Noting that his daughter has been detained in her luxury Vancouver mansion for a year now, Huawei founder and chief executive Ken Zhengfei says he hopes the “hardship and suffering” Meng Wanzhou is going through proves to be “good for her growth.”

“Under the grand backdrop of the Sino-U.S. trade war, she is like a small ant caught between the collision of two giant powers,” he told CNN in an interview marking the anniversary of her detention.

Meng’s suffering consists of periodic trips to court in a variety of colourful fashions, where her team of lawyers argue against extradition to the U.S. on charges of bank fraud related to alleged sanctions-busting dealings with Iran. Lately they have sought to oppose allowing the eventual proceedings to be broadcast by CBC , arguing it could catch the attention of Donald Trump and result in a “threatening and intimidating” intervention.

“If (Meng’s) extradition hearing is broadcast, this will only increase the public scrutiny she faces and the attention her matter receives from officials in the United States,” her legal eagles maintained.

China , whose relations with Canada have deteriorated badly over the affair, denounced the decision and repeated previous demands for Meng’s release. “I suspect the Trudeau government is desperately hoping that the Americans reach a deal with the Chinese ,” he said by phone.

Canada 's diplomatic rift with China looks set to deepen following the dismissal of the country's top diplomat in Beijing. Amid the back and forth over Meng and Huawei , two high-profile Canadians remain in Chinese custody after being detained in the wake of the Huawei extradition hearings.

In China, of course, the idea that members of the public might be allowed to know what’s going on in the courts is alien to everything the communist system represents. Mere citizens have the right to be told what the government wants them to be told, and that’s that. Beijing, for instance, insists there is absolutely no truth to the multitude of reports of Muslims in Xinjiang province — perhaps hundreds of thousands of them — being forced into re-education camps , locked behind barbed wire watched over by guard towers.

While newly-leaked documents show the camps are high-security prisons — with instructions to prevent escapes at all costs, focus on “discipline and punishment of behavioural violations,” “promote repentance and confession” and press inmates to “truly transform,” Chinese citizens are kept firmly in the dark, told no more about their rulers’ actions than they are about the months’-long outbreak of resistance to communist influence in Hong Kong.

While her lawyers struggle to protect Meng from the cameras, two Canadians jailed in retaliation — Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig — enjoy none of the privileges Canadian law allows her. They’re held without access to lawyers or family, and without formal charges. Canada’s new ambassador, Dominic Barton, was able to meet them as they too approach the anniversary of their captivity, and while a communist spokesman made clear they’ll be held hostage as long as Beijing feels the need.

The notion that keeping Meng’s proceedings off the tube might ensure they escape Trump’s notice may strike some as beyond silly: even if his State Department neglects to mention it, the president is a known TV enthusiast, and there’s a good chance his pals at Fox News will cover the event. It is reasonable, however, to anticipate the hearings could be treated to one of his patented Twitter outbursts. The president wasn’t too busy to live-tweet attacks on witnesses appearing before House impeachment proceedings, so there’s no reason to assume he’ll remain wholly indifferent to a case with implications for more than one ongoing U.S. tiff with China. At a gathering in Halifax, White House national security advisor Robert O’Brien minced no words about Washington’s strong-arm techniques, warning Ottawa to keep Huawei out of Canada’s coming 5G network if it hopes to maintain access to intelligence-gathering from the U.S. and other allies.

Huawei plans to shift research center to Canada from U.S.: Globe and Mail

  Huawei plans to shift research center to Canada from U.S.: Globe and Mail Huawei plans to shift research center to Canada from U.S.: Globe and MailRen's remarks came as Reuters reported on Friday that the United States is weighing expanding its power to stop more foreign shipments of products with U.S. technology to Huawei. The U.S. Commerce Department in May placed Huawei on a trade blacklist, citing national security concerns.

China accused Washington of damaging global trade with sanctions that threaten to cripple tech giant Huawei and said Tuesday it will protect Chinese companies but gave no indication of possible retaliation.

Several vigils were held in Hong Kong to mark 31 years since the massacre in Tiananmen square.

“When they get Huawei into Canada or other Western countries, they’re going to know every health record, every banking record, every social media post; they’re going to know everything about every single Canadian,” O’Brien said.

There is no reason to suspect the U.S. of needless paranoia about Huawei and its activities. Yet another recent report — this one from the Australian Strategic Policy Institute — found that Huawei works directly with Beijing’s re-education operations in Xinjiang, helping build a sophisticated digital surveillance system for constant monitoring of inmates.

Co-author Vicky Xiuzhong Xu charged that, courtesy of Huawei, “everyone in Xinjiang — from telecommunications companies to social media companies to tech companies that make cameras — form this ecosystem that enables and allows this mass detention, these gross human rights abuses to happen on a large scale.” For her troubles, Xu has been targeted by attacks on Chinese social media sites for daring to report negatively about her home country.

The Trudeau government has been careful to delay a decision on Huawei and 5G until safely through the recent election, worried about giving Beijing yet another excuse to display its brutality. But official dawdling has done nothing to alter the stark evidence that Huawei should be kept as far as possible from anything to do with Canadian networks. When the time comes, when Kovrig and Spavor are safe, only one decision is possible. Commercial agreements with thugs and extortionists is not in the national interest, at any price.

Kelly McParland: Tory finally admits Toronto has to take care of itself In the Toronto mayor’s case, he was unquestionably reversing course on one of his most oft-repeated pledges, but for pragmatic and defensible reasons. Making the pledge in the first place was the flimflam: a bad promise made for base political gain by a man who is too intelligent not to have appreciated its flaws. Backtracking on it is nothing to applaud from the integrity point of view, but the end result is in the best interests of his city.
