Canada, China, and Robert Schellenberg

The news that Robert Schellenberg was sentenced to death for drug smuggling in a public trial is so unusual as to cause concern, not least given the already bad relationship between Canada and China. Canada will need to tread cautiously and respectfully and not put China in a publicly awkward situation. China will needed look at ways of reassuring the West and helping find a way for Schellenberg to have his sentence commuted and making sure that Canada is not put in an awkward position. Difficult, but I suspect it is doable
