Chances of Kovrig and Spavor getting out of China is ‘very slim’: Fmr. Canadian diplomat

BNN June 19 2020: Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor have been formally indicted on spying charges by Chinese authorities. The move comes a year and a half after they were detained in what’s perceived to be retaliation for the December 2018 arrest of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou in Vancouver at the behest of U.S. authorities. Colin Robertson, former Canadian diplomat and current VP and fellow at the Canadian Global Affairs Institute joins BNN Bloomberg to weigh in. He says that Canada needs to take more punitive measures against China.
