A position that is fuzzy to Ottawa on TikTok

Une position floue à Ottawa sur TikTok

Unlike Donald Trump, the federal government maintains a position that is fuzzy to the application of chinese TikTok.

It must be said that the federal government is in a situation rather delicate after the case of Huawei, which has caused much ink to flow in recent months.

Recall that the financial director of the giant chinese telecommunication, Meng Wanzhou, has been arrested in Canada in December 2018 at the request of the Americans.

Shortly after, two Canadians, Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor, were arrested and detained in China for alleged espionage. Several experts are questioning the possibility of whether it is retaliation.

When questioned about the application TikTok, Ottawa remains cautious.

“Our government continues to work in close collaboration with the agencies and leaders in the technology sector to ensure that Canadians apply best practices to safely navigate on the internet and that our systems are secure,” said the office of the minister of public Safety and emergency preparedness, by e-mail.
