Feds unveil plan to tackle fake news, interference in 2019 election

The federal government is unveiling a "sweeping series" of new measures aimed at further shoring up Canada's electoral system from foreign interference, and enhancing Canada's readiness to defend the democratic process from cyber threats and disinformation.

This includes spelling out how Canadians will be informed about serious meddling attempts during the campaign. In order to meet the threshold for the five-person group of senior bureaucrats to go public about these attempts, they must be considered "disruptive" and seen to have an impact on Canada's ability to hold a free and fair election.

I don't know how successful this will be, but at least our government is making a serious attempt.

I guess that means the Conservatives won't be allowed to say anything next election.

Serious change for the future starts with education, awareness and discussions today.

I had a group of Americans who own property on the island I live on get involved behind the scenes in our recent municipal elections. Among other things they floated a rumour that I was able to retire at an early age because I was a drug dealer in the past, a total lie but they got away with it and I lost by 9 votes. The authorities were not interested unless perhaps I could give them an airtight case that came gift wrapped with a bow on top. A direct breach of the Canada Elections Act and nobody gave a damn, including my federal MP.

Posted by QuidamOutrepontSome major change

Posted by bookofmoronsheard that nonsense from the local and Ottawa tantrum convoy at least a dozen times. If you're gonna "overthrow the government", you should at least know which country you're in.

Posted by SnowyOwlJust for Laughs. :D

Posted by SnowyOwlSoon the occupiers who feel privileged will realize that privileges are not rights and hopefully leave and go home.

Posted by SnowyOwlIt's easy to believe that you are in the majority when you live in an echo chamber.

Posted by actofdogNinety percent of Canadian truckers are vaccinated so the ''freedom convoy'' is useless and has no end game, plus it is illegal now they only had a two day permit.
