Two Canadians jailed in China
MONTREAL — Radio-Canada is reporting that two employees of the equestrian touring show Cavalia have been arrested in China for alleged marijuana use. The network says two Quebecers were arrested at their Beijing hotel on July 14. Global Affairs Canada confirmed it is providing consular assistance to two Canadians who have been detained in China. A spokesman for Cavalia says Chinese officials have contacted the company to ask them to purchase plane tickets so some individuals could be repatriated.
Eric Paquette says the company is not confirming any of the details of the report for privacy reasons.
The Montreal-based company has been running its horsethemed shows in China since 2015.
