Justin Trudeau Fires Canada's Ambassador To China
According to Reuters, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has fired John McCallum, his ambassador to China.
McCallum was let go over remarks he made regarding Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou's extradition.
The firing is due to McCallum reportedly telling Chinese-language journalists in Toronto that he thought she had a strong case to fight extradition to the U.S. and wanted to help her with her case.
McCallum went on to say he misspoke, but Trudeau still asked for his resignation.
The Prime Minister adds he has no plans at this time to fill the position.
