CHARLIE ANGUS' LETTER TO SUPPORTERS - OCTOBER 9, 2018

"It worries me is that Canadian political parties are now in the digital arms race. If political manipulation happened in the United States and it happened in the U.K., we'd be very naive not to think it can happen in Canada." - Charlie Angus


Friends,

I want to share this interview I did with The Current's Anna Maria Tremonti about the disturbing rise of "data mercenaries" and their ability to potentially undermine elections.

As Vice-chair of the Ethics Committee, I pushed for a full investigation into the Cambridge Analytica/Facebook scandal and its connections to Brexit and the Trump election. What we uncovered is a disturbing web of international players with disturbing links to Steve Bannon, Israeli mercenaries and companies for hire who are using cutting-edge data technology to monkey wrench elections around the globe.

There is a distinct Canadian connection and Canadians would be very naive to think these tactics will not be used in Canadian elections.

Friends, I am committed to using my position as a parliamentarian to shine a light on these corporate actors who are undermining the rights of citizens.


Thank you, Charlie
