Breaking and interesting, the crime being used to extradite and prosecute Meng by the US is not a crime in Canada. We don't enforce sanctions on foreigners working in a different country. That may mean you ain't getting her. Given a choice I'd rather send her to China than the US who has been very mean to us in the last couple of years.
As I understand most extradition treaties (and mind you, this hasn't been something I was made to study since my gov't theory class in high school), the offense in question generally has to be unlawful in both countries. If Canada doesn't enforce sanctions against people operating in their home country, then Tim's probably right that the US won't be getting Meng. THAT BEING SAID.... that will not go over well with our toupeed carrot, and I would not be the least bit surprised to see fire, brimstone, and the re-imposition of a de facto corporate death sentence applied to ZTE and potentially Huawei as a result (they may have enough alternate supply chains to avoid the grave, but I haven't seen any news reports exploring this avenue).

(To an optimist, the cup is half full, to the pessimist half empty, but to the engineer simply twice the size it has to be)
Actually, this engineer would prefer to know what the cup is holding, and therefore whether or not another should be ordered before the first is emptied.
