Calls have doubled to Sunny Chan’s Cantonese dialect afternoon call-in radio show on AM1320 since the arrest of Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou.
Callers overwhelmingly support China’s calls for Meng to be released, they feel she has been poorly treated, and there is concern that Chinese-Canadian politicians can’t openly discuss the case without alienating members of the Chinese community, said Chan.
“The Chinese community is very concerned,” he said. Most callers believe the detention of Meng is unreasonable. “Most of the community stands on China’s side, not on Canada’s side.
“Callers believe she is being treated inhumanely … she was treated like a serious criminal when she is only a suspect, and she is a woman.”
Chan said, “Callers say Canada is being a fool in this case and should not be getting into the water with the United States and China.”
