Le Journal de Montréal recently smeared me as a Russian propagandist. In a story based upon the ‘research’ of a Canadian military-funded academic, Québec’s most widely circulated newspaper links disrupting politicians on a host of issues to “Russian propaganda.”
In a two-page spread in Monday’s paper Le Journal published an exposé headlined “Qui sont ces participants de la propagande russe à Montréal? Des militants prorusses deviennent viraux en perturbant nos politiciens” (Who are the Russian propaganda participants in Montreal? Pro-Russian Activists Go Viral by Disrupting Our Politicians). The online version of Francis Pilon’s article mentions “Russian propaganda” 19 times and “pro-Russian” three times.
