Canada has appointed a former Governor General to lead an independent inquiry into alleged foreign interference in the country’s elections. David Johnston, the former Governor General, will be given the task of identifying any foreign interference in Canada’s recent federal elections, as well as the use of social media to influence the outcome, and will produce a report within one year. Johnston is an experienced public servant and academic, having served as Chancellor of the University of Waterloo, and President of the University of Saskatchewan. He was also the 28th Governor General of Canada from 2010 to 2017.
