For the week of Sept. 26, 2021:
The biggest world news story out of Vancouver since the 2010 Winter Olympics is over. Since December 2018, it was filled with geopolitical, national security, legal and tech intrigue.
Meng Wanzhou left Vancouver International Airport on a flight to Shenzhen Sept. 24. The B.C. Supreme Court ended extradition proceedings against the Huawei CFO because of a deferred prosecution agreement with the United States.
Meng admitted to a court in New York that she lied to HSBC about a Huawei subsidiary in Iran, but she did not plead guilty. Her fraud charges will disappear by December 2022 if she abides.
At the same time as Meng’s Air China departure, Canadian hostages Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor were on their way home from China.
It all came down the same week that voters kept Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party as Canada’s minority government.
Listen to highlights of the case that will be talked about for decades.
Plus Pacific Rim and Pacific Northwest headlines.
