Yes, but only to influence public opinion, not tamper with a fair voting process

No. I think that this is a bad move that goes against our democratic values, and makes us look just as bad as the state we're trying to "save". This has often backfired throughout history.

Foreign elections in other countries aren't really any of Canada's business to be honest.

@95DH7PGfrom British Columbia  answered…5mos

No, this makes us go against some of our most important principles in tampering with democratic systems. If we were to do this, are we any better than dictators and despots who have sham elections? No. But we can influence countries through diplomatic efforts and shared interests to help make progress on global issues.

No, after all, we should not try to influence any other country’s elections or policy because it’s not only ended in disaster in the long run, but it would be considered a Crime against Democracy, aka Democracide. However, personally, we should, but only to A. address security threats, not monetary interests, B. protect the country from human rights violations by a tyrannical ruler, and C. influence public opinion, & not tamper with a fair voting process, just as long as our actions are not considered a Democracide aka Crimes against Democracy, then I’m for it.

Yes, other countries are interfering with our elections too much and we should start doing it back

@8Z87ZRQfrom Ontario  answered…12mos

Yes, pressure them to catch up w the West in women's rights, children's, LGBT and animal. Cultural relativism is a cowardly betrayal of rights that MUST be universal.

@8YPV9GG answered…1yr

Yes, to the extent that not doing so would have catastrophic consequences for the world. As such, this should only be done against countries who are endangering the world via nuclear threat or climate change-related behaviors. Which is to say Russia and Brazil specifically, maybe India.

If we focus on cleaning up our own back yard we will be a better example. We should use influence to support global human rights, environmental stewardship, and collaborative economic sustainability.

United Nations should collectively agree and do so. This way no one country is singled out as being intrusive.

@8TXCC9Yfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

Yes, if the elected party would be a serious threat and hazard to the most unprotected of the population or is hostile and violent to canada and what it stands for

@8TN4GLWfrom Quebec  answered…2yrs

No, but outreach to foreign areas regarding their political rights and how and where to go for their voices to be heard would be nice.

@Jatzuyufrom British Columbia  answered…2yrs

No, your country your own influence. Influencing foreign elections may lead to arising complications between the relationship of countries.

@8LVHB2Kfrom Ontario  answered…2yrs

Yes, but only to protect the country from human rights violations by a tyrannical ruler, by influencing public opinion.

@8KTRB5Z from Ohio answered…2yrs

Yes, but only to protect the country from human rights violations by a tyrannical ruler. The U.S. government should not tamper with the voting process of foreign elections.

@558YLXV answered…2yrs

Yes, but only publicly; no country should covertly influence or interfere with foreign elections.
