Meng's legal team argued that her arrest and detention were unlawful and that there is no basis for her extradition to the US, CBC said on Wednesday.
Lawyer Scott Fenton claimed that comments made by US President Donald Trump also suggested that the case against his client is politically motivated, hence defence would seek a stay in proceeding, the report said.
Huawei has insisted Meng has done nothing illegal.
The Chinese company has been accused by the United States, as well as a number of other countries, of stealing commercial information. Washington also said it suspected Huawei of working for the government of China, the US adversary and the country which is engaged in a major trade spat with Washington. Huawei has dismissed claims about its cooperation with the Chinese authorities and pleaded not guilty to trade secret theft charges.
