Canada – Ottawa Setting Up New Team To Warn Canadians Of Potential Election Interference While Busy Interfering In Venezuelan Politics.

Ottawa setting up new team to warn Canadians of potential election interference

The Canadian government is setting up an internal team to sound the alarm if it sees evidence the October federal election is being undermined.

Democratic Institutions Minister Karina Gould made multiple announcements Wednesday regarding potential threats to Canada’s democratic process. She spoke alongside Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale and Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan in Ottawa.

To ward off the type of threats that tainted the 2016 U.S. presidential election and the Brexit vote, the government is setting up a new “critical election incident public protocol” group — five bureaucrats who will alert the public if they become aware of interference during the campaign period, also known as the writ period.

The panel will be made up of:

  • The Clerk of the Privy Council.
  • The federal national security and intelligence adviser.
  • The deputy minister of justice.
  • The deputy minister of public safety.
  • The deputy minister of Global Affairs Canada (GAC).

Gould said that, given Canada is a member of both the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the Five Eyes intelligence alliance, it would be “naive” to assume this country won’t be targeted in the lead-up to the election.

If the team determines there’s a substantial threat — either foreign and domestic — it would alert the prime minister, political party officials and Elections Canada that it would be holding a news conference to warn the public and advise people on what they should do to protect themselves. – CBC

Can you actually believe anything that this group is going to tell you?  There is no proof that there was any interference in the 2016 US elections no matter how hard the Democratic Party has tried.  Lots of accusations but is there any serious evidence? None.

Interference in the election is the reason Clinton lost.  Its the only explanation.  Could not be that she was a horrible candidate.  Nope. Its the Russians.

If the Liberals lose this fall, expect the Russians or Chinese interference to be the reason.

Does nobody in Ottawa see the irony here? A government worried about potential threats to Canada’s democratic process all the while it leads the effort to overthrow an duly elected President in Venezuela.  Canada is not only supporting a coup in that country, its leading the push for a coup in that country.  I believe that qualifies as interference.

Seriously, does Ottawa think that we are that stupid not to connect the two actions?   Yes. Yes, they do.

    Ottawa thinks that it’s citizens are so busy just trying to make a living and pay their debts to care about international affairs, the democratic process, public safety and electronic hacking, etc. etc. They are right. Most Canadians don’t even know where Venezuela is. Until the decisions made by Ottawa directly affect the everyday activities of the man on the street the majority will keep their head down, go to work and let the government take care of the rest.
