Ai Weiwei helped design China’s striking “bird’s nest” stadium for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, and is known for his continued and stinging criticism of China’s record on human rights.  Ai was arrested and detained for 81 days last year and is accused of economic crimes. His supporters believe he has actually been targeted for his activism.

In his first major North American broadcast interview since his release (and one he gave at great personal risk as he is forbidden from speaking with foreign media), Ai speaks candidly and pointedly with Q host Jian Ghomeshi about corruption and abuse in China’s judicial system, its record on human rights — and he is highly critical of countries like Canada who continue to do business with China without holding the country to account in these areas.
