Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says hate and misinformation flowing in cyberspace must not be allowed to infect the minds of Canadians.
Trudeau made the comment Thursday during an international discussion on the Internet.
“There is no doubt: the digital space has incredible power for good. But from disinformation on vaccines to online extremism, we’ve also seen the threat it can pose to our democratic values, systems and our citizens,” Trudeau said via video link from Ottawa to the Paris Peace Forum.
The Canadian Press said Trudeau was addressing a panel on the challenges of the digital domain after co-founding a new international program last year called the Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence.
“About three minutes into his presentation from Ottawa, Trudeau’s screen froze, and then cut out,” CP reported.
