On this special bonus episode of China Rising, we’ll investigate how the biggest story in Canada-China relations finally came to a head. On Sept. 24th, a nearly three-year geopolitical stand-off over the arrest of Meng Wanzhou in Vancouver ended after the Huawei executive struck a deal with U.S. authorities. Just hours after she was released, the Canadian Prime Minister announced the ‘Two Michaels’ – Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor – were also freed and on their way home to Canada. That frantic climax sent shockwaves around the world. We’ll explore what it means for the future of Canada-China relations and witness the emotional homecoming for the ‘Two Michaels’ and their families.
