Liu Lixin also said that it is not surprising that he has become a target of hackers, because the website of the Taiwan government is also frequently encountered, which can be traced back to cyber attacks from China, and pointed out that Taiwan's experience in dealing with these cyber attacks can help Canada and other democracies that have also encountered foreign interference.
She also mentioned that China's cyberattacks and disinformation wars are disrupting the Canadian community, and Taiwan and Canada can share experiences and work together.
The report mentioned that Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) director David Vigneault also pointed out in May this year that social media is used as an individual and a country to spread disinformation, misinformation, and promote hate pipeline, and this situation continues to intensify.
Shen Rongqin also posted on Facebook this morning, sharing the hacking of Liu Lixin, and pointed out that there are signs that this is not a case, and that China is trying to expand the information war from Asia to North America.
On September 27 this year, Facebook also issued a report, announcing that it had closed fake accounts in China and Russia.
Among them, Chinese accounts specifically target Americans to publish controversial topics in an attempt to interfere in the U.S. midterm elections.

At present, China's propaganda war is also expanding in Canada, and Taiwan's overseas units need to be more vigilant.
