A false blog post claiming that the Trudeau government sent $465 million in foreign aid to Afghanistan, only to have it "disappear," continues to be shared online.

The right-wing fringe political party that originally penned the post is one of a handful of Canadian groups that peddle false and misleading information online in an effort to spread xenophobic ideas, according to the Canadian Anti-Hate Network.

On April 29, the Cultural Action Party published a blog post on its website titled "Trudeau Govt Hand $465 Million To Afghanistan, Funds Disappear." Since its original publication, the story has been posted to dozens of Facebook groups and garnered more than 20,000 interactions, according to the social media monitoring site CrowdTangle.
