Canada has been trying to appease China since 1989 when the Chinese government slaughtered 3,000 unarmed protesters in Tiananmen Square. Don't forget about the genocide against and the invasion of Tibet, resulting in the deaths of 1.2 MILLION Tibetans. And how about the Chinese genocide of the Uighars? China is a totalitarian dictatorship, and Huawei is one of their selling points.
