Author's Note:

As part of the ongoing effort to stop foreign interference in Canada, we pushed a petition to call upon the House of Commons to:

1. Reaffirm its commitment to openness, transparency, and accountability to Canadian citizens, especially as it relates to the recent uptick in potential foreign influence from the People’s Republic of China; and
2. Review and implement legislation to counter foreign interference and influence, looking in particular to experiences of other democratic countries, like Australia, which have effectively addressed these problems.
M-55 FOREIGN STATE-BACKED INTERFERENCE AND INTIMIDATION

MOTION TEXT

That the House, in light of the motion adopted by the House on November 18, 2020, respecting foreign state-backed interference and intimidation activities in Canada: (a) reiterate its concern about the presence of significant and sustained foreign interference activities in Canada and its call for a strong government response; (b) call upon federal government ministers to engage with their provincial, territorial, and municipal counterparts to collaboratively respond to the activities of foreign state-controlled or state-affiliated entities as they relate to institutions that fall outside federal jurisdiction; and (c) call upon the government to create new mechanisms of protection and support for Canadians who are targets of foreign state-backed interference and intimidation.
