With a federal election less than a year away, Canada’s defence minister is warning voters they will be targeted by online cyber-attacks and fake news as Russia steps up its efforts to undermine western democracies.  “We have taken this into account very seriously in our defence policy,” Harjit Sajjan said in an interview with The Canadian Press.  “We need to further educate our citizens about the impact of fake news. No one wants to be duped by anybody.”  Comment: Least of all by you peddling a bogus story about Russian interference.
