Huawei Canada hires new lobbyist

Dan Moulton, an Ottawa-based senior consultant at Crestview Strategy, has registered to communicate on behalf of the Chinese technology company with five government departments, members of Parliament, senators, the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) and its civil service counterpart, the Privy Council Office (PCO). He will communicate with government officials about Huawei’s “current and long term investments” in Canada, including “the employment of more than 900 Canadians,” as well as the impact on consumers of “5G technology provided by Huawei,” according to the registration. “We do not publicly comment on our work with clients,” Moulton said in a statement to The Logic. Huawei Canada president Eric Li is already registered to lobby the government, but on a largely different list of topics including the country’s foreign direct investment policies, its role in international telecommunications-standards bodies and the company’s collaborations with academic and research institutions.
