The Diplomat reports: Canada’s diplomats teach China a lesson in due process

When Canada’s embassy in Beijing posted last month’s ruling from the Federal Court of Canada about the deportation of Chinese fugitive Lai Changxing, it acted in an appropriate fashion – one might even say with wonderful appropriateness.

Canada has taken a good deal of heat from China during the dozen years in which the deportation of Mr. Lai was before the courts. Fair enough – the length of deportation processes in Canada sometimes baffles Canadians, too. But it’s entirely just, then, for Canada to post, on a popular Chinese social-networking site, a judge’s ruling that explains how due process worked in this particular case.
