RCMP in Quebec are taking the fight against foreign interference into the open by launching a public campaign calling for tips about Chinese communist activity. The Chinese version ends, “Let’s work together to fight foreign interference.” Along with asking for tips, RCMP officials and municipal police are scheduled to meet with community members on July 10 in Montreal and the suburb of Longueuil to provide additional information.

The country has been seized with the issue of foreign interference over the past two years, with intelligence leaks in the press and investigations into illegal Chinese police stations operating in Canada. Efforts to forcibly repatriate its nationals, which Beijing refers to as “persuasion to return” to China, are part of the regime’s broader operations to combat telecommunication fraud committed by Chinese living abroad, according to Safeguard Defenders. The NGO warned that operations like “Sky Net” and “Fox Hunt” have also engaged in intimidating and even kidnapping Chinese dissidents, with the campaigns facilitated by the secret Chinese police stations worldwide.
