Treason Accusations Shock Canada’s Parliament

( — A recent report from Canada’s National Security Committee has left the country shocked, as it featured accusations of treason against multiple members of Canada’s parliament.

The report comes from an all-party investigation but didn’t feature any names or identifying information regarding the Canadian lawmakers, prompting some lawmakers to call for the redacted findings to be revealed. The National Security Committee comes as Canada’s parliament has started an investigation into the country’s elections over the past few years, which many have claimed featured international interference.

The report features allegations against unknown Canadian politicians who allegedly operated alongside foreign countries to influence elections, campaigns, and tightly contested races between members of Canada’s leadership. According to the report’s findings, artificial intelligence, which could be used alongside foreign interference to manipulate national elections, is another potential issue for Canadian lawmakers. The report has prompted several notable Canadian lawmakers, including Canada’s top conservative official, Pierre Poilievre, to call for the government to reveal the lawmakers accused of treason.

Poilievre claims that Canadians deserve to know which members of the nation’s parliament might be acting in concert with foreign countries, some of which could be hostile. Despite Poilievre’s calls for transparency, Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau seems hesitant to demand more information. Trudeau hasn’t addressed the report’s findings directly, but the controversial prime minister has called for similar inquiries over the past few years.

Last September, Trudeau called for an investigation into Canada’s elections after evidence of foreign interference from China’s government came to light. China allegedly attempted to influence Canada by having voters vote against a popular Canadian conservative, which resulted in a liberal lawmaker winning an election. Canadian lawmakers also uncovered evidence of China spying on members of its Parliament, including Michael Chong, a member of Canada’s parliament who has an active role in the country’s foreign affairs.

While Trudeau hasn’t called for further transparency regarding the report about treason, some political experts believe the National Security Committee could pursue criminal charges against the lawmakers accused of treasonous behavior. According to the report, the unnamed politicians took bribes and worked alongside foreign officials to influence Canada’s political system. Despite Poilievre’s calls for more information about the report, Canada’s liberal lawmakers seem opposed to the idea of releasing details about the treasonous lawmakers, given the potential disruptive impact on Canada’s government.
