One of Jason Kenney's United Conservative Party candidates recently promoted a far-right conspiracy theory falsely claiming Canada has surrendered control of its borders to the United Nations.

As recently as a few months ago, Lac Ste. Anne – Parkland UCP candidate Shane Getson posted statements and shared content that originated on the far-right "Yellow Vest Canada" Facebook group about the UN's Global Migration Compact, an international agreement focused on "safe, orderly and regular migration"

In reality, the compact is actually a non-binding agreement that defines an agreed set of principles on "safe, orderly and regular migration" Despite this, Getson shared alarming memes claiming the UN is pushing "dangerous agendas" on Canada and warning his followers that what he's learned about the UN "scares" him.
