Foreign Interference by the Chinese government into Canadian politics is probably the biggest news story of the year, and yet we know so little about it. What was the interference? Why did it occur? Did it work? Who was involved?
After months of national coverage, we still don’t really know.
Today we’re going to hear from a senior journalist, about his skepticism regarding Foreign Interference. We’re going to hear an editorial, an opinion – but a reported opinion and an informed one. Bruce Livesey knows about which he speaks – he knows about the specific newsrooms of which he speaks, because he used to work for both of them. He was an investigative reporter for both of the news organizations that have been reporting leaked CSIS documents – The Globe and Mail and Global News.
