Former Canadian security chiefs worry about Huawei's increasing presence in Canada
Now, that concern has migrated north of the border according to Canada's most widely read newspaper. The Globe and Mail says that three former directors of the country's top security agencies are recommending that the Canadian government cut all ties with Huawei. Ward Elcock, John Adams and Richard Fadden all agree with the assessment of the U.S. intelligence community that Huawei's smartphones and networking equipment could be used for spying. There is also concern that Huawei could discover trade secrets from U.S. companies working on next-gen 5G technology.
But the Canadian government is putting on its best imitation of Mad Magazine's Alfred "What, me worry?" Neuman. Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale told the Globe and Mail that the country is keeping an eye on Huawei and the company does not represent a cybersecurity risk in Canada. However, security experts say that Canada has not been as diligent as other countries, such as the U.K., when it comes to testing Huawei's equipment for its potential to assist in espionage.
