Cell phone outage in Canada and Huawei

For the entire transcript of this interview, please continue reading.

0:00:00.030,0:00:06.720
Brett Johnson it is July the 8th 2019

0:00:03.929,0:00:08.670
and I’d noticed something interesting

0:00:06.720,0:00:11.460
happened yesterday it looked like what

0:00:08.670,0:00:14.280
may be the biggest cellphone outage ever

0:00:11.460,0:00:15.630
across all major networks and I think

0:00:14.280,0:00:18.869
it’s still affecting some people in some

0:00:15.630,0:00:21.539
areas it happened in Canada and parts of

0:00:18.869,0:00:23.420
the US yesterday and that sure looked

0:00:21.539,0:00:26.670
like a dress rehearsal for something

0:00:23.420,0:00:29.730
what do you think about that I find it

0:00:26.670,0:00:32.130
absolutely fascinating and there’s a

0:00:29.730,0:00:33.899
number of areas about that that that

0:00:32.130,0:00:36.000
what took place that are very

0:00:33.899,0:00:38.190
interesting for one thing it was the

0:00:36.000,0:00:40.680
voice online it you could still send

0:00:38.190,0:00:43.530
text messages and so on so the system

0:00:40.680,0:00:45.750
was up and running but the voice was all

0:00:43.530,0:00:48.660
blocked out and as you said it was all

0:00:45.750,0:00:51.449
of the major suppliers cellphone

0:00:48.660,0:00:54.690
suppliers and the main minor players too

0:00:51.449,0:00:58.350
so basically it was a system-wide thing

0:00:54.690,0:01:00.449
now things go wrong in technology we all

0:00:58.350,0:01:02.489
understand that but for this sort of

0:01:00.449,0:01:07.760
thing to happen that that that way I

0:01:02.489,0:01:10.560
find extraordinarily suspicious and I

0:01:07.760,0:01:12.210
just didn’t listen couple of little

0:01:10.560,0:01:14.580
facts out of this that I think are

0:01:12.210,0:01:17.100
pertinent and important is that’s

0:01:14.580,0:01:20.790
probably not an accident this is easily

0:01:17.100,0:01:22.770
an attack of some sort so who would be

0:01:20.790,0:01:24.000
the logical player now let me point out

0:01:22.770,0:01:26.189
a couple little things we’ve talked

0:01:24.000,0:01:29.670
before about the company the Chinese

0:01:26.189,0:01:31.530
company well way and there was famously

0:01:29.670,0:01:33.210
this is a big case followed a lot the

0:01:31.530,0:01:38.159
United States and Canada in particular

0:01:33.210,0:01:42.240
but the main executive of Huawei who was

0:01:38.159,0:01:44.549
in Canada was indicted and in the United

0:01:42.240,0:01:46.140
States and we asked for extradition now

0:01:44.549,0:01:49.439
that case is still playing its way

0:01:46.140,0:01:51.630
forward that person that executive is

0:01:49.439,0:01:54.000
the daughter I mean she’s an adult but

0:01:51.630,0:01:56.340
she’s the daughter of one of the senior

0:01:54.000,0:01:58.530
people back in China very wealthy family

0:01:56.340,0:02:01.110
and so on so they’re totally connected

0:01:58.530,0:02:02.939
in as we all know why way associates and

0:02:01.110,0:02:04.140
works with Chinese intelligence in the

0:02:02.939,0:02:06.570
military in the government they’re

0:02:04.140,0:02:08.459
they’re tight in it’s a it’s an arm that

0:02:06.570,0:02:10.860
represents the Chinese government and

0:02:08.459,0:02:12.110
they do a lot of intelligence work and

0:02:10.860,0:02:16.430
gathering of things

0:02:12.110,0:02:20.780
Chinese the Chinese so this executive is

0:02:16.430,0:02:24.170
still in jail in are being held in and

0:02:20.780,0:02:26.420
Canada pending this this extra day

0:02:24.170,0:02:31.840
extradition case the United States well

0:02:26.420,0:02:35.060
just who is the largest supplier of the

0:02:31.840,0:02:37.040
3G and 2g equipment which is the

0:02:35.060,0:02:39.260
announced in today’s age that’s right

0:02:37.040,0:02:41.540
now the backbone of most of

0:02:39.260,0:02:43.760
communications in Canada and elsewhere

0:02:41.540,0:02:46.130
in the United States – who’s the major

0:02:43.760,0:02:49.220
supplier of that equipment none other

0:02:46.130,0:02:50.780
than our little Huawei so you know this

0:02:49.220,0:02:53.780
who is in position

0:02:50.780,0:02:55.730
who has motive and I think you know

0:02:53.780,0:02:58.040
tough to conclude that it’s anybody else

0:02:55.730,0:03:00.290
but China now it’s conceivable that it

0:02:58.040,0:03:02.120
was just a pure accident it’s

0:03:00.290,0:03:05.090
conceivable that it was a terrorist act

0:03:02.120,0:03:07.520
by an on but not by China but by some

0:03:05.090,0:03:10.160
terrorist group trying to attack Canada

0:03:07.520,0:03:12.770
in some way as well the Raps the rumors

0:03:10.160,0:03:14.720
are that it actually was a specific

0:03:12.770,0:03:17.390
switching mechanism that failed across

0:03:14.720,0:03:20.630
the board multiple of it so you know

0:03:17.390,0:03:23.269
your your hypothesis is looking a lot

0:03:20.630,0:03:24.620
better than any other one well exactly

0:03:23.269,0:03:27.980
right I mean if you’ve got you’ve got

0:03:24.620,0:03:31.340
motive and you’ve got the capability to

0:03:27.980,0:03:32.780
do all of this out of Huawei so you know

0:03:31.340,0:03:35.060
how that would be who I would look at

0:03:32.780,0:03:36.980
first it’s like you know I would compare

0:03:35.060,0:03:40.580
it if I could do an analogy to a murder

0:03:36.980,0:03:43.640
case you know if you find somebody the

0:03:40.580,0:03:45.019
spouse dead at home you know who’s the

0:03:43.640,0:03:47.420
first person the police look at you know

0:03:45.019,0:03:48.830
the surviving spouse because 50% of the

0:03:47.420,0:03:50.480
time they’re the ones that they

0:03:48.830,0:03:52.850
committed the murder in a case like this

0:03:50.480,0:03:55.459
you know the person who has motive and

0:03:52.850,0:03:57.080
has access to commit that crime you know

0:03:55.459,0:03:59.390
is the probably the person you need to

0:03:57.080,0:04:01.370
be looking at so for this to be a pure

0:03:59.390,0:04:03.620
accident it’s possible not likely

0:04:01.370,0:04:06.260
for it to be somebody else possible not

0:04:03.620,0:04:08.750
likely but for it to be China’s you know

0:04:06.260,0:04:11.060
pretty likely so I think Canada you’ve

0:04:08.750,0:04:13.970
been given a warning shot across the bow

0:04:11.060,0:04:16.489
and China is telling you through the

0:04:13.970,0:04:18.440
offices of Huawei to let that lady go

0:04:16.489,0:04:20.950
and to cease and desist and to do what

0:04:18.440,0:04:23.870
you’re told by China now we’ll see what

0:04:20.950,0:04:25.460
what the government and in Canada does

0:04:23.870,0:04:27.050
as a result but

0:04:25.460,0:04:28.729
I think that they’ll they’ll take the

0:04:27.050,0:04:30.680
low road and try to do as little as they

0:04:28.729,0:04:33.050
can and I think what you’ll see is this

0:04:30.680,0:04:34.699
become a non-issue in Canada I doubt

0:04:33.050,0:04:36.370
you’ll see any reporting on it by the

0:04:34.699,0:04:39.740
end of this week

0:04:36.370,0:04:42.770
if we go with Trudeau’s record he will

0:04:39.740,0:04:45.430
do some kind of stammering word salad if

0:04:42.770,0:04:48.169
he mentions it at all that will say

0:04:45.430,0:04:50.960
multiple things at once and so nothing

0:04:48.169,0:04:52.669
at all Brad thank you very much you know

0:04:50.960,0:04:54.919
what I think that’s proud you probably

0:04:52.669,0:04:56.110
banged it and frankly I’m embarrassed I

0:04:54.919,0:05:01.000
didn’t take it myself

0:04:56.110,0:05:01.000
thanks very much all right thank you

0:05:17.100,0:05:19.160
you

0:05:35.830,0:05:37.890
you
