Election meddling by China reportedly cost Trudeau support among voters

Yes, reports of Chinese interference in elections have had a negative effect on Trudeau’s popularity among voters. According to a poll conducted by the Angus Reid Institute in May 2020, Trudeau’s approval rating among Canadians had dropped to 37%, its lowest point in four years. The poll also found that 80% of Canadians were concerned about China’s interference in Canadian affairs. This drop in approval rating can be attributed to reports of Chinese interference in the recent federal election in October 2019, as well as the coronavirus pandemic, which has been linked to China.
