Senator apologizes for saying MP Chiu lied about CCP campaign to undermine his campaign
Globe & Mail: 'In an article in the magazine Policy Options on Jan. 4, two researchers at McGill University said the disinformation campaign against Mr. Chiu was a disturbing demonstration of how propaganda tactics could be used by hostile foreign actors to interfere with Canada’s political system.
'Sze-Fung Lee and Benjamin Fung, experts on information warfare, suggested a countermeasure to discourage future disinformation efforts would be a public registry to track foreign influence.
'The disinformation effort against Mr. Chiu was also documented by the Atlantic Council think tank’s Digital Forensic Research Lab (DFRLab).
'During the 2021 election campaign, Mr. Chiu’s proposal was condemned on Chinese-language social media and one article said his plan would suppress the Chinese community in Canada. Criticism was disseminated on apps and websites widely used by Canadians of Chinese origin, a group that made up approximately half of the B.C. riding that Mr. Chiu represented.'
Senator Oh continues to suggest Chiu's campaign was not the target of a CCP disinformation operation, which makes one wonder: Oh Canada civil servant? or Oh Communist Chinese Party toadie?
