Should Canada ban #Huawei from 5G? @brianleecrowley makes the case that “both Huawei’s behaviour and that of its Chinese Communist Party overlords is such that Canada should follow the US, Australia and New Zealand and forbid Huawei’s involvement in 5G.”…
This debate over #Huawei’s involvement in 5G was recently highlighted as part of the @TorontoStar’s ‘The Big Debate’ series. Writing for the other side of the debate was @Stockwell_Day. #cdnpoli #cdnnatsec #cdnfp #cdnecon…
This has attracted the attention of Huawei employees, who are encouraging others (including potentially thousands of fellow employees) on China’s preferred social media platform, WeChat, to vote for the ‘no’ side of the debate. #cdnpoli #cdnfp @binghuiyin

[LONG THREAD] 1/ You know what makes a mockery of Canada’s commitment to human rights? Inviting Trita Parsi (@tparsi), the Iranian regime’s chief apologist in the West, to testify before Parliament’s Subcommittee on Human Rts, as part of #IranAccountabilityWeek. #cdnpoli #cdnfp
2/ I hope the members of the subcommittee(@anitavandenbeld, @DavidSweetMP, @CHardcastleNDP, @DavidAndersonSK, @pfragiskatos, @iamIqraKhalid, @MarwanTabbaraMP) read this. And one of them can explain why Parsi was invited.
3/ Background: Parsi is the founder of NIAC (@niacouncil), a lobby group devoted to normalizing relations with Iran’s regime. They deny being a lobby group. But their internal documents show they are. (…)

On @CBCNews to comment on the ongoing spat between #China and #Canada, CIC President @benrowswell explained that there are two ways of looking at power in the international system. There is the power to force, and there is the power to convince.… #cdnpoli
"#China is experimenting with the former right now, to see how it can throw its weight around. But it's actually frittering away the other kind of power. It's making it more difficult for other countries to follow China's lead." @benrowswell on @CBCNews #cdnnatsec #Huawei

In 2010, Canada did $1 billion in exports to Saudi Arabia. To put it in persepective, right now we do ~$300 billion with the US. A break down in relations is never great but this ain’t exactly going to kill us. #cdnfp
Where this might hurt is the ~25k students from Saudi that study in Canada. But these students are going to have a hard time getting US visas under Trump.
Also potential for trouble of Saudi Arabia "convinces" its "allies" to follow suit. But Canada has such a small footprint in the Middle East that I have to think, again, while this isn't great, it's not the total end of the world.

The Liberal government just voted with the conservatives to abandon their plan to reestablish relations between Canada and Iran. #cdnpoli #cdnFP
The Liberals broke their promise to the Iranian-Canadian community which sent two Liberal MPs to Ottawa in the last election. #Iran #cdnpoli #cdnFP
Both Iranian-Canadian Liberal MPs, @AliEhsassi & @MajidJowhari, were absent during an important motion that could impact hundreds of thousands of their constituents. What could have been more important? #cdnpoli #cdnFP #Iran
