“Ottawa to scrutinize Chinese acquisition of gold miner as Huawei case reaches crucial stage” by Gabriel Friedman, Financial Post

Financial Post quotes Ottawa lawyer Andrew House in an article on foreign investment and national security.

“I think that what you’re seeing is a very interesting mix of security considerations and political considerations,” said Andrew House, counsel at law firm Fasken LLP, who served as the chief of staff to the Ministers of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness under former prime minister Stephen Harper’s government.

 

House said that the Investment Canada Act allows the government to review transactions for national security reasons, without having to disclose its specific reasons.
