As Canadians head to the polls on October 21 for the federal election, is fake news and social media impacting our elections?
Join Darrell Bricker, CIGI Senior Fellow and CEO of Ipsos Public Affair who will share what we need to know this election season and explain social media's role in propagating fake news. The discussion will pull findings from this year's CIGI-Ipsos Global Survey on Internet Security and Trust that found the majority of users surveyed feel that the political discourse in their country has been negatively affected as a result of the pervasiveness of fake news online. Given the impact of trust, or lack thereof, on users’ behavior both online and offline – there are many ways this information can assist in making important decisions about policy and resource managements.
