MONTREAL -- A Montreal actress is calling on voters to think critically about what they see online after being falsely accused of appearing in a campaign video for Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer.

Adina Katz says she's still reeling from the barrage of attacks she received from social media users who misidentified her in a video shared on Scheer's social media.

"It just goes to show anybody can be a target, so it really is scary," Katz said by phone Tuesday. "I just want people to be really careful and to recognize that there is a person on the other side of that screen."
