Election cybersecurity: a comprehensive look at the threats and solutions ahead of 2019

October 4, 2018

Editor: Anja Karadeglija Copy editing: Bryson Masse

Canada’s 43rd federal election will take place in 2019, in what is in many ways a completely changed landscape for democratic elections since the Liberal Party won a majority in October 2015. In fact, an annual report by the Commissioner of Canada Elections published in May this year noted that at the time of the 2015 election,“emerging technologies had posed relatively little concern to the enforcement of Canada’s election laws.”

It will be the first Canadian federal election to take place following major news stories about hacking, foreign interference and social media manipulation of the United States and other western countries’ democratic processes. Various government departments and agencies, as well as private sector players like social media platforms, are taking steps to prepare for a number of threats, from those posed by misuse of social media to spread fake news and misinformation, to hacking attempts targeting internal communications, web- sites and data storage systems of political parties and elections agencies.

Updated January 29, 2018

Edited by Katie Schultz and Christina Leadlay

The updated edition of The Federal Response to the Opioid Crisis ebook is now available.

Updates include:
- Additional committee work dealing with opioids from the Fall 2017 sitting.
- An updated list of key players.
- Debates from the house.
- Press releases from government and non-government groups from the Fall of 2017.
- A look forward at the issues the Government may deal with in the coming sitting.

The opioid crisis has been at the forefront of work in the House of Commons and the Senate since the Liberal government came to power in late 2015. This deadly issue shows no signs to abating in Western Canada and is slowly creeping across the country.
The opioid crisis touches all levels of government and across non-governmental sectors, including government relations, advocacy and those working on the front lines with people suffering from addictions.
This e-book summarizes the work on the opioid crisis that is going on at the federal level: what the House of Commons and the Senate have been listening to and acting on to help stop and mitigate this tragedy.

CanCon Contributions & Quotas In a Digital Age
A complete guide to the regulations on the table in Heritage Canada’s review

As part of Heritage Canada’s review of Canadian content in a digital age, various parties are proposing changes to how digital services are regulated and taxed. Proposals for a “Netflix tax,” an Internet Service Provider (ISP) tax and extending the kind of regulations that are currently in place for traditional TV to streaming services have been floated, drawing both support and criticism.

In a constantly changing industry where companies can be streaming services, ISPs and traditional broadcasters and TV service providers all at once, the impact of such changes will be complex. This report is the most comprehensive — but concise — primer you’ll find on the subject.

Sharp Wits & Busy Pens

May 20, 2016

It’s been 150 years since journalists arrived on Parliament Hill, covering Canada’s budding confederation. Sharp Wits & Busy Pens, written by current and former Parliamentary Press Gallery reporters, tracks the evolution from the days when political journalism was little more than a written transcript of debates. Close ties turned to clashes with government, booze flowed, scandal brewed, women broke down the door to membership and TV cameras arrived and reshaped how Canadians saw Parliament.

Il y a 150 ans cette année, les premiers journalistes arrivaient sur la colline parlementaire à Ottawa pour couvrir la Confédération naissante. Les coulisses de la Tribune, un ouvrage rédigé par d’actuels et anciens membres de la Tribune de la presse parlementaire, retrace l’histoire de cette institution depuis ses débuts, lorsque le journalisme politique n’aspirait guère plus qu’à retranscrire fidèlement les débats parlementaires. Avec force témoignages et anecdotes, Les coulisses plonge dans le récit d’amitiés et de conflits, d’abus d’alcool et de scandales éventés, de l’acceptation difficile des femmes et de l’arrivée de ces caméras de télévision ayant transformé la façon dont les Canadiens voient leur Parlement.
