Defending Our Democracy: Foreign Interference

Canada is a G7 country. We are a founding member of NATO, but that would not be obvious by how the federal government has been acting in response to foreign operatives intimidating Canadians, interfering in our elections, and infiltrating our businesses.

Why is the government turning a blind eye to foreign interference?

From media and CSIS reports to regular Canadians who have long been reporting acts of harassment, threats of violence, and worse, it is clear that the government's inaction is making Canada a doormat to foreign operatives. Instead of acting, the government is deflecting and delaying.

Like our successful campaign for the federal government to honour its election promise to permanently eliminate interest on federal student loans, we will fight relentlessly to defend the integrity of Canada's democracy and keep Canadians safe:

  • Question Period on March 8, 2023 - The Prime Minister's personally selected "special rapporteur" must have full access to investigate political parties.
  • Adjournment Proceedings on February 16, 2023 - The government must stop pussyfooting around the issue of foreign interference.
  • Question Period on February 9, 2023 - At the start of 2023, the government stated that "protecting Canada's economy and infrastructure from foreign interference and from the rise of despotism" was one of its top priorities. What tangible action has the government taken?
  • Question Period on December 8, 2022 - There have been more protests in Iran and China against those regimes than action from the federal government. Why is the government failing to protect Canadians and stand up for Canada?
  • Adjournment Proceedings on December 6, 2022 - Foreign funds cannot be used for partisan purposes, including propelling like-minded puppet candidates seeking party nominations and running in elections. Why is the federal government content to put out permanent doormats for Iranian and Chinese governments?
  • Question Period on November 28, 2022 - Article 41(1) of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations states that all persons enjoying privileges and immunities in Canada have a duty to "respect the laws and regulations of the receiving State. They also have a duty not to interfere in the internal affairs of that State." Other nations expel pseudo-diplomats and agents. Does the government even understand the concept of persona non grata?
  • Question Period on November 25, 2022 - Pretend Chinese diplomats are operating pseudo police stations in Canada and intimidating Chinese Canadians. China is interfering in our electoral process, and Chinese spies are infiltrating Canadian businesses. There is also a wealth of evidence pointing to the Iranian regime doing the same to Iranian Canadians. Our country has many exemplary citizens who left China and Iran to live in a free Canada. Is the government going to continue its do-nothing approach with the undiplomatic actions of China and Iran, or will it act to finally stand up for our citizens?
