TORONTO - A Canadian naval engineer is accused of trying to send classified information on Canada’s shipbuilding strategy and marine sovereignty to the Chinese government.

Qing Quentin Huang, 53, from Waterdown, Ont., was arrested in nearby Burlington on Saturday, just two days after the RCMP say they became aware of the allegations against him.

The RCMP allege that they learned on Thursday that Huang was taking steps to pass on classified information to China relating to Canada’s national shipbuilding strategy.

Huang is a Canadian citizen and an employee of Lloyd’s Register, a subcontractor to Irving Shipbuilding Inc., the RCMP said Sunday at a news conference to announce the arrest.

“These are documents of a confidential and sensitive nature to the government of Canada that relate to their vessels that support our marine services in relation to sovereignty here in Canada,” said RCMP Chief Supt. Jennifer Strachan.
