Some of the calls have been traced back to a network of right-wing third-party political groups called Canada Strong and Proud, CBC News reported.

Headed by Newfoundlander Chris Russell, the Canada Strong and Proud network includes a national flagship called Proud to be Canadian and regional affiliates like New Brunswick Proud, Ontario Strong, Quebec Fier and Alberta Proud. (A separate network of Prouds that includes Canada Proud, Ontario Proud and BC Proud is not related to Canada Strong and Proud).

The Canada Strong and Proud groups mainly operate as social media pages, which pump out anti-Liberal and NDP memes through Facebook. Some of the groups in the network have also conducted polls via mass-text message.
