Elections Canada wants to buy social media ‘listening’ tool to track threats ahead of 2019 election
Twitter, Reddit, Facebook.
All three have been accused over the last two years of letting themselves be used by Russian attempts to influence the 2016 American election and as a new procurement posting suggests, they are just a few of the social media sites Elections Canada wants to keep an even closer eye on as it tracks risks and trends ahead of the 2019 Canadian election.

John Ivison: Federal Liberals stumbled into a $20B windfall — then they spent it all
