A former editor of Canada’s largest Chinese-language newspaper urged parliamentarians to use legislation to combat Chinese Communist Party (CCP) propaganda. Victor Ho, who was the editor of Sing Tao Daily, made the comments while appearing before the House of Commons Special Committee on Canada-China Relations. “They use identity politics. Our government could take a look at how foreign agents or diplomats have such interference,” said Ho. “The ultimate goal is to brainwash or at least influence our Chinese-Canadian audiences into accepting the policies of the Communist Party of China. They exploit free airwaves of our broadcasters to convey political propaganda,” said Ho. Ho pointed to a July 23 statement provided by China’s Consul General Tong Xiaoling on a Vancouver radio station as an example.
