Fact check: A leaked message outlining alleged Canadian govt plan to create a totalitarian state through lockdowns and credit strategy is fake - 2020-10-27
A video shared online that is said to show a doctor revealing a Canadian government strategy to transform the country into a totalitarian state has been created using false information.
The footage (here), posted to YouTube on Oct. 23, features osteopath and Rashid Buttar, who has previously spread videos with conspiracy theories (here, here) , reading an email that he says was sent to him by a woman called "Denise", who claimed to have detail on Canada's plan.
"This is based upon what actually happened at a meeting in the legislative bodies on the Liberal side in Canada," Buttar tells the camera as he reads the message that is taken verbatim from an Oct. 14 post on The Canadian Report, a news aggregator and blog site (here). The post, itself, also resembled an email, and claimed to have been sent by an anonymous member of the Liberal Party of Canada.
