Canadian ambassador to China fired after comments on Huawei case

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has made an unprecedented move that he had fired ambassador to China on Saturday. The move comes after the ambassador to China John McCallum made a remark on Huawei case. 

John McCallum said on January 24 that Huawei’s Meng Wanzhou who is detained in Canada now could make a strong argument against being sent to the United States.

Opposition politic party in Canada has accused McCallum’s comment is unacceptable political interference. 

Canadian PM Trudeau’s top political rival which is Canada’s Conservative leader Andrew Scheer said Trudeau should have immediately fired John McCallum but Trudeau rejected that call at first.   However, on Friday McCallum said if America drops its extradition request would be  “great for Canada”.
