Exposing false information which misleads Chinese voters – Chinese

WEB – Chinese Readers (Weekly) – Vancouver, 13/10/2019 – NEWS, Chinese

Jia Xi Wang (westca.com) reported that during the federal election, in addition to various parties exposing some scandals involving the opponents, there is also often misleading information in campaign debates or ads. The Vancouver Sun published an article that exposed the Conservative Party for running Chinese ads on Facebook, and it is suspected of using fake news to mislead Chinese voters. The ad read: “(Liberal Leader Justin) Trudeau has already legalized marijuana, he now plans to legalize hard drugs! If you want to get the latest in Chinese, please press Like on our Facebook page.” However, the Liberal Party did not bring up the legalization of drugs, it only brought up decriminalization, and even included references to the Portuguese model. The Conservatives are denying a deliberate attempt to confuse voters by using “decriminalization” and “legalization” interchangeably.

Discussion on voter participation – Spanish

RADIO – CHIN 91.9 FM Spanish (Daily) – Toronto, 15/10/2019 – COMMENTARY, Spanish

Silvia Mendez, Eric Sifuentes – Radio host Eric Sifuentes said that many people were surprised that the advance voting polls were open on Thanksgiving Monday, but a lot of people did vote. It was a historic day in terms of voter participation, with a 25% higher voter turnout than in 2015. Sifuentes said it’s a close election and no one knows what’s going to happen on October 21.

Radio host Silvia Mendez said that people are saying it’s time to assemble together because more is more. She noted that red doesn’t go so badly with orange after all on the colour wheel. Sifuentes said that orange has made a romantic overture to red in order to form a coalition and prevent blue from winning. Trudeau and Singh tried to avoid commenting further on this on Monday. Sifuentes added that we will see if journalists keep asking about this on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the Conservatives and Liberals are neck and neck in the polls. Silvia Mendez called upon Latinos to get out in a large bloc and vote. Sifuentes said that unfortunately the Latino community doesn’t vote and that voting doesn’t matter enough to Latinos. The Latino community doesn’t have the same level of voter participation as other communities. According to Sifuentes, this is partially why some things are missing for the Latino community, such as representation in Parliament.

Silvia Mendez said that Latinos who live in Canada, but who are not citizens and therefore cannot vote, can participate in other ways like supporting candidates by door knocking and discussing issues within the community. Sifuentes said that for the community who gets up at 4am to work long hours to get ahead and be strong, people need to take this seriously and participate. Sifuentes hears a deafening silence from many people in his community, while other people say it doesn’t interest them. However, Silvia Mendez has faith in the Latino vote and that they are going to make a difference.

The Canadian-Muslim Vote launches “Muslim Vote Weekend” – Muslim

WEB – Muslim Link (Monthly) – Ottawa, 09/10/2019 – NEWS, English

Canadian Muslim Vote – The Canadian-Muslim Vote (TCMV) is launching its “Muslim Vote Weekend” campaign on Friday, October 11, 2019, with Get Out the Vote sermons in over 100 mosques across six provinces and territories. The campaign will mobilize Muslim voters to the Advance Polls over the Thanksgiving Weekend. Over 130 “Campaign-in-a-Box” all-in-one, do-it-yourself kits have been sent to volunteers at mosques from Whitehorse to Halifax to educate Muslim voters and bring them to the polls. TCMV Executive Director Ali Manek said, “The Muslim Vote Weekend is one of the ways The Canadian-Muslim Vote is breaking down barriers to voting by getting our community to the polls early and making sure they are registered and educated on how and where to vote. Our campaign volunteers have had a million touch-points with community members this election with the message that we speak the loudest when we vote. Our community survey shows we can expect a higher Muslim turnout this election than the general average.”

Ethnic Media Election Coverage 7-12 October

This week about 160 election-related articles were analysed.

Major issues covered:

Immigration: Immigration coverage was dominated by CPC leader Scheer’s proposals to address asylum seekers crossing at Roxham Road and the Safe Third Country Agreement with the USA. There were a number of articles contrasting party positions, particularly with respect to immigration levels and refugees. The campaign announcement by the Liberals of a “Municipal Nominee Program” was covered. South Asian media had a number of reports on immigration fraud with respect to international students who came as students but whose real purpose was to work and eventually become permanent residents:

“Andrew Scheer was at the Quebec border today, where he met with refugees putting in claims to enter Canada. Now Trudeau needs to give a substantial statement about what he will do about controlling immigration, or at least refugees who put in bogus claims to enter the country. This will give reassurance to Canada’s voters that something will be done about the situation. Students in India are also watching these elections very closely, because if the Liberals win again, they will have a chance at getting in. If the Conservatives win, the situation will be a lot more difficult.” (Punjabi, CMJR 1320 Apna Punjab)


An article highlighted that there were 15 Chinese Canadian candidates running in British Columbia, the majority being either CPC or PPC.

CPC leader Sheer’s rally for Mississauga-area candidates was covered.

  • Beaches-East York: Mae J. Nam, NDP candidate, was interviewed in Korean media.
  • Brampton Centre: Baljit Bawa, PPC candidate, continued to receive coverage:

“He said that Brampton has been neglected by all governments.  He said that neither the previous Conservative government nor the current Liberal government that has five MPs from Brampton have done anything for the City.” (Punjabi, Chin FM 91.9 Ramz Punjabi)

  • Brampton East: Saranjit Singh, NDP candidate’s promises that the NDP would provide funding for a hospital and university was covered. Commentary noted the race was particularly tight given that Liberal incumbent Raj Grewal is not running as he is addressing his gambling addiction.
  • Brampton North: Arpan Khanna, CPC candidate, received coverage for his critique of limited transit funding (23 buses) compared to other regions.
  • Brampton South: Sonia Sidhu, Liberal incumbent, received coverage for her listing of Liberal achievements.
  • Brampton West: The arguments in favour of a new Brampton hospital by Navjit Kaur, NDP candidate, were covered:

“There is only one hospital in Brampton for 600,000 people. If you compare Mississauga and Brampton, Mississauga that has less population than Brampton has three hospitals.”(Punjabi, Chin FM 91.9 Ramz Punjabi)

Roger Sampson, PPC candidate, was interviewed on immigration:

“… we need to see how we can better integrate immigrants and refugees into the Canadian society. The reduction in immigration will help review and reform our immigration policy. Sampson said that the PPC wants to limit the number of immigrants to 100,000 – 150,000 for now to integrate them better and move forward.” (Punjabi, WTOR 770 AM Radio South Asian Pulse Prime Time)

Harinderpal Hundal, Communist Party candidate, was interviewed.

  • Burnaby North-Seymour: The removal of Heather Leong as a Conservative candidate after the nomination deadline was covered, noting that she nevertheless would remain on the ballot as Conservative given that the ballots have been printed.
  • Calgary Shepard: The complaint by Conservative candidate Tomasz Kmiec against his Liberal rival Del Arnold spreading false information that Kmiec lived in Quebec and not in the riding was covered:

“Political parties should avoid using dirty tactics like attacking someone’s reputation or spreading false information about candidates.” (Polish, Wiadomosci)

  • Mississauga Malton: It was noted that the Conservatives had nominated a weak candidate, Tom Varughese, against Liberal incumbent and minister Navdeep Bains:

“… this is worse than a friendly match — a term that is used when a political party fields a weaker candidate with the purpose of not giving a respected leader of the opposing party a strong fight.” (Punjabi, Canadian Punjabi Post)

  • Nunavut: PM Trudeau’s visit to Nunavut to support candidate Megan Pizzo-Lyall was covered.
  • Richmond Centre: An all candidates meeting was covered.
  • Scarborough Centre: Salma Zahid, Liberal incumbent for Scarborough Centre, was interviewed.

“Pakistan has been included on the Student Direct Stream List. The SDS will make it much easier for Pakistani students to come to Canada.” (Urdu, Saaz-O-Awaz)

  • Vimy: There was more coverage of Liberal MP Eva Nassif allegations of being forced out of the nomination race (Annie Koutrakis is the Liberal candidate).
  • West Vancouver-Sunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country: The riding and candidates were profiled with the following prediction:

“The riding was established in 1996, populated by mostly Caucasian residents. With the immigration strategy becoming more flexible in the 1990s, an influx of Chinese and Iranian immigrants began to settle in the area as well. Conservative candidate Gabrielle Loren is at an advantage in this riding, because the upper class are more in favour of Conservative policies. If Loren focuses on promoting an economic focus in her campaign, she may be able to gain support from right-wing voters.” (Chinese, Van People)

Campaign: There continued to be reporting on voting procedures and initiatives to increase participation, where the leaders were concentrating their activities, the general contrast between the Liberals and Conservatives and a lament that substantive issues were not being addressed. The contrast between Alberta Premier Kenney’s active support and Ontario Premier Doug Ford being forced to sit out the campaign was noted:

“It has become a political discussion that Tory Leader Scheer is expecting that Jason Kenney will succeed in bringing immigrant voters to the Tories which he (Scheer) himself couldn’t do in a region dominated by immigrant voters. He cannot connect with Ontarians broadly. Jason Kenney’s participation in the federal Conservative campaign is an interesting twist, but what is surprising is the party’s stopping a premier like Doug Ford from contacting voters. By calling Kenney from the other end of the country for his campaign, Andrew Scheer is giving the impression to the voters that his camp badly needs an impressive leader. The author of the editorial says that victory or defeat in any war depends on which party instills a sense of fear, and the same principle applies to the elections. The Tories may have to pay a big price for ignoring this fact.” (Punjabi, Canadian Punjabi Post)

Leaders’ debate: Coverage of the debate included some interesting commentary:

“The paper talks specifically about Bill 21. It says Canadians were expecting their leaders to strongly oppose that Quebec bill. The Sikh community was expecting Jagmeet Singh in particular to strongly oppose it, but that did not happen. The minority communities are unhappy to see that. Only Trudeau said he opposes this bill and if Liberals come to power again, he would intervene in this matter. This clear stand of Trudeau brings him closer to the minorities. That was reflected in an improvement in the Liberal standing after the debate.” (Punjabi, Hamdard Daily)

“All these debates could achieve one thing — making Trudeau the prime minister of Canada once again — not due to Trudeau’s ability, but due to the others’ inability.” (Tamil, Yarl Inayam)

“During the debate, Maxime Bernier said that only 6% of Canadians want to increase immigration. The rest of Canadians are either in favour of reducing immigration or having it remain at the current levels. François Legault of the Coalition Avenir Québec promised to reduce immigration levels in his immigration campaign and he was elected to form the government. It clearly indicates that a discussion should be initiated on the number of immigrants. Do we need 100,000 immigrants or 400,000 immigrants each year? Co-host Shaili Saini agreed with Jaswal and said that she agrees with Bernier’s emphasis on the integration of immigrants to contribute better to the Canadian economy. Jaswal called for an independent portfolio for integration.” (Punjabi, WTOR 770 AM Radio South Asian Pulse Prime Time)

Citizenship: The campaign promise by the Liberals to eliminate citizenship fees continued to receive coverage. Andrew Scheer’s dual Canadian-American citizenship drew some commentary:

“Silvia Mendez cited Andrew Scheer saying that he didn’t say anything because no one asked him, and radio host Fabian Merlo burst out laughing. Fabian Merlo said it’s like the scene in ‘Lord of the Rings’ where the character Gollum is asked why he didn’t answer, and Gollum replies, ‘Because Master never asked me’. … Silvia Mendez said that Scheer having dual citizenship has nothing to do with being prime minister, but the problem is that Scheer previously criticized the governor general for having dual citizenship. He had asked how she can be Canada’s governor general if she has dual citizenship. Fabian Merlo said the issue is that Scheer wasn’t honest, not the fact that he has dual citizenship. Silvia Mendez wonders who Scheer voted for in the last US election. The question about how Scheer’s interests and policies line up is causing a stir.” (Spanish, CHIN 91.9 FM Spanish)

Poll: The latest Angus Reid poll was covered with the focus being on which immigration levels and which leaders the public had more confidence to manage immigration:

“More Canadians trust Scheer than Trudeau to manage immigration.” (Farsi, Daily7, Mandarin, Talent Vision Canada News)

“Immigration: Over half of Canadians agree with Trudeau.” (Portuguese, Correio da Manha)

“Immigration and migration: Canadians disagree with Trudeau.” (Russian, Russian Express)

“More Canadians trust Scheer on immigration.” (Greek, CKDG FM 105.1 Greek)

Foreign interference: Ongoing coverage of the Rapid Response Team’s finding with respect to the Alberta election continued. Commentary on possible Chinese and Indian interference included:

“Twitter identified some 200,000 accounts, many of which were deliberately and specifically attempting to sow political discord in Hong Kong, including undermining the legitimacy and political positions of the protest movement on the ground. According to Twitter’s research, most of the accounts and their subversive activity has been state-backed. Canadian pro-democracy supporters have been targeted with threats published on the Beijing-controlled WeChat platform, and it’s been alleged that many of the Hong Kong counter-protests in Canadian cities have been organized by Chinese consulates.” (Chinese, Epoch Times)

“A caller said that Akhand Paths (continuous recitation of sacred religious texts in Sikhism) are being organized in Punjab, India for the victory of Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party in federal elections. Some people even say that anyone who votes for the NDP or any other party will be considered traitors. Host Sandip Bhatti said that he also heard about Akhand Paths to vote for and support Trudeau. At the time of the election in India, the Indian community in Canada calls people in India to vote for a specific party or candidates of our choice. We even visit India to help them in their elections. When we interfere to influence voters in India, the people in India can also try to interfere in Canadian elections.” (Punjabi, CHTO AM 1690 Hulchul Radio)

Multiculturalism: Stories included the limited impact of Liberal leader Trudeau’s blackface and the harassment of an older woman at a protest against PPC leader Bernier and the subsequent closure of Soufi’s given the attack on their son (one of the demonstrators) and social media threats.

China: Coverage noted that relations with China, like other foreign policy issues, has not been that prominent an issue, more commentary by former Ontario minister Chan arguing that the West has always distrusted China and CPC leader Scheer expressing concerns regarding the situation in Hong Kong.

Climate Change: A number of stories contrasted party positions.

Other: The lead-up to a potential strike by Ontario public school support workers along with the potential political impact was covered.

Indians trying to influence Canadian voters – Punjabi

RADIO – CHTO AM 1690 Hulchul Radio (Daily) – Toronto, 09/10/2019 – PHONE IN, Punjabi

A caller said that Akhand Paths (continuous recitation of sacred religious texts in Sikhism) are being organized in Punjab, India for the victory of Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party in federal elections. Some people even say that anyone who votes for the NDP or any other party will be considered traitors. Host Sandip Bhatti said that he also heard about Akhand Paths urging voting for and supporting Trudeau. At the time of the election in India, the Indian community in Canada called on people in India to vote for a specific party or candidates of our choice. We even visit India to help them in their elections. When we interfere to influence voters in India, the people in India can also try to interfere in Canadian elections.

Who was the winner of the English language debate? – Tamil

WEB – Yarl Inayam (Daily) – London (Ontario), 09/10/2019 – ARTICLE, Tamil

Sivathasan – The English language debate, which lasted for two hours, was not as interesting or fiery as expected. The debate could be compared to a competition that involved two rabbits and four tortoises. While the two rabbits were fighting among themselves, Jagmeet Singh (a tortoise) won easily. The SNC-Lavalin weapon has lost its sharpness after frequent use. The counter weapon of “employment for Canadians,” which Trudeau used against the SNC-Lavalin weapon, has also lost its sharpness. The only notable point in the debate was when Sheer said, “He can’t even remember how many times he put blackface on… Mr. Trudeau, you are a phony, you are a fraud. You don’t deserve to lead this country.” All these debates could achieve one thing – making Trudeau the prime minister of Canada once again – not due to Trudeau’s ability, but due to the others’ inability.


No Chinese components mentioned in the Canadian election – Chinese

WEB – Van People (Daily) – Vancouver, 07/10/2019 – ARTICLE, Chinese


For a democratic country, the federal election is to determine what the greater community wants for the future. Various political parties will build their platforms around what the majority of Canadians favour. If we look into the platforms of each political party, we can tell what are some of the topics that voters care about. The American election influences the Canadian elections in some ways, especially on the topic of the threat of China. Both the Republicans and the Democrats see China as a threat to their country. With Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou’s arrest being such a huge controversy in Canada, it was surprising to see that nothing related to this topic was mentioned by Canadian political leaders during the campaign trail. Canadian parties and voters mostly care about issues that impact Canada internally, such as the economy, the environment, health care, child welfare, gun regulation, housing, immigration, and the budget deficit. There was no single party that discussed how to resolve the challenges between Canada and China’s relationship. There was also no single news outlet that asked candidates to discuss this topic either. To the Chinese Canadians, this is very unbelievable. They care a lot about Meng’s case and the relationship between Canada and China. But the parties decided not to speak about it entirely. This is viewed as normal if we understood how the majority of Canadians feel about the current economy and the community. First of all, Canadians do not care about China, but they also do not care about the rest of the world. The parties are not discussing China because this is not a topic that voters care about.

Ahmed Hussen, purveyor of untruths, must resign – Italian

PRINT – Corriere Canadese (Daily5) – Toronto, 07/10/2019 – ARTICLE, Italian

Joe Volpe – The Law Society Tribunal has rejected claims by an unknown plaintiff against immigration lawyer Richard Boraks and the Undocumented Workers Committee with regard to a pilot project to help construction workers – many of them Brazilian, Italian, Portuguese, Polish or Hispanic – unable to obtain permanent resident status in Canada. In 2016, former immigration minister John McCallum proposed a pilot project to address the situation of the employers and employees in question. He established a caucus committee to assist in the process. MPs Julie Dzerowicz and Peter Fonseca were initially active in promoting the project. The new immigration minister, Ahmed Hussen, made all the right confirmational statements until the end of 2017. However, in 2018 he began denying the program ever existed, and the MPs followed suit. The Immigration Department began removal proceedings against applicants. As the Law Society Tribunal’s decision shows, the statements and actions promoted by Hussen and his colleagues were not supported by facts. This, Joe Volpe says, is unacceptable and unjustifiable in our democratic process. It is now up to the voters – especially Portuguese and Italians – to mete out justice for the psychological and economic damage done to the deported families and their employers. A cartoon shows headshots of Hussen, Dzerowicz and Fonseca forming a triangle with the words “Deceit, disinformation and dissimulation” in it and “Go away!” beneath it.

The inhumanity of cutting Canadian aid to countries in need – Haitian

WEB – Haiti Sun (Daily7) – Sydney, 06/10/2019 – ARTICLE, 1 page web, 2nd, English

It is a bad idea to cut off your nose to spite your face. Similarly, it would be a catastrophic move for Canada’s next prime minister to scrap international development assistance. Yet two party leaders, Maxime Bernier and Andrew Scheer, propose to do exactly that. Scheer wants a 25 per cent reduction in Canada’s spending on development assistance, while Bernier calls for an almost complete elimination of it. Such promises are reckless and deeply misguided. Cutting development assistance in the ways that Scheer and Bernier suggest reveals an alarming misunderstanding of what aid is. Development assistance has its problems. Nevertheless, it is crucial for reducing extreme poverty. And it fosters important international relations that can benefit all Canadians. Official development assistance, or international aid, is one of Canada’s most important tools in putting its values into practice on a global scale. But surprisingly, Canada is quite stingy when it comes to giving. According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, Canadian international aid in 2018 represented 0.28 per cent of our gross national income (GNI). Does cutting support for the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people reflect the values of Canadians, including those who are likely to vote for Scheer? We hope not. But how are the other parties doing when it comes to foreign aid?

Douglas Todd: How the election is playing out in local Chinese-language media

Opinion: More than 300,000 people in Hong Kong hold Canadian passports — and October 21 marks the first Canadian election in which they can cast a ballot.

The conflict between Hong Kong and China. The pros and cons of immigration and refugees. Beliefs on abortion and same-sex issues. The tension between paying taxes and benefiting from social services.

Specialists who monitor Canada’s roughly 290 Chinese-language newspapers, websites, radio stations and TV channels say the political coverage not only echoes the mainstream media, it also reveals the distinct concerns of people with origins in East Asia.

Immigration and refugee issues garner more attention in the Chinese-language media than they do among the general Canadian public, say professional observers.

And even though Chinese-Canadians with roots in Hong Kong, Taiwan and China show a complex range of political opinions, Andrew Griffith, a former senior director in Ottawa’s immigration department, has concluded: “There is more of a conservative trend among Chinese-Canadians than, for example, South Asians.”

Like other Canadians, the 1.3 million people of Chinese origin switch party allegiances according to broader political patterns, said Griffith, who works with Diversityvotes.ca, a website highlighting political coverage in the country’s ethnic media. But their votes could make a crucial difference in dozens of urban swing ridings with large immigrant and visible-minority populations.

Roughly three out of four Chinese-Canadians live in either Greater Toronto, where they make up 11 per cent of voters, or Metro Vancouver, where they account for 20 per cent of voters. In the Vancouver suburb of Richmond, which has two federal ridings, 54 per cent of the population is ethnic Chinese.

Andres Malchaski, president of MIREMS International, which monitors the ethnic-language media and helped create Diversityvotes.ca, says that, while a large portion of Canadians tell pollsters the environment is their top election issue, that issue is far outweighed in the Chinese-language media by debates over immigration and refugees.

Chinese-Canadian media outlets, including their discussion forums, contain frequent criticism of Liberal leader Justin Trudeau for bringing in more than 60,000 Syrian refugees since 2015, said Machalski, who has analyzed Canada’s ethnic media for three decades.

Media outlets that target Canadians from China are often wary of refugees from Muslim countries, Machalski said, an attitude that reflects the way China’s authoritarian leaders have restricted the religious freedom of millions of Uighur Muslims.

“The feelings expressed by some of the calls and comments on phone-in shows and in newspaper columns (in Canada) certainly support the idea there will be segments of Chinese voters that might even go so far as to support the People’s Party of Canada,” which is calling for reducing immigration and refugee levels, Machalski said.

Still, Machalski emphasized that the views expressed in the Chinese-language outlets in Canada offer a “kaleidoscope” of perspectives, which often reflect whether their respective audiences are connected to Hong Kong, Taiwan, Hanoi or Beijing.

That is especially so in regards to the recent anti-Beijing protests in the financial centre of Hong Kong.

More than 300,000 people living in Hong Kong hold Canadian passports — and Oct. 21 marks the first Canadian election in which they can cast a ballot, says a Diversityvotes.ca article by Blythe Irwin.

The Chinese media is picking up on everything Canadian politicians are saying about the special administrative region of China. Ethnic-Chinese media commentators, she says, are both approving and sceptical of the way Trudeau says he is “extremely concerned” about Hong Kong, while Conservative leader Andrew Scheer went further by declaring in a tweet: “We are all Hong Kongers.”

Fenella Sung, a former Chinese-language radio show host, said that Chinese-media perspectives about the conflict largely reflect whether the Canadian-based outlets are aimed at audiences rooted in Hong Kong or China.

It’s not surprising that readers of media directed at the large mainland-Chinese population in Canada “would think the Hong Kong issue is China’s internal affair and that it would not be appropriate for Canadian politicians to comment,” said Sung, who is a member of Canadian Friends of Hong Kong.

Long-time immigrants from Hong Kong, Taiwan and other parts of East Asia, Sung said, tend to have political concerns that are in line with Canadians at large, such as jobs, housing and protecting the environment.

“But newer and younger immigrants, mostly from mainland China, are very consistent and focussed on economic growth, expansion of trade, less government bureaucracy, and lower taxation. They don’t like social spending.”

Prior to the B.C. election in 2016, some opinion polls suggested that, even while the province’s more than 500,000 ethnic Chinese voters held diverse views, they generally leaned to the centre-right B.C. Liberals, and had almost no interest in the Greens.

In an article on politics and Canada’s ethnic media published Wednesday in Policy Options magazine, Griffith said Liberal and Conservative party approaches to same-sex marriage and abortion have been widely commented upon, suggesting so-called “family values” are important to many recent immigrants and people of colour.

“While the Liberals and Conservatives get widespread coverage of their electoral promises and commitments, the NDP and Green Party are under-covered,” Griffith added, after reviewing 1,200 recent articles in the ethnic media.

“In contrast, the People’s Party of Canada, given its focus on restricting immigration and its initial exclusion from the leaders’ debate, received more than twice as much substantive coverage as the NDP and Greens combined.”

Chinese-language and other ethnic media outlets in Canada don’t necessarily reinforce cultural silos, Griffith says. But it’s clear they also offer a special window into political discussions of particular concern to certain ethnic groups.
