The purpose of this story is complex. It is no doubt another false story. Its role is to grab all (google) searches that use keywords like “hoax” and “soldier” and “Ottawa War Memorial” and even “Ricky Gervais” and divert from any real search results exposing the Ottawa War Memorial Shooting Hoax.

Notice how they didn’t identify any names, officials, or real investigative details.

A man interviewed by the CBC during a Remembrance Day ceremony in Ottawa on Tuesday falsely identified himself as a sergeant in the Canadian Armed Forces, according to the broadcaster.

The man, who referred to himself as Franck Gervais during CBC’s coverage at the National War Memorial, is not a member of the Canadian Armed Forces, according to the Department of National Defence.

The only war we the people are in is an information war. The real cyber war is between the PRC and its uninformed shitizens who are grasping at their (portable) telescreens, waiting for the next lie.

Do you really think real soldiers would even bother to call in to complain, if in fact the actually did see him on TV (no proof he was even on TV)?

“We have since learned that he was not, that his uniform was not correct, and that he was wearing medals he had not earned. All this was drawn to our attention by veterans and serving members, who were understandably angry at seeing this counterfeit soldier.

    They do this kind of thing all the time. It’s become part of my regular news rounds to check google news for “fake” and “hoax”. Very common to see MSM covering “hoaxes” relating to fake news stories. Hoaxes within hoaxes within hoaxes…

    This same sort of Google search diversionary tactic was done with “ebola hoax” a short while back. Just when the public started crying HOAX concerning the ebola scare, a no-doubt-fake story was published about an “ebola hoax” which had nothing to do with what WE know as the ebola hoax and this story is what came up first on Google when a search was done. It didn’t last long though. I’ve seen this tactic used in other contexts as well.
