Alliance Canada Hong Kong (ACHK) released a new report titled, “Murky Waters: Beijing’s Influence in Canadian Democratic and Electoral Processes”.
The report provides in-depth analysis into specific tactics used by foreign principals to influence and interfere in Canadian electoral and democratic processes, and includes a small survey of politicians and campaign staffers.
Foreign interference in political institutions is present at all levels of public office and across the political spectrum. Diaspora and dissident communities have long raised concerns about these threats. However, those outside of the diaspora and dissident communities lack the insights to identify foreign influence in its cultural context and understand how these activities are affecting Canada.
