In the winter of 2022, thousands of Canadians descended on Ottawa for the Freedom Convoy. It was one of the largest displays of civil disobedience in the country's history - a movement by Canadians, for Canadians. But if that's the case, why did Russia's state controlled TV networks send correspondents there? And why did messaging groups devoted to the Convoy start posting press releases from the Kremlin?

Was the Freedom Convoy a Russian influence operation? To find out, we talk with foreign interference and disinformation experts Caroline Orr Bueno, Marcus Kolga, and Aengus Bridgman.
