Hi Reddit!

We’re Bob Zimmer, Chair, and Nathaniel Erskine-Smith and Charlie Angus, Vice Chairs, of the Standing Committee on Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics.

Proof.

Today, we tabled our second report on the role of social media and disinformation in our democracy, which can be read in full here.

Last month, we participated as the Canadian delegation in the U.K.’s International Grand Committee on social media and disinformation. In total, 24 officials from 9 countries representing 447 million people participated.

We’ll be answering questions starting at around 4:45 P.M. (EST).
