Taylor Owen OpEd


In his latest Globe and Mail op-ed, Professor Taylor Owen argues that Facebook threatens the integrity of Canadian democracy. With Facebook’s recent announcement of the Canadian Election Integrity Initiative, Professor Owen argues that we are heading into new and immensely challenging public policy terrain and what is certain is that the easy and politically expedient relationship between Silicon Valley and government must come to an end.

Take a look at his op-ed here.

Taylor Own is Assistant Professor of Digital Media and Global Affairs at UBC’s School of Journalism and School of Public Policy and Global Affairs and director of the Lind Initiative in U.S. Studies.
