Trudeau Addresses Alleged Chinese Election Interference

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau testified before a commission probing alleged foreign interference in Canadian elections, asserting that while China attempted to meddle in the last two elections, the results remained unaffected, and there was no discernible preference for any specific party. Trudeau emphasized the integrity of the electoral process, stating that despite foreign attempts to intervene, the elections were ultimately determined by the Canadian electorate. Addressing concerns raised by opposition figures regarding Chinese interference, Trudeau highlighted the absence of substantive evidence suggesting significant impact on the electoral outcomes.

The commission’s proceedings follow heightened scrutiny over media reports suggesting China’s involvement in Canadian elections, prompting Trudeau to establish the inquiry. While acknowledging attempts at interference, Trudeau maintained that Canada’s electoral integrity remained intact, reaffirming the autonomy of Canadian voters in deciding election outcomes.
