Prévenir les menaces à l’approche des élections fédérales

Montréal, 28 février 2019 - Si on se fie aux élections américaines et françaises — et à celles d'autres pays — nous sommes tout aussi vulnérables à la manipulation par des forces extérieures avant nos propres élections fédérales. Sommes-nous prêts à faire face à ce qui nous attend, y compris la désinformation et la propagande à caractère politique ? Plus important encore, que peuvent faire les électeurs pour combattre ces éléments et que peuvent faire les médias pour gagner la confiance du public ? Grégoire Lemarchand, rédacteur en chef adjoint et directeur des médias sociaux chez Agence France-Presse, et Stéphane Perrault, directeur général des élections à Élections Canada, partageront leurs points de vue dans une conversation avec Anne-Marie Dussault, animatrice de l’émission 24/60 de Radio-Canada, qui animera la soirée.
