It has been exactly two years since Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou arrived at Vancouver's airport for a flight layover and instead was taken to a police station in handcuffs.

Meng was arrested at the behest of US law enforcement, who have charged her with fraud based on allegations that both she and Huawei deny.

She remains in Vancouver where hearings are ongoing in her extradition case.

The arrest soured Canada's relationship with China and has been linked to the ongoing detention of Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor, two Canadians in China.
