Yes, I heard him on CGTN and he has many good points!  So there is still hope she may not be extra ...

Canadian minister cannot get involved, period. Law is kept separate from the courts here, unlike in other countries. Even if it is found that she can be extradited, Meng has several avenues of appeal open to her, which could probably keep this case before the courts for years. By the time it's all over and done with, the United States could very well just give up on extradition ... especially if they are able to secure a trade deal with China.
Stupid people are like Glowsticks. You want to snap them in half and shake the crap out of them until they see the light.
I love sarcasm. It's like punching someone in the head ... only with words

No, not under pressure at all. Under our laws, he should not have said anything because the case is still before the courts. Doing so can cause irreparable damage to either side's case. This was nothing more than a classic case of a politician putting his mouth in motion before putting his brain in gear.

He retracted it because he was not legally allowed to say anything in the first place.

What's the difference between he saying it and we here saying it?  He was merely expressing an opinion, that should never be construed as interferring in the case at all!

He has  a point, "He cited political comments on the case by US President Donald Trump, the "extraterritorial aspect" of Meng's case, and the fact that Canada did not sign on to the Iran sanctions that Washington wants her extradited for."

"Perhaps you should be educating Chinese citizens about breaking the laws in other countries."

You must have missed my many comments and even threads on Chinese peoples' bad behavior overseas and in China!  But this is not the topic now; we are discussing a more serious matter of drug smuggling!

I totally agree.  He was just expressing his own opinion.
