Freeland says the committee found that some MPs “concerned” aiding foreign interference

OTTAWA – Canada’s deputy prime minister says the finding that some Canadian MPs “knowingly” helped foreign state actors is “concerning,” but she trusts law enforcement will do its job.

OTTAWA – Canada’s deputy prime minister says the finding that some Canadian MPs “knowingly” helped foreign state actors is “concerning,” but she trusts law enforcement will do its job.

Chrystia Freeland’s comments come after a committee of MPs and senators released a report on Monday saying intelligence shows foreign actors have worked to promote relations with parliamentarians.

The committee members were given high security clearance to review the information, and ultimately concluded that Canada’s response to foreign interference was inadequate.

The report flagged what it characterized as “particularly concerning” actions taken by “a few” unnamed politicians, adding that it could be illegal.

Freeland says the commission’s findings today are “concerning,” adding that “they should be.”

She defends the government’s approach to foreign interference and says the federal Liberals are taking the issue very seriously.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published June 4, 2024.
