What Canada export to China In a nutshell, commodities and natural resources.
"Mineral products" made up $4 billion — or 25 percent — of Canadian exports to China in 2011.
The major items include nickel, copper and in recent years potash, which is used in the manufacture of fertilizer.
China is also a major buyer of our wood and paper products, which accounted for $1.4 billion in 2011, as well as fish products and oilseeds like canola.
The Huawei executive’s arrest at Vancouver International Airport on Dec. 1 was their first glimpse of the woman now at the center of a bitter diplomatic dispute between Canada and China.

The low in China for drugs trafficking is the death penalty.
His criminal record dates back to February 2003, when he received a six-month sentence for possession for the purpose of trafficking.
The ruling came after a sudden retrial of a 15-year sentence for allegedly conspiring with others to smuggle 222 kilograms of methamphetamine from China to Australia in 2014.

Chinese Ambassador to Canada Lu Shaye:
“For clear reasons, the current China-Canada relations are facing serious difficulties.”
In the prepared text for a speech Thursday, Lu Shaye said he’s saddened Canada-China relations are at what he called a “freezing point.”
Lu’s remarks come at a time of heightened tensions following the December arrest of Chinese telecom executive Meng Wanzhou in Vancouver on an extradition request by the United States.
The Huawei executive’s arrest has enraged China, which has since detained two Canadians on allegations of endangering Chinese national security, sentenced two Canadians to death for drug-related convictions and blocked key agricultural shipments.
Lu did not mention Meng’s arrest — but he said the China-Canada relationship is now facing serious difficulties.

CHINA-CANADA TENSIONS ARE NO PASSING STORM: By Charles Burton, May 1, 2019
So the federal government politely urging Beijing to grant visas to our agricultural specialists to show the Chinese that our canola seeds are not contaminated as they falsely claim, or seeking mildly supportive press releases from Australia, the Netherlands, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Spain, Denmark — and even from more significant actors such as the European Union, NATO, the United Kingdom, France, Germany and, oh yes, the United States — is evidently not going to get us anywhere.
Please remove the word falsely from your article, you are not a food expert.
Please post the communications letter of the federal government to qualified the word ( politely )

The federal government unwittingly allowed the sale of genetically modified canola seeds in 1997 that were "seriously contaminated," according to government documents that have only now come to light.
SEEDS OF CONTENTION

April 14, 1997 - Monsanto Canada tells the federal government that it has detected something wrong in canola seed LG3315, a seed genetically modified to be resistant to Monsanto's herbicide, Roundup.
April 16 - The Canadian Food Inspection Agency suspends the registration of LG3315. Monsanto and seed company Limagrain being the recall of 20,000 bags of seed.
April 25 - Registration is suspended for a second genetically modified canola seed, LG3295. Companies begin recalling 40,000 more bags of seed.
Deadline for withdrawal is set for May 15. End of May - Seed withdrawal ends after companies plow under a farmer's field and collect 60,000 bags of seed.
July - Companies ask to revise the disposal plan to allow more time.
July 23 - Documents show companies were unable to persuade one farmer to allow his contaminated crop to be plowed under.
August - Canadian Food Inspection Agency allows companies more time for and approves revised disposal plan.
September - Government, and companies argue about how best to dispose of seed.
Government prevails. October, November - Seed is buried in secret landfill sites in Western Canada. Nov. 7 - Limagrain says it has cleaned up its LG3295 seed and asks for registration to be reinstated. Jan. 14, 1998 - Government reinstates the registration of LG3295, saying it is now safe.
May 1999 - Companies request de-registration of LG3295 because they have created new seeds with better yield.
