Here is what foreign interference in elections looks like

This story shows that in Canada it is not Russian interference in our electoral process that we have to fear.

Elections Canada sought information including the contact information for the CEO of a company in Israel that investigators suspect is connected to the website “Attorney Cocktail,” which published the false information linked in the advertisement.

The ad was published before new laws brought in under Bill C-76 take effect, Elections Canada previously told The Tyee. However, the ad may have violated three existing clauses of the Election Act.

Canada’s Elections Act requires those that place elections ads to identify themselves in the ad and register as third-party advertisers if they spend over $500. The act further prohibits foreign entities from influencing voters during election periods.

The commissioner required Taboola — which has offices in Toronto and Tel Aviv in addition to New York — to provide information on whether the three requirements were violated.

Wow. Thanks for this, krop.

So, 1+1=1?

How does an additional source of electoral interference negate existing sources such as Russia and China? Neomarxist non-sequiturs do not make western democratic electoral processes safer.

'Western democratic electoral processes' are not safe for a whole host of reasons having nothing to do  with Russia or China. As for Israel, they have the entire Canadian parliament at their disposal. Including Jagmeet Singh.

"I and fellow solidarity activists were just condemned in Parliament by the usual pro-Israel suspects for having disrupted a speech by apartheid apologist Irwin Cotler. This is in response..."

"Pro-Apartheid CIJA lobbyists met 165 times from January to November 2018. That's an average of 2 contacts per day that Parliament sat. This doesn't include CIJA lobbying of provinces or municipalities."

As with America, the 'colluding' and 'meddling' elephant in the room, isn't China or Russia. It's Israel. And in plain sight too. It works. Israel gets to continue to extirpate PalestIndians and steal their lands and resources with the full consent/collaboration of Canadian politicians. And since they represent and are accountable to YOU Canucklhead. YOU'RE also responsible. Jagmeet Singh should beware. Even though he personally helped to crush a nominal and moderate BDS resolution during the last NDP Party convention, Israel's hasbara specialists are apparently still gunning for him anyway.

I found this interesting. Last part of the introduction link

A Montreal-based lawyer representing Taboola responded to investigators’ initial inquiries stating that it would not reveal the client that placed the false ad unless “ordered to do so by a court of competent jurisdiction.” Elections Canada then obtained the court order.

Apparently Canucklheads are ok with that.
