegedly for spying, as retaliation for Chinese citizen Meng Wanzhou’s arrest by Canadian police in Vancouver in December 2018. Meng is the Chief Financial Officer of China’s state-owned telecom giant Huawei. She was detained by Canadian authorities at the request of U.S. government officials and has been under house arrest since then while her extradition case plays out in Canadian courts.

Canadian foreign aid to China totaled $41 million in 2019, according to newly-released data from the Department of Foreign Affairs. China has a $13 trillion economy and $10 billion space program: “A deepened and broadened relationship with China is a priority.”
