Reuters: Canada should prepare for Russia destabilization efforts: minister
Canada's foreign affairs minister said on Monday that her country should be prepared for Russia to try to destabilize its political system, saying it would be similar to its efforts in the United States.
Chrystia Freeland, who is a critic of Russia and is barred from entering that country, was asked whether Russia had engaged in a smear campaign against her after negative articles appeared in pro-Russian media about her Ukrainian grandfather.

"I think that Canadians and, indeed, other Western countries should be prepared for similar efforts to be directed at us."
