More Canadians than ever are doubting Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was legitimately elected as questions about Chinese electoral interference mount.
Leger released a poll on Monday which found that 20% of Canadians do not trust the results of elections in Canada.
While 69% said they do trust election results, reports of China meddling in Canada’s elections has led to a spike in concerns about the legitimacy of the current government.
Even more people don’t consider Canada’s elections “safe,” with 29% having doubts about them being compromised. 71% did in fact believe that they were safe.
One of the Liberal MPs implicated in the Chinese electoral interference scandal is Han Dong, who The Counter Signal recently contacted to question about China’s ongoing genocide of the Uyghur peoples.
Dong evaded our questions, effectively refusing to condemn China’s inhumane behaviour.
In 2019, Dong allegedly had a caravan of Chinese international students using fake addresses vote for his Liberal nomination under the threat of Beijing.
According to Justin Trudeau, anyone concerned about this election interference is simply a racist.
However, Liberal voters continue to be loyal to their dear leader Trudeau, with 92% saying they continue to have faith in the legitimacy of Canada’s elections.
When Conservative voters were asked the same thing, that number dropped to 55%.
“Our system of government is based on fair and open elections, and only seven out of 10 Canadians believe that’s the case right now,” said Leger executive vice-president Christian Bourque.
“It seems to me that Canadians want to get to the bottom of this.”
Last week, a different poll released by Abacus data showed that not just Conservative voters but Liberals also want Trudeau to permit a public inquiry to investigate the alleged Chinese Communist Party’s interference in Canada’s elections.
