The Epoch Times, a newspaper that has polarized people over its content, is coming under fire for advancing a conspiracy theory about the origin of the coronavirus — and having it delivered straight into people's mailboxes unsolicited.

Some Canadians who received it by mail and a postal carrier who says he is forced to deliver it are angry over a special eight-page edition of the paper exploring the idea that the virus that causes COVID-19 was created as a biological weapon and arguing it should be called "the CCP virus," a reference to the Chinese Communist Party.

People in Oakville, Etobicoke, Markham, and Toronto, Ont. all reported getting copies of a special edition of the Epoch Times, as did residents in Vancouver, Kelowna, B.C., and Winnipeg. Some of them expressed concerns to CBC News over the content. Complaints have also surfaced on social media.
