U.S. Senators Urging Trudeau to Bar Huawei from Canada's 5G Network

Warner and Rubio are on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. As you are aware, Huawei is not a normal private-sector company.

The Globe and Mail reported the chiefs of six USA intelligence agencies and three former heads of Canada's spy services say they consider Huawei one of the world's top cyber intelligence threats.

Due to the open nature of intelligence sharing between the USA and its closest allies, the Canadian government would be able to obtain knowledge of any specific threats that substantiate the US posture toward the Chinese company.

They strongly advised the head of the USA neighboring state against Chinese involvement in Canada's ongoing implementation of the fifth generation network to upgrade the mobile service. Specifically, he claimed that Canada has "a very advanced relationship with our telecommunications providers, something that is different from most other countries", adding, "We have a program that is very deep in terms of working on increasing that broader resilience piece especially as we are looking at the next-generation telecommunications networks". The senators warn Canada to "reconsider Huawei's inclusion in any aspect of Canada's 5G development, introduction, and maintenance".

China's stocks fell sharply to a four-and-a-half-year low today, as a sell-off on Wall Street spread to Asia . The moves came after both indexes on Thursday logged their worst one-day drops since February 2016.

Republican Marco Rubio and vice-chair Democrat Mark Warner said in a letter sent on Thursday, and obtained by The Globe and Mail, that Canada can't be sure Huawei isn't being controlled by the Chinese government.

They pointed at "serious concerns" about inadequate safeguards, "given what the United States and other allies know about Huawei". The Canadian Centre for Cyber Security is Canada's designated federal agency tasked with cybersecurity.

The US and Australia have reportedly blocked Huawei from supplying the equipment to connect new smartphones to the internet.
