Erin O’Toole Says China Stole Old Nortel Technology

Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole is accusing Chinese telecom company Huawei of stealing defunct Canadian firm Nortel’s technology. O’Toole made the allegation of industrial espionage as he announced his party is pushing the Liberals to make a decision within 30 days on which companies can provide Canada’s next-generation 5G wireless internet technology. The Tories are tabling a motion in the House of Commons demanding the government decide whether Huawei ought to be banned. O’Toole wants the matter debated in the Commons and is pushing for a new strategy to deal with China, saying the Liberals have not done enough stand up to its intimidation.
