A poll released by Abacus data shows that not just Conservative voters but Liberals also want Prime Minister Trudeau to permit a public inquiry to investigate the alleged Chinese Communist Party’s interference in Canada’s elections. 

71% of Liberal voters want public inquiry into election interference

According to a poll released on Friday by Abacus data that surveyed 2,600 Canadians, 71% of Liberal Party voters support a public inquiry – something Trudeau has refused to do.

Similarly, 72% of Conservative Party voters surveyed support a public inquiry.

Earlier this week, Trudeau snubbed a vote that passed to have a public inquiry, and instead announced that a Liberal-controlled committee would investigate the alleged foreign interference.

As recently reported, Canada’s last three elections have been put into question after Canadian Security Intelligence Service members leaked information to the media that alleged the Chinese Communist Party has been actively working to have Liberals hold office while conducting disinformation campaigns against conservative candidates.

In early 2022, ten months before Trudeau said he’d never been briefed about the CCP funding Canadian political candidates, a “special report” prepared by the Privy Council Office (PCO) for Trudeau suggested otherwise.

“A large clandestine transfer of funds earmarked for the federal election from the [People’s Republic of China] Consulate in Toronto was transferred to an elected provincial government official via a staff member of a 2019 federal candidate,” the final report read. 

The PCO’s 2019 report also said that China’s “extensive network of quasi-official and local community and interest groups allowed it to obfuscate communication and the flow of funds between Canadian targets and Chinese officials.”

The Abacus data also shows that 13% of Canadians polled believe that the CCP influenced the 2021 Canadian election enough to change the outcome, and 12% think it’s possible. 

In other words, one in four Canadians thinks that it’s at least possible the alleged CCP 2021 election interference changed the outcome.
