NEW YORK -- A trade delegation from Canada's British Columbia has called off a trip to China as concerns grew about possible retaliation for the arrest of Huawei Technologies' chief financial officer in Vancouver earlier this month.

The province "has suspended the China leg of its Asian forestry trade mission due to the international judicial process underway relating to a senior official" at Huawei, said Bruce Ralston, minister of jobs, trade and technology, in a statement dated Sunday.
