Chinese Communist's disinformation campaign against MP Kenny Chiu a troubling case, researchers say
Globe & Mail: "During the 2021 federal election campaign Mr. Chiu’s proposal was condemned on Chinese-language social media, alleging his plan would “suppress the Chinese community” in Canada. The comments were disseminated on apps and websites widely used by some Canadians of Chinese origin, who make up approximately half of his riding’s population.
"What is alarming is “these tactics could be deployed against any group in an information and psychological warfare campaign,” the authors say. “In short it has high potential for interference in Canada’s electoral process by foreign state actors and thus severely threatens the country’s liberal democracy.”"
