thePodcast: Kenny Chiu on the foreign interference report and the foreign agents registry bill

ADVERTISEMENT
For the week of May 12, 2024:

The Quebec judge heading Canada’s Foreign Interference Commission found the Chinese Communist Party did meddle in Canada’s 2019 and 2021 elections. On May 3, Marie-Josee Hogue called it a “stain” on Canada’s democracy, but she denied it affected the outcome of the elections. 

Three days later, the Trudeau Liberal minority government tabled a bill for a foreign agents lobbying registry, which Conservative Kenny Chiu originally proposed three years ago when he was the Steveston-Richmond East MP. That was before a pro-Beijing disinformation campaign about his private member’s bill led to his defeat. 

Kenny Chiu is Bob Mackin’s guest on this edition of thePodcast, offering his reaction to Hogue’s interim report and the Trudeau Liberal government’s about-face on foreign interference. 

Listen to the full interview on this edition.
