China sentences another Canadian to death

A Chinese court sentenced a second Canadian man to death for drug trafficking on Tuesday, provoking a strong rebuke from Ottawa, which already has a strained relationship with Beijing. The court in southern Guangdong province said the Canadian, Fan Wei, and 10 others – including an American and four Mexicans – were part of an international drug syndicate working out of Taishan city between July and November 2012.

The group produced and sold 63.38 kilograms of methamphetamine and 366 grams of dimethylamylamine, a drug used for attention deficit-hyperactive disorder, weight loss and improving athletic performance, according to the Jiangmen Intermediate People’s Court.
