I Think This Lets CANADA Off the Hook

Donald Trump’s use of the case against Meng Wanzhou as a bargaining chip (aka hostage-taking or blackmail) in trade negotiations with China is a clear indication that the extradition request was not made in good faith based on the belief that there was a clear obligatorily enforceable  legal case against Ms Meng. Thus Canada is under no moral obligation (and I would hope is under no legal obligation) to deliver her.  I deeply hope that a Canadian court reaches the same conclusion and orders her release on those grounds.
