Conservative Statement on Huawei and Canada’s 5G Network

February 13, 2020

Pierre Paul-Hus, Conservative Shadow Minister for Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness and Glen Motz Associate Shadow Minister for Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, issued the following statement today regarding Huawei and Canada’s 5G network:
“For months the Trudeau Liberals have ignored Canada’s security agencies and refused to take a position on Huawei and its possible participation in Canada’s 5G network for purely partisan political reasons.  This has put Canada offside with our G7 allies and threatens the future of Five Eyes intelligence sharing.
“On the same day a major telecommunications company announced their intention to launch a 5G network in Canada later this year using Huawei Technologies, the United States charged Huawei with 16 counts, including ‘conspiracy to steal trade secrets’.  This should concern all Canadians.
“Justin Trudeau and his Liberal government must take immediate action to protect our national security and Canadians’ privacy and ban Huawei from Canada’s 5G network.”
