Mainstream media hide the truth on migration crisis in Canada

Summary of Disinformation

On the morning on January 21 2019, at least 13 people crossed the border illegally into Canada in only two hours. Mainstream media did not report about this; only alternative media dare telling the truth.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation on fluxes of migrants. No evidence provided for the alleged border crossing. The narrative of the "mainstream media hiding the truth" is a popular conspiracy theory consistent with pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives attacking and discrediting Western media, for examples see here and here.
