Kovrig, Spavor return home to Canada after China release

The two Canadians who were imprisoned by Beijing for nearly three years have returned home, local media has reported, where Prime Minister Justin Trudeau received them.

Footage from TV channel CTV showed Trudeau welcoming businessman Michael Spavor and former diplomat Michael Kovrig when they arrived in the western Canadian city of Calgary on Saturday.

The Prime Minister’s Office did not offer an immediate comment.

“Welcome home, Michaels,” Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) wrote on Twitter.

“CSIS joins all Canadians in welcoming you back to Canada.”
