MLI Senior Fellow Charles Burton joined CTV News to discuss Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor reaching 1,000 days of arbitrary detention as hostages of Chinese authorities.

"The Canadian government, while claiming this is their number one foreign policy priority, really appears to be putting the priority on maintaining Canada's trade and investment relations," says Burton. "We're really not doing enough to get these men out of the prison hell that they've been sustaining for such a long time."
