Some electoral critics argue Elections Canada’s new law, which requires online platforms to publish a digital registry of all political ads posted by registered parties during the federal election campaign, is obsolete, because the law only applies to paid advertisements and doesn’t cover “organic” user-generated content on social media.
They suggest parties will exploit the loop-hole by producing content that’s designed to go viral.
As part of Global News’ 2019 Federal Election coverage, Jeff Semple will explore disinformation and provide a forensic analysis of the distortion campaigns that proliferate largely on social media in order to keep audiences informed and armed with the truth throughout the campaign.
