A recognizable name and face will lead the probe into possible election interference in our country.

Former Governor General David Johnston has been appointed as the special rapporteur to investigate the matter.

Johnston served as the 28th Governor General of Canada from 2010 to 2017.

Prior to that role, he was a law professor for 45 years.

Reports by the Globe and Mail through detailed security documents leaked to the outlet indicate alleged attempts by China’s Communist Party to interfere in the last two federal elections.

Opposition parties have been calling for a public inquiry to get to the bottom of it and Johnson will have the ability to order such a probe if deemed necessary.
