World Economic Forum says conspiracy theories ‘poisoning’ public debate
The World Economic Forum — best known for its annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland, where some of the world’s most powerful people in business and politics rub shoulders — is no stranger to criticism. But in in recent years, the organization has become the target of widespread conspiracy theories. Chief among them: that the forum is trying to launch an authoritarian, socialist world government through a plan called “The Great Reset.”
Prominent Conservatives have also taken aim at organization. Conservative leadership frontrunner Pierre Poilievre has said that, should he form a government, his ministers would not be allowed to attend the yearly meeting. Adrian Monck, a managing director at the World Economic Forum, joins The House to talk about the origins of anti-WEF conspiracy theories and what Canadian politicians can do to stop their spread.

Diversity and Inclusion Minister Ahmed Hussen joins The House to explain what he is doing to make sure similar mistakes can be avoided in the future.
