LESLYN LEWIS: Canada, it's time to refocus on China
"Canada must demand fair play and respect from China. To do this we must use every tool at our disposal to reverse the failures of Trudeau’s timid approach."
Brian Mulroney has called for Canada to reconsider its relationship with China and gave credit to Justin Trudeau for not releasing Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou in exchange for the two Canadians, Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig.
"We are of course, disappointed with the decision and the next step taken by the Chinese, in the case of the two Michaels, we offer all of our support and sympathies to the families," said Trudeau.
BCE Inc. has chosen to work with Ericsson—a Swedish telecommunications company—to build its Canadian 5G network.
The US government has previously said there is “no evidence to suggest that 5G has anything to do with COVID-19," or that 5G poses health risks, in general.
