The Canadian military has warned the government that allowing Huawei on Canada’s 5G network would compromise national security.
A senior official has told the Globe and Mail that military top brass, including Canadian Forces chief of defence staff General Jonathan Vance, advised Trudeau to implement a total ban on the company’s technology.
The prime minister is expected to make a decision on whether or not Huawei will be allowed to operate on the network in the near future.
The US, New Zealand and Australia have already announced a ban on the company. The UK has stated that Huawei will play a limited role in its 5G network.
