$8M Alberta advertising campaign against federal net-zero rules rolls out in 4 provinces

The Alberta government’s $8-million campaign to “educate Canadians and Albertans” on the impacts of new emissions regulations proposed by the federal government has begun rolling out across the country.

The campaign, involving a wide range of television, web, social, billboard and other forms of advertising, will run just a little more than a month, until Nov. 2, when the federal government’s public input period on net-zero rules is set to conclude.

It’s running in Alberta, Ontario, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, chosen because they are the regions “most impacted by the regulations,” a spokesperson with the province said.

“The campaign is intended to educate Canadians and Albertans on the impacts of these unaffordable regulations, and encourage the federal government to make changes needed to keep Canada’s electricity affordable and reliable,” wrote Ryan Fournier, a spokesperson for Rebecca Schulz, Alberta’s minister of environment and protected areas, in a statement.

Last week, Alberta Premier Danielle Smith said her government was preparing a Sovereignty Act motion in an effort to push back against Ottawa’s planned emissions reductions. The Alberta Electric System Operator (AESO), the organization responsible for operating the province’s power grid, had said the clean electricity regulations could lead to blackouts. 

Federal Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault has said his government shares the goals of AESO to achieve decarbonization while maintaining affordability and reliability.

It’s a fight that is likely to play out over months and even years, and the advertising campaign signifies how much of this debate isn’t being fought over technical arguments, said Daniel Béland, director of the McGill Institute for the Study of Canada.

“It’s a political fight between the government of Alberta and the feds. I think that regardless of what numbers

Researchers Find New Android Spyware Campaign Targeting Uyghur Community

Sep 06, 2022Ravie Lakshmanan

Spyware Campaign

A previously undocumented strain of Android spyware with extensive information gathering capabilities has been found disguised as a book likely designed to target the Uyghur community in China.

The malware comes under the guise of a book titled “The China Freedom Trap,” a biography written by the exiled Uyghur leader Dolkun Isa.

“In light of the ongoing conflict between the Government of the People’s Republic of China and the Uyghur community, the malware disguised as the book is a lucrative bait employed by threat actors (TAs) to spread malicious infection in the targeted community,” cybersecurity firm Cyble said in a report published Monday.

The existence of the malware samples, which come with the package name “com.emc.pdf,” was first disclosed by researchers from the MalwareHunterTeam late last month.

Spyware Campaign

Distributed outside of the official Google Play Store, the app, once installed and opened, displays a few pages of the book, including the cover page, an introduction, and a letter purportedly sent by Michael Kozak and Sam Brownback to Isa on June 15, 2018, condoling his mother’s death.

In reality, however, the malicious APK file is engineered to:

  • hide the app icon,
  • steal device and SIM information,
  • steal SMS messages, contacts and call logs,
  • identify neighboring cell information (received signal strength, Cell ID location),
  • make calls and send SMSes on behalf of victims,
  • delete SMS and call logs, and
  • take pictures from the infected device’s camera and capture its screen.

“TAs are leveraging various methods, including regional and biogeographical conflicts, to fulfill their malicious intentions,” the researchers said. “In this case, they are seen taking advantage of the Uyghur-Chinese conflict to target unsuspecting individuals.”
