Canada carried out ‘extensive’ examination ahead of Huawei, ZTE ban: Minister Mendicino

Canada's Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino told a press conference on Thursday that the federal government conducted an "extensive and thorough security examination" of 5G wireless communications technologies, including high-risk providers. This is what led the country to ban China's Huawei and ZTE from Canadian 5G networks. He added that the government will table legislation to protect the national security of telecommunications.
