The national body that markets Canada as a tourist destination is halting new advertisements in China as tensions heat up following the arrest of Huawei Technologies Co.’s finance chief, according to CBC News.

Destination Canada, wholly owned by the federal government, and its partners decided to “temporarily pause or postpone our current marketing efforts in China,” the CBC quoted the organization’s representative as saying. The marketing primarily promoted winter activities across Canada on Chinese social media, the representative said.
