Democracy Under Siege
Samara Canada recently published a study revealing that almost two-thirds of Canadians feel alienated by the politicians who they voted to represent them. Even economists agree; democracy is slipping. What can be done to get democracy back on track?
The ability to sway public opinion is becoming increasingly simplistic in the age of globalization and social media. Disinformation from online data is causing people to adopt a sense of hopelessness, which ultimately sways elections.

It’s only a matter of time until Canada’s experiences these kind of destabilization tactics.
