By Alex Boutilier Ottawa Bureau Wed., May 15, 2019 OTTAWA–The federal government is still weighing whether Huawei can help build Canada’s 5G infrastructure as the U.S. appears poised to completely ban the Chinese telecom giant. Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said Wednesday that the government continues to review “all potential suppliers” for Canada’s next generation of wireless networks from both a technological and national security perspective. Goodale was responding to reports that U.S. President Donald Trump is ready to sign an executive order banning the Chinese company from American 5G networks. “We obviously pay careful attention to what our allies are saying and doing. Some have expressed views, others have not,” Goodale said outside the House of Commons. “We’ll take all that into account, but we want to make the very best decision for Canada with respect to the technology and also on national … [Read more...] about Canada weighs Huawei’s future in 5G as U.S. ban looms

By Heather Mallick Star Columnist Tues., May 7, 2019 By calling Canada’s claim over the Northwest Passage “illegitimate,” U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday did that traditional Trump administration standup act, offending everyone while offering no comedy whatsoever. The main offence lay in giving a crude blustering speech in Finland to the peaceable Arctic Council, where eight countries — Canada, the U.S., Russia and other Nordic nations — discuss co-operation and environmental protection. Even though China is given observer status, it’s not the place for threats about security and economic matters. The speech went down badly with all diplomats, the U.S. played rogue, so no change there then. The Northwest Passage, in all its forms, runs between 19,000 of Canada’s northernmost islands. That is a fact. That the U.S. disagrees with this fact is not new. Canada and the U.S. formally agreed to disagree in a … [Read more...] about Arctic attack on Canada leaves Pompeo adrift at sea

By Tara Deschamps Special to the Star Mon., April 29, 2019 New European rules that will make tech firms liable for copyright violations on their platforms have been both lauded by musicians and artists and lambasted by those who champion intellectual freedom. But one thing that’s not in dispute is that similar rules won’t be coming to Canada any time soon, experts say. The copyright directive, endorsed by 19 European countries in mid-April, will compel companies such as Google and Facebook to ensure copyrighted content — everything from music and films to news and books — isn’t posted on their platforms without a creator’s permission. Some tech firms may have to acquire licences to host such material. The EU’s 28 member states now have two years to adopt the rules and create their own policies. The reforms have been touted as a way to rein in powerful tech firms and restore revenues to creative industries, often paid fractions … [Read more...] about Canada likely won’t copycat EU copyright rules, experts say.

MAYNILA- Kinalampag ng grupong EcoWaste Coalition ang Embahada ng Canada dito nitong Lunes upang igiit na dapat nang kunin ng bansa ang basurang itinambak nito sa Pilipinas higit 5 taon na ang nakalilipas. Bitbit ang mga placard, iginiit ng grupo na hindi katanggap-tanggap ang pagtatambak ng Canada ng basura sa Pilipinas. Nauna nang binalaan ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte ang Canada na kunin ang mahigit sa 100 container ng basurang itinambak nito kung hindi ay posibleng magdeklara ng giyera ang Pilipinas. "Ang salita ng ating Presidente ay sumasalamin kung gaano ka-urgent, gaano kaseryoso na dapat nang kunin ang mga basurang ito. Hindi na ito dapat nagtatagal pa sa Pilipinas," ani Aileen Locero, national coordinator ng EcoWaste Coalition. Siniguro naman ng Embahada ng Canada noong nakaraang linggo na nakikipag-ugnayan ito sa pamahalaan ng Pilipinas upang maresolba ang problema sa basura. -ulat ni Henry Atuelan, ABS-CBN News Bisitahin ang Patrol.PH para sa iba pang mga balita. … [Read more...] about News ‘Hindi tapunan’: Embahada ng Canada kinalampag ng EcoWaste Coalition
