Disinformation: Challenges and Dangers to Democracy
In partnership with the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) Canada
Canada’s resilience to disinformation has been tested these past years with concerted campaigns from foreign adversaries and a thriving domestic disinformation ecosystem – not to mention the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. These dynamics were fully on display with the contentious February Freedom Convoy protests against vaccine mandates in Ottawa and other major Canadian cities. Speakers discussed the challenges and dangers to Canadian democracy posed by disinformation.
