Harper says will weigh security concerns on any BlackBerry deal - Bloomberg

Oct 18 (Reuters) - BlackBerry Ltd, the struggling smartphone maker seeking a buyer, should be wary of any deals that would raise national-security concerns, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said on Friday, according to a report.

Canada would examine those issues in any foreign bid for Waterloo, Ontario-based BlackBerry that requires a review under the nation's takeover law, Harper said in an interview with Bloomberg in Brussels.
