Globe and Mail: Canadian companies inadvertently finance conspiracy-theory sites through ads placed on Google

Globe and Mail: Canadian companies inadvertently finance conspiracy-theory sites through ads placed on Google. “Google has placed ads from a host of Canadian companies – including airlines, banks, clothing and food stores – as well as public bodies such as Quebec City tourism – on sites that have raised alarm bells with groups tracking pro-Russian coverage and misinformation. The Globe found more than a dozen ads for Canadian companies appearing on American and French sites including for companies such as Scotiabank, Jetlines, Mattress Mart and Farm Boy.”
