Absolutely, as a government we would take this very seriously. Election safety and security is one of the top priorities of the government and certainly of the Privy Council Office. We have a leadership role in a government-wide approach and in advice to the Prime Minister and cabinet on items related to national security.
On this particular item, there is a multifaceted approach that is really based around citizen preparedness, improving organizational readiness within government, combatting foreign interference and expecting social media platforms to act. At a very high level, this involves things like the cyber safe campaign that's being carried out by the government right now, and updates to cyber-threats to the Canadian democracy.
CSE recently released a report, which I'd be happy to talk to you about in more detail if you'd like. There's also an incident protocol that has been put in place to ensure that, if there is a threat to the security of the election, there is a process in place to inform the parties and the public.
I think one of the themes that you'll hear again and again from the government is the importance of understanding where information comes from, so there's also work being done with social media platforms to ensure that they understand they have a role to play in making sure that information is accurate.
I'll close by saying that citizens have a role as well. If you do think something is untrue, I think that flagging that is certainly worthwhile. You should question where information comes from and verify that the sources that you're using are authentic. That's something that certainly, as a government, we'll try to educate the electorate on.
