Did China cause the massive mobile and Internet outage in Canada?!
Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : China Caused Mobile + Internet Outage In Canada!
Within hours of news breaking that Canada suffered a massive Internet outage, Vancouver Times posted a story claiming that the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) identified China as the responsible party.
Vancouver Times also claimed that the RCMP will issue arrest warrants for the hackers responsible, who are connected to the People’s Liberation Army (PLA).

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by Vancouver Times to generate page views and money from gullible people.
Fact #1 : Vancouver Times Is A Fake News Website
Vancouver Times is a “content aggregator” (copy and paste) website that is known for creating fake news to generate more page views and money.
To look legitimate, they copy and paste news from legitimate news organisations. To drive traffic, they create fake news, sometimes masked as “satire”.
To give themselves a veneer of deniability, they label themselves as a “satire website” in their About Us section.
Here are some of their fake news that we debunked :

- Rapper Lil Keed Died From COVID-19 Vaccine!
- Pfizer VP Rady Johnson Was Arrested For Vaccine Fraud!
- Gilbert Gottfried’s Wife Said He Was Killed By COVID-19 Vaccine!
Fact #2 : Outage Only Affected Rogers Communications
On Friday, July 8, 2022, Canada was hit by a massive mobile and Internet outage that hit businesses, banks, and even police emergency lines.
However, it only affected Rogers Communications, and did not affect rivals like BCE, Telus and Shaw Communications.
The outage was extensive because Rogers is Canada’s leading telecommunications provider, with about 11.3 million wireless subscribers, and 2.25 million retail Internet subscribers.
Fact #3 : RCMP Did Not Blame China For Mobile + Internet Outage
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police did not blame China for Rogers Communications’ mobile and Internet outage.
This was made up by Vancouver Times to trigger right-wing conspiracy theorists, to go viral and draw more page views.
Fact #4 : Rogers Did Not Blame China For Mobile + Internet Outage
Rogers Communications themselves did not blame China for their mobile and Internet outage.
Fact #5 : Canada Confirmed Outage Was Not A Cyberattack
While the reason behind the outage was still unknown, a spokesperson for Canadian Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino confirmed to CTV News that “the outage was not due to a cyberattack“.
Fact #6 : Prior Rogers Outage Due To Software Update
This wasn’t the first time Rogers Communications’ network failed so drastically.
Just 15 months earlier – Rogers and its subsidiary, Fido, experienced a nationwide cellular service outage in April 2021.
That outage was ultimately traced to “a recent Ericsson software update” that “affected a piece of equipment in the central part” of their network, leading to “intermittent congestion impacting many customers across Canada“.
Fact #7 : It Would Have Been Considered An Act Of War
China attacking Canada’s mobile and Internet network would have been considered an act of war, if it was proven.
The Canadian government would at least have issued a strong statement, if not cut diplomatic ties with China and/or enact sanctions against the Chinese government.
Fact #8 : No One Else Reported This Story
China attacking Canada’s mobile and Internet infrastructure would have been major international news, reported across the globe.
Yet not only did no mainstream media cover this incredible story, it hasn’t even been reported in the usual conspiracy theory websites!
That’s because it was a fake story created by one publication – Vancouver Times, in their attempt to go viral again for more page views and ad money.
Fact #9 : There Is No Such Thing As A Publication Ban
Vancouver Times likes to use the “media blackout” claim, to explain why you can’t find any reputable media outlet reporting on China attacking Canada’s mobile and Internet infrastructure.
That’s utter and complete bullshit. No one – not a judge, not even the Canadian government – can control the worldwide media, or prevent anyone from writing about such an incredible story.
You can also be sure that even if the mainstream media in the Canada refused to run the story, it would have been reported by foreign media outlets, websites and blogs.
Yet, not a single foreign media outlet or online website published their account of this incredible story? That’s because IT NEVER HAPPENED…
Fact #10 : Mainstream Media + Big Tech Would Have Loved The Hype
Vancouver Times is gaslighting you about how mainstream media and Big Tech want to hide the “truth” about China attacking Canada’s infrastructure.
They would all loved such shocking news, because it would have driven tons of traffic and engagement to their websites / platforms.
In fact, that was precisely why Vancouver Times created the fake story – to drive traffic, for the ad money.
