    The much-anticipated trial of Michael Kovrig in Beijing has ended with no verdict. Chinese officials say that will come at a later date. It’s the same outcome we saw with Michael Spavor last week. Both Canadians have been detained in China for more than two years on spying charges. Canadian diplomats were denied entry to both trials despite calls for more transparency and as Abigail Bimman reports, the federal government says it is deeply troubled by the situation.

    NASA’s Perseverance Rover is preparing to show off more of its moves on Mars. Within the belly of the craft is the Ingenuity helicopter, which NASA considers a high risk, high reward technology. It’ll be the first man-made device to fly on another planet during its maiden flight next month. Mike Drolet speaks with the Canadian engineer turned rocket star playing a crucial role in the mission.
