Canada-China Relations committee  First, you must acknowledge that this issue affects all departments and all areas of society and that there must be an active, not passive, education program. Right now, the Canadian Centre for Cyber Security is providing some great information. The information is available on a

Canada-China Relations committee  The issue isn't that the infrastructure has declined, but that it's a victim of failing technology. As I said earlier, there's very little quality control in computer programming. We rely on the fact that corrective measures will be taken in the future to address programming fla

Canada-China Relations committee  I don't see this as a good thing. Again, it's all talk and no action. The committee members should go out into the field and talk to the workers who maintain the equipment. This would give them the chance to understand that all the bureaucratic complexities are causing a number

Steve Waterhouse

Canada-China Relations committee  Because we have weak laws, they can bribe. As Mr. Juneau-Katsuya said, they can invest into the political system and then work their way around and even modify laws to their advantage. Yes, we are a commodity to them.

Canada-China Relations committee  First of all, it was to acknowledge the threat that was knocking on their door without them knowing about it. In a few instances, CSIS went along and just informed them and counselled them on the best course of action to take to protect their network, but that was it. Compare th

Canada-China Relations committee  In its 2020 report, CSIS identified China as a clear threat to Canada's security. Mr. Vigneault, the director of CSIS, made this clear in a speech on April 9. You may not be interested in geopolitics, but geopolitics is interested in you. There's always a threat to Canada's secur

Canada-China Relations committee  We were an obstacle that prevented the Soviet Union from reaching the United States. As Professor Leuprecht said earlier, China comes to Canada to buy groceries, so to speak, because we have the material that they need for their production. We have plenty of clean water and we h

Canada-China Relations committee  That's what keeps me up at night, because you never know where they have access to the code. As we saw in a few attacks a few years ago, some NSA tools to get access to some systems were leaked out, so there is access to electronic tools to get access to some systems, and this is

Steve Waterhouse

Canada-China Relations committee  We are safer certainly than the U.S., because we have fewer companies in the U.S. than in Canada, so as often as they can review the code, review the defence posture, they will be safer every time, but this has to be done every time there is a new threat. They don't perform these

Canada-China Relations committee  It's a different landscape than what it was 20 or 30 years ago, when the economy was favourable to bringing business back to China, and they were very favourable to that idea. People were working over there. We had very cheap pricing, and this is how the economy was rolling big t

Steve Waterhouse

Canada-China Relations committee  To update the ways to make this possible, we also need laws that are restrictive enough to discourage some people. We recently spoke about Bill C-11, which concerns the ability to protect individuals' personal data. Without a definition of what constitutes a cyber conflict, on w
