News in Review Huawei Arrest: Canada Caught in a Political Tug of War

The arrest of a top executive from Chinese company Huawei has placed Canada in the middle of a political tug of war. In December 2018, Canadian authorities detained Meng Wanzhou at the Vancouver airport at the request of U.S. law officials. Meng is the daughter of the founder of Huawei, the largest technical communications company in the world. She remains in Canada while awaiting possible extradition to the U.S. on charges of fraud and violating international sanctions. Her arrest has heightened diplomatic tensions between China and Canada while also raising security concerns about giving Huawei access to Canada's 5G network.
