Summary

During her bail hearing in December, her lawyer, David Martin, said she was looking forward to spending some quality time with her family during her detention.She hadn’t “read a novel in years,” he told the court, adding that she was considering pursuing a doctorate in business administration at the University of British Columbia, where Huawei is financing millions of dollars of research and development, including into 5G wireless networks.Mr. Li, the university student who studies China’s political economy, said Ms. Meng’s case had divided students on campus, with some from mainland China tending to sympathize with her plight and others viewing her arrest as Canada merely trying to apply the rule of law.Wenran Jiang, a senior fellow at the Institute of Asian Research at the University of British Columbia, noted that for some Chinese immigrants in the city, Ms. Meng’s arrest had tapped into deep-seated historical memories of Canada’s discrimination against Chinese people.Between 1885 and 1923 the Canadian government imposed a “head tax” on Chinese immigrants intended to limit arrivals.
