Global News published this video item, entitled “Global National: May 20, 2022 | Huawei’s 5G ban further complicates Canada-China relations” – below is their description.

In tonight’s top story: Canada’s decision to ban Huawei and ZTE from the country’s 5G telecommunications network will be a blow to an already tense relationship with China, experts warn.

Although it’s not yet clear if China will retaliate beyond strong condemnation of Canada’s decision, experts say the possibility exists that the risk has increased for Canadian travellers and businesses in China. Abigail Bimman looks at what a potential retaliation by Chiana could look like.

Huawei’s 5G ban will have a greater impact on smaller players in the telecom industry than on the biggest carriers and could end up costing Canadians more on their wireless bills, observers say. As Anne Gaviola reports, putting the onus on carriers to strip their existing infrastructure of anything Huawei-made is going to hurt small companies providing vital services to Canadians living in remote and rural areas.

After receiving 51.4 per cent support in his leadership review, Kenney announced Wednesday evening that he plans to step down as UCP leader. Following a caucus meeting Thursday, the decision was made for Kenney to remain in his post until a new leader can be chosen.

Kenny says he will remain focused on “people’s business” until new UCP leader is chosen. Tom Vernon reports.

Recent cases of monkeypox have researchers in Canada and elsewhere in the world trying to figure out just how widespread the virus is.

Just under a “couple dozen of people” are under investigation for monkeypox in Canada after the country confirmed its first cases this week, said Canada’s chief public health officer Dr. Theresa Tam. Jamie Muraucher reports on the country’s top doctors’ current assessment of the situation.

In Ukraine, the Kremlin said the last Ukrainian soldiers in Mariupol’s Azovstal steel plant have surrendered on Friday, amid concerns about how Russia will treat them.

The International Committee of the Red Cross registered them as prisoners of war, as part of its role in ensuring the humane treatment of POWs under the Geneva Conventions. Redmond Shannon has the latest developments on the situation in Ukraine.

Amid a rise in shootings in major Canadian cities, some experts who study firearms trafficking say the country needs to drastically increase the number of firearms traced through the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). In part three of Story of a Gun, Tracy Tong looks at how firearm tracing could help lessen the number of gun-related crimes.

Plus, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall departed Canada Thursday night after a three-day tour that began in St. John’s, N.L., with a solemn moment of reflection on residential school deaths and ended in the North with a meeting with First Nations chiefs on climate change. While not apologizing to survivors of the residential school system, the prince said community members and leaders at every stop emphasized the importance of reconciliation. Heather Yourex-West has more.
