Conservative MP Michael Cooper is introducing a motion aimed at broadening the scope of a parliamentary committee study regarding allegations of election interference by China. He also criticized the Liberal government for failing to take substantial action to address the issue.

Mr. Cooper said he intended to introduce the motion in the House of Commons Procedure and House Affairs Committee (PROC). The motion calls for expanding a study the PROC previously launched to begin a committee investigation into the alleged targeting in 2021 of Conservative MP Michael Chong and his family living in Hong Kong by a now-expelled Chinese diplomat, Wei Zhao.
“There are many unanswered questions surrounding how multiple CSIS [Canadian Security Intelligence Service] memos regarding Beijing’s threats to MP Chong’s family were ignored by the Liberal government,” Mr. Cooper said in a statement posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, on Sept. 26.
