Canada, China ink $2.2 billion in China deals: Prime Minister

China's Premier Li Keqiang (R) talks to Canada's Prime Minister Stephen Harper during a signing ceremony on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit in Beijing, November 8, 2014Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said he had signed deals with China worth $2.2 billion on Saturday, in a trip overshadowed by Beijing’s detention of two Canadians accused of espionage. Agreements announced on the sidelines of a meeting between Harper and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang in Beijing include a commitment by the state-run China Express Corporation to buy Bombardier aircraft, and at least two fruit export deals. Relations between the two countries became tenser over the summer after Ottawa accused Beijing of cyber-hacking, and police detained a Canadian couple living close to China’s border, with state-media branding them as spies. Asked about the detention of Kevin Garratt and Julia Dawn Garratt, who provided assistance to Christians in China and have been held since early August, Li said that, “individual cases…should be handled in accordance with the law,” without offering details.
