International media spread two fake stories about Canadian immigration. It's weird, but don't panic - 2019-09-05
On Saturday, a British tabloid falsely reported that a convicted child killer could secretly be sent to Canada.
Then, an Israeli newspaper published a fake story Wednesday about Canada quietly taking in 100,000 Palestinians.
It's weird that two reputable international media outlets would publish false stories about Canadian immigration in the span of one week, but two examples don't amount to a trend, said Stephanie Carvin, an assistant professor of international affairs at Carleton University and former national security analyst.
