Huawei Finally Banned | May 20, 2022

Good News!

After pressure being put on the government, they have announced it will ban Huawei from Canada’s 5G network!

For years, Conservatives have been calling on the Liberal government to respect the consensus among our Five Eyes allies and ban Huawei from Canada’s 5G network, and for years, the Liberal government’s lack of action on this decision has been an international embarrassment.

In the years of delay, Canadian telecommunications companies purchased hundreds of millions of dollars of Huawei equipment which will now need to be removed from their networks at enormous expense. Either the Liberal government is going to be asked for compensation from these companies or costs will be passed on to consumers. In either case, Justin Trudeau is forcing Canadians to bear the cost of his inaction and failure.

I will continue to stand up for our national security and Canada’s interests at home and abroad.
