Chinese Interference in Canada’s Elections: How deep does it go?

Posted on April 1, 2023

It’s cloak and dagger stuff, the latest dispute between Canada and China.  A CSIS report suggests that China was complicit in trying to influence the outcome of the last two federal elections using money and intimidation. 

The report points out, despite the attempt, the outcome of the elections would have been the same. The head scratcher is why the federal government is not holding a public inquiry into what happened.

I voted: NoSomeone is making a mountain out of a pimple on a flea.

The west have been doing this for a long time. Just read Deighton's books which are fictional but historically accurate.

Or think of Radio Free Europe and its likes.

July 2, 2023

I voted: YesCanadians will not tolerate rigged elections. I want to know the extent of foreign interference in the political process in Canada. I want laws put into place that will prevent this form ever happening again.

May 10, 2023

I voted: YesIf there is an indication that a foreign nation is interfering with our elections, I can't see any legitimate reason why there would NOT be a public inquiry into the matter. We saw Russia trying to interfere with U.S. elections; now we're told China is interfering with ours. The public needs to know whether these concerns have any factual basis and also what the government is (presumably) doing to block such efforts in the future.

I voted: Yes

We know that the Prime Minister was aware of this before our last elections. He decided to sit on it and didn't do his part and stop it. It is time he stop side stepping his response to this issue. Or step down and call a new election today!

I voted: Yes

Trudeau divided the country and ran us hopelessly into debt. He must go. 

April 5, 2023

I voted: NoThe fact that Pierre Poilievre is calling for this makes me suspicious as to whether we need this or not. I do not trust this man what so ever. Now Jagmeet Singh is one of two party leaders I do trust. So there may be some merit to this. But I need more information before demanding a full public inquiry.

I voted: Yes

April 5, 2023

I voted: YesThis is such a serious issue and a full independent inquiry should be carried out with all results published to the public.
