“For the security of Canadians, Huawei should be banned from our 5G networks,” says former head of CSIS.
A petition created by David Morrish is calling for the Federal government to ban Huawei from Canada’s 5G Telecom Networks.
The petition has already been signed by over 57,000 people, and the more signatures it gets the more of a clear message will be sent that Canadians want Huawei banned.
Here’s the text of the petition:
“Fellow Canadian Citizens,
I am calling on all you of you to sign this petition to have Huawei removed from Canada’s critical infrastructure. This includes banning Huawei from participating and or building Canada’s 5G Networks and all STEM fields and or industries.
Almost all of our allies have banned or removed Huawei from their critical infrastructure and it’s time we do the same!
FBI Director Christopher Wray, CIA Director Mike Pompeo, and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats have all publically stated several times that Huawei is using its technology to spy on companies with the objective of stealing its intellectual property.
Huawei is not an ethical player in the market place!
In Canada, several prominent individuals such as former CSIS Director Richard Fadden have stated similar concerns. Mr. Fadden also wrote an Opinion piece in the Globe and Mail dated January 21, 2019.
“For the security of Canadians, Huawei should be banned from our 5G networks” Quote from Richard Fadden!
Richard Fadden Opinion Piece
Huawei allegedly built the company from stolen Nortel Intellectual Property. The Chinese government clearly does not respect our laws or country! The Chinese government under its law has frequently directed Chinese Corporations to participate in espionage.
Ban Huawei Now! They are targeting our intellectual property and stealing years of hard work with the goal of selling it back to us at a lower cost!
Every year thousands of large corporations spend large sums of money protecting their Intelectual Property. If Huawei is permitted to participate and build infrastructure on our telecommunications networks that will place all of us at a serious disadvantage and render our defenses mostly useless.”
I have signed the petition, and I highly encourage you to do the same. We must do everything we can to spread the word, protect Canada’s National Security, and ensure Huawei is banned.
