Should Canada free Meng Wanzhou in exchange for the two Michaels?

Poll: hostage diplomacy

A new study reveals that majority of Canadians support Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's stance on refusing to swap Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou for two detained Canadians in China.

Trudeau has dismissed a letter signed last week by 19 prominent Canadians including various former Liberal politicians calling for the federal government to intervene and end legal proceedings against Wanzhou in order to free Canadians Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig, who have been held in China for more than a year.
