The armed forces of Canada.

Psychological warfare

The Canadian military deployed an propaganda campaign against its own citizens in April of 2020 using techniques similar to those employed during the Afghanistan war, with the goal of "shaping" and "exploiting" information. The federal government allegedly never asked for the campaign, nor did cabinet authorize the initiative by the Canadian Joint Operations Command, then headed by Lt.-Gen. Mike Rouleau.[1]

A separate initiative, not linked to the CJOC plan, but overseen by Canadian Forces intelligence officers, culled information from public social media accounts in Ontario.[1]
