Re: HUAWEI in Canada. And right beside (900ft!) the USA border.
It is far more stealthy/sneaky if Cisco's contract manufacturer were to slip a backdoor in their firmware than putting it in Huawei. Also if one were to switch a critical shipment of Cisco gears with fake one that come with the backdoor... It is not like China have not made fake Cisco gear and sold them before.
Why have evidence pointing back to yourself when you could redirect that to your competitor and their unsuspecting customers?
