Huawei's Security Risks Outweigh Its Investment In Canada

Huawei's Security Risks Outweigh Its Investment In Canada Huawei's Chief Executive Officer Liang Hua recently announced a plan to increase the company's investment in Canada. According to Liang, the Chinese telecom hegemon will expand its number of employees by 20 per cent and add another 200 jobs in research and development. In addition, Huawei will add another 15 per cent to its existing investments in Canada. The announcement came as tensions between the company and Canada reached an all-time high. The federal government has yet to make a decision on the company's participation in the Canadian 5G network, leaving Huawei's future in Canada unclear.

BEIJING - China's state news agency says two Canadians detained on suspicion of harming national security acted together to steal state secrets.

Xinhua News Agency on Monday cited unidentified Chinese authorities as saying former Canadian diplomat Michael Kovrig violated Chinese laws by acting as a spy and stealing Chinese state secrets and intelligence with the help of Canadian businessman Michael Spavor.

Both Kovrig and Spavor were arrested on Dec. 10 in what was widely seen as an attempt to pressure Canada to release Chinese executive Meng Wanzhou, who was arrested in Vancouver on Dec. 1 at the request of U.S. authorities.

Canada said last Friday that it will allow an extradition request for Meng to proceed.

Meng is chief financial officer of Chinese tech giant Huawei and the daughter of its founder.
