In truth, Canada needs a thorough and honest inquiry into foreign political funding, online manipulation and influence.

Unfortunately, the $2.5-million probe into "foreign funded defamation" of Alberta's fossil-fuel industry announced by Alberta Premier Jason Kenney's government last week at a news conference in Calgary isn't it.

How could it be? It's been established to buttress a widely criticized conspiracy theory that proved useful to the United Conservative Party's election campaign and may yet have some utility in the efforts of Andrew Scheer and the Conservative Party of Canada to win the federal election this fall.
