The committee tasked with investigating how disinformation and personal data can be manipulated to influence the balance of power in this country has only just scratched the surface of the issue, according to its new report.

The House access to information, privacy and ethics committee released a report Tuesday containing 26 recommendations for how the government can better protect Canadians' information, and limit foreign entities from interfering in Canada's democratic process.

The second report from the committee on the topic recommends stricter rules for how political parties and third-parties manage personal information. It also recommends a tightened reporting structure for makers of political ads to follow.
