Canada Foreign Minister Says Former Envoy's Huawei Comments Made Job Untenable

According to Reuters, Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said that former ambassador to China John McCallum’s comments on a Huawei executive’s high-profile extradition case, had made it untenable for him to stay in the job.

Freeland told reporters that McCallum had not accurately conveyed the government’s thinking on the situation.

As a result, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Saturday said that he had fired McCallum.
