Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China, Ltd. (COMAC, Chinese: 中国商用飞机有限责任公司) is a Chinese state-owned aerospace manufacturer... --> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comac
As you might already know, this was published on Fliegerfaust earlier; COMAC of China is coming to Canada for help in certifying their upcoming commercial aircraft, the C919. (China COMAC C919 Coming To Canada For Certification)
The Chinese C919 test aircraft and team is expected to arrive at the beginning of March, specifically, at London, Ontario airport, depending on covid19 travel restrictions.
China is currently engaged in a rancorous fight with Canucks since Canada has had to arrest Huawei chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou, the daughter of Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei. She is wanted in the U.S. where she is accused of fraud with a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison for allowing a subsidiary to do business in Iran, violating U.S. sanctions against the country and misleading American financial institutions in the process.
Canada and the U.S. have an extradition treaty, things that you can expect from two of the world friendlier country sharing the longest border on the planet. The arrest happened on December 1, 2018, while she had to transfer from a Cathay Pacific flight at Vancouver International Airport, a 12 hours layover in Canada.
Don't you worry, Meng Wanzhou is not exactly in jail as she is under house arrest in Vancouver. In fact, Huawei CFO lives in luxury and spends her days out shopping while spending lots of dollars fighting the Canadian laws, seeking for a total release not to be deported to the U.S. for trial. ("Meng's 'unusual' bail terms allow her the freedom to go shopping and to restaurants as long as she wears a GPS monitor and sticks to her 11 p.m. curfew" https://financialpost.com/technology/prisoner-in-vancouver-huawei-cfo-awaits-her-fate-in-splendor).
Instead of letting the Canadian and U.S justice system engage in due process, the Beijing government chose to arrest two Canadian citizens in China and accuse them of national security crimes providing no proof regarding their accusations. "Nine days after her Dec. 1 arrest during a stop over in Vancouver, China detained two Canadians on national security grounds. And this week, a China court imposed a death sentence, following a one-day trial, to a Canadian found guilty of drug smuggling" https://financialpost.com/technology/prisoner-in-vancouver-huawei-cfo-awaits-her-fate-in-splendor
For everyone, obviously, China comes to mind as a symbol when talking about democracy, civil and human rights… You get the picture!

The C919 aircraft made by COMAC benefitted from the consulting help of Bombardier Inc. of Montreal, Quebec, Canada during its design. Specifically, the Chinese acquired useful data on topics such as the new C919 composite wing. This specific technology was developed by Bombardier while creating the CSeries (now Airbus A220). I'm assuming that exporting that technology and knowledge to China was agreed with the Canadian government. I do not know what the benefit to Bombardier could have been into doing so, since the move most certainly did not help the sales of the CSeries into China, zero order!.

Now, could the Trudeau government in Canada be planning on impounding the COMAC C919 test airplane and have its crew arrested asking for those 2 Canadians to be released from jail in China? I doubt the jails in China are nicer than the ones in Canada or the Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou house arrest mansion in Canada.

That would certainly be a bold move from the government of Canada, considering the sheer magnitude of Chinese power. When one looks at how China has penetrated the upper management of the United Nations, up to the point of holding a seat on the UN Human Rights Council (I kid you not), it shows the level of absurdity and suspicion we can all be regarding as to who really control the United Nations organization but also on the power China already has on institutions very close to you.
"To the dismay of human rights activists, China was yesterday elected to the United Nations Human Rights Council. The Chinese mission to the UN quickly dashed off a triumphant tweet, hailing the "strong support" from member states and pledging to promote and protect human rights…" https://qz.com/1917295/china-elected-to-un-rights-council-but-with-lowest-support-ever/
Would Justin Trudeau have the guts? Can Canada choose to defend its citizens instead of protecting its economic interest and relations with China? In the instance, can Justin Trudeau translate his dramatic talk into action?
Has Canada changed to this point?
