According to Reuters, Huawei is a major supplier of telecommunications equipment in Canada, and Bradley served as chairman of the 5G Canada Council.He is also an important spokesman for Huawei Canada.
Reuters said,Bradley's departure comes as Huawei is under increasing scrutiny from the West. Poland has just arrested a Huawei employee suspected of espionage, which may exacerbate Western doubts about Huawei.
But there is a big difference between this interpretation and Bradley's own statement.
Bradley said in his leadership,He intends to continue to advise the company.
"As we enter 2019, it's time to make a change," Bradley wrote in his post. "I still believe in all the values that our Canadian team represents. I believe that our team is one of the most innovative teams in the world."
