Liberals waive security review for Chinese takeover of high-tech firm

The Trudeau government is allowing Chinese investors to buy a Vancouver high-tech firm without a formal national security review even though Canada and many of its allies use the company’s patented satellite communications technology for security, public safety and defence.

Hytera Communications of Shenzhen, China, is acquiring Vancouver-based Norsat International Inc., a company with military customers including the Pentagon that is also delivering a satellite communication system this year for the Canadian Coast Guard.

The government decided after a preliminary security screening that further examination of the deal was not necessary.

    The Chinese are colonizing Hongcouver without firing s shot.

      It’s a takeover.

    • PaxCan

      At least the Europeans brought modernity and civilization to the people they colonized whereas the Chinese bring nothing.

      • Exile1981

        Gangs and corrupt public officials.

      So the people who created “the Chinese Exclusion Act” were right after all?

  • shasta

    A not unexpected result from our commie wanna-be government.

    • BillyHW

      He admires China’s basic dictatorship.

    Yes, no screams of collusion from the Liberal Party worshiping media. I’m sure that nobody is interested that little Justin’s fascination with the Chinese communists, or his attending parties with commie Chinese billionaires, has anything to do with him rubber stamping Chinese takeover of high tech industries, or his excitement of Chinese money pouring into the oil sands. The media is more interested in fake stories about Trump. And I’m sure there is nothing shady about that little holiday to a muslim con man’s island.

    While we worry about being killed by muslims the Chinese take over continues apace. I read a story the other day that Krauss Maffei was now owned by the Chinese government. Krauss Maffei has a long history in the railroad industry, but they were also the designers and builders of the Leopard tanks that half the free world uses for their defence.

    • PaxCan

      I wholeheartedly agree!

      While we justifiably worry about Muslim settlement in the West people seem to be unaware that it’s not just the Muslims who are colonizing us and threatening our way of life.

    CIA did not named this person of interest.

    Jesus. He’s copying the Clintons completely. Setting up a phoney “Foundation”. Phoney speeches to launder donations and payoffs. And now undoubtedly taking bribes through his foundation as payoffs for giving the Reds military tech. Better check his and his aides bathrooms for unprotected servers.

      They use the same commie hand book. (Alinsky)
      At the end of the book they have NO competition from the people….none.

      Why not? It worked for the Clintons.

    The Chinese are buying up our resources, buying up our real estate, buying up our high-tech companies, and it’s gotten to the point where you can’t spit like a Chinaman in major cities without hitting one.

    The Chinese colonization of Canada continues apace and no one seems to care so let’s just rename the country to Chinada and be done with it.

  • Cat-astrophe

    You know, I like the way China gets things done.

  • Cat-astrophe

    I do not even like Chinese food. Especially the stuff from China.
    I’ve met lots of Chinese engineers and technicians, they are nice people, VERY nationalistic, if you like that sort of thing….

    How do you not allow someone to use your satellite?
    It seems to me…..
    a lot of people are able to hop on and off a satellite whenever they want to
    It must be easy to crack the codes or something
