In anticipation of the second anniversary of her arrest, we co-hosted an online panel discussion to Free Meng Wanzhou, unjustly incarcerated by the Trudeau government at the request of the Trump Administration. You’ll learn more from Canadian experts about her legal case, deteriorating relations with China, and the rise of Sinophobia in Canada – plus what you can do about it.
