The Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Foreign Affairs, and the Honourable Harjit Sajjan, Minister of National Defence, today issued the following statement:
“In these challenging times, it is all the more important to defend our own health care organizations, national interest, and that of our allies, the United Kingdom and the United States, from malicious state actors attempting to steal information and intellectual property.
“We must call out irresponsible state behaviour that violates the rules-based international order and strive to live and work in a cyber environment that is open, stable, peaceful and secure. In Canada, we are committed to defending these principles in cyberspace, especially when they touch on the interests of Canadians.”
