RCMP/Facebook: Defend Canadian Democracy!

To Commissioner Brenda Lucki and Mark Zuckerberg:

We call on the RCMP to immediately launch an investigation of who may have paid a foreign citizen, Mathew Ricchiazzi, to promote fake news smearing Justin Trudeau during the election campaign. These weaponized deceptions were seen up to 20 million times! We call on Facebook to do the right thing and at the very least circulate independent third party fact checks to everyone reached by this attack on our democracy.

Multiple newspapers including the Toronto Star have exposed a massive illegal scheme to smear Justin Trudeau in this election.

An American fraudster has likely been paid by an unknown source to run fake news stories attacking Trudeau for corruption -- these stories have reached an estimated 20 million views and counting!! Canada only has around 26 million voters!

This is happening across the world -- last minute massive social media attacks from other countries that swing elections on behalf of hidden interests. Twitter has banned the fraudster but Facebook refuses to even circulate corrections to the fake news!!

We urgently need to let our fellow Canadians know about this before they vote, and demand an immediate investigation into who paid the fraudster. Particularly if that person was connected to any of our political parties, Canadians have a right to know.
