and special and covered were detained just weeks after months arrest ottawa has accused paging of hostage diplomacy. canadian prime minister just intruder issued a statement saying the ruling was unjust, and lacked transparency. representatives from 25 countries, including the u. s. u. k and japan appeared at the canadian embassy in beijing in supporters. babble. the chinese court sent michael to 11 years in prison and ordered his people cation. but it's unclear when that would happen. canadian officials say it's more likely after the jail tend to search, but some say it could be an option used as a bargaining chip with canada. it all hangs on what happens to miss mung and tube or perhaps later if she is extradited in washington. the verdict follows the upholding of the death sentence of another canadian robot schellenberg. on tuesday, he was jailed in china and 2014 for drug smuggling. it's unclear when the court
6:41 pm
will give its decision on michael coverage. michael staffel has 10 days to appeal his sentence, but in the country when 99 percent of criminal cases are felt guilty, the chances of overturning the ruling are unlikely. katrina you out a 0 begging. very pleased to welcome stephanie calvin to the new zone, an associate professor of international affairs that carlton university with us from also well and thank you for your time and your patience as well. while we got to you, i know there's a big picture here, but i want to ask you about michael. spell the 1st of all, 11 years in prison, closed doors, court room in china. completely expected, isn't it? i mean, do you expect that he will actually then serve out those full 11 years so yeah, i mean, this must be devastating to the family, but this burden came as no surprise as the segments that introduced this discussion . that the conviction rate in china is 99 percent. we do hope that there is
6:42 pm
going to be some kind of potential for some kind of agreement. so i think that would probably be the easiest way for the to my goals as well as the other detained canadians to be released. some kind of agreement where ms. long, who is being held in or in extradition. hearing right now in vancouver, would it plead guilty perhaps to a lesser offense, pay a fine, and then be returned to china if us drop extradition request. and then hopefully they're after that basically the to michael's and other canadians would be released as well. i think that's the main hope right now, but, you know, as you know, relations between the advisor and ministration and the chinese government continue to be very frosty. it's not clear how realistic or how soon that might be. just been reading some notes here where you've described this as a diplomatic dance in a way because there is, as we said, so much more than just this one case going on. what do you mean by the, the dance here? so you know, as again, it was stated in that segment earlier,
6:43 pm
the chinese see this as a political prosecution. they definitely see canada as acting at the lap dog support the united states in its efforts to kind of undermine while way globally. so, you know, because they see it politically, there shouldn't be surprised. they're trying to spend a political signal. and every time we see developments in the mon case in vancouver, we often see some kind of reciprocal exchange in the chinese legal system. so for example, this week we saw some final arguments being presented by the monks defense. and we should not be there for the price that we saw development happen in the case of the to michael's over one of the my goals as well as mr. schellenberg. it is, it's a dance of diplomatic signal, right? but there's a threat, isn't there as well? because china has no qualms, no issues with taking strong action. and even if it does take strong action and is condemned by the international community, not much really comes with that very often does it?
6:44 pm
yes, and this has come with some frustration here in canada. there's a number of political leaders that have been calling for stronger actions including potentially boycotting the winter 2022 olympic games. and of course the olympic games are very big in canada would be a very significant step. but, you know, we're a middle power g foreign policy is essentially if you hit us, we will hit you back twice as hard. this is something that other middle powers, like a strictly i have experienced a in terms of their trade. and so we have to be very careful and unfortunately, i think we are going to have to let this legal slash political process work out. even as you know, there's a lot of hope in canada that some kind of trilateral solution between canada, the united states, and try to may produce some progress. stephanie calvin, with her expert opinion from also today. thank you. we really appreciate it. thank you. a british national has been arrested in germany after being accused of spying for russia. he said to have sent documents obtained from the british embassy,
