Garneau unsure when Michael Kovrig verdict will come as China sentences 2 Canadians


The federal government is not sure when Michael Kovrig — one of the two Michaels detained in China — will learn his fate, Foreign Affairs Minister Marc Garneau said Wednesday. Garneau made the comments to reporters during a news conference after China’s courts earlier this week sentenced two other Canadians, Michael Spavor and Robert Schellenberg. “We don’t know when the verdict will be rendered regarding Michael Kovrig. We are waiting to see,” he said in French. “We know that his trial was supposed to happen shortly after Michael Spavor, but it’s the Chinese authorities that will decide when.”
