It's safe to say China's foreign ministry does not often pay much attention to obscure Canadian research organizations run by conspiracy theorists.

But earlier this month the ministry's spokesman tweeted in English not once but three times about two surprising articles from the Montreal-based Centre for Research on Globalization.

"This is so astonishing that it changed many things I used to believe in," Lijian Zhao wrote to 500,000 followers on a social-media platform his fellow Chinese are banned from using. "Please retweet to let more people know about it."
