    Canada involved in another anti-democratic process of meddling in a foreign election. Or maybe it's some advanced means to pull a fast one and have the vote negated due to this revelation.

    If it's not Uranium One or a British spy dossier being shared in Canada, it's this. America be aware, we are not trustworthy.

    B.C. firm was used to violate U.K. election spending laws ahead of Brexit, whistle-blowers say

    The whistle-blower at the centre of an international furor over misused Facebook data is now also alleging that the 2016 Brexit vote was tainted when U.K. campaign funds were wrongly routed to a Canadian consultancy he helped start.

    Canadian political consultant Christopher Wylie made these allegations in an exclusive sit-down interview with The Globe and Mail in London on Sunday, just hours after a second whistle-blower emerged on the front pages of the London Observer.

    Shahmir Sanni, a former volunteer for Vote Leave campaign, said he had first-hand knowledge about the alleged wrongdoing in the Brexit campaign. He said a B.C. firm was paid £625,000 ($1.14-million) as British campaign entities sought to circumvent limits on their spending.


    Prior to these new allegations, Victoria-based AggregateIQ had already been under pressure. For months, government regulators have been pursuing probes to determine the Canadian consultancy’s role in shaping the Brexit vote. They also wanted to know about the firm’s links to a similar U.K. consultancy, Cambridge Analytica.
