Canada: Military propaganda exercise that caused panic about wolves on the loose “lacked oversight” – investigation finds

From the Ottawa Citizen:

A Canadian Forces propaganda exercise that panicked residents in Nova Scotia with tales of wolves on the loose was the result of incompetence and soldiers acting without authorization, a newly released military investigation has revealed.

The September 2020 exercise, which was supposed to test the use of loudspeakers during propaganda training, descended into a comedy of errors.
