A manitoba mp distributed a video on social media titled breaking news, trudeau resigns. As david akin reports experts say it pushes the boundaries of political messaging. >> Reporter: this video never erred on ctv news channel and this video never erred on cbc news. The scenes are fiction created for conservative member of parliament brandon leslie. >> Over the coming weeks choose

there next leader. >> Reporter: they were part of a four minute leader -- video leslie released criticizing his time in office but the technique used to do that, experts say, mixing real footage with newscasts from global, ctv and others with out of context news in what amounts to fake news is a problem. >> It is taking the work journalists do and using the model and the formats that journalists used to try to spread things that aren't true. >> This is the first instance of this sort of content that I have seen produced or published by member of parliament and canada. I've not seen anything like this before. It's pushing the boundaries. >> Reporter: leslie shrugged off concerns the doctored images might be mistaken for real news. >> I don't think anyone thinks I'm the guy that will break the news that the prime minister has resigned. I think canadians are very smart. >> Reporter: new democrats take a different view. >> It ought to be absolutely unacceptable and there should be an ethical consensus amongst parties we will not partake in this type of misinformation and disinformation. >> Reporter: matthew green is a member of the house of commons ethics committee that is studying political disinformation and misinformation. >> I call on mp to delete and apologize. >> Reporter: as for the broadcasters ctv says it was concerned about misuse of its low goals -- logos and branding and cbc says it has detected an alarming trend of false ads and news stories. David akin, global news, ottawa. >> Tracy: since a landmark ruling in 1990 the rcmp on occasion have adjusted uniform regulations to reflect cultural and religious diversity in the ranks. The latest addition, a ribbon skirt, as part of the ceremonial uniform options available for indigenous officers who identify as women or two spirit people but as melissa ridgen explains public reaction to the change is largely negative. >> Reporter: it was a soft launch on the rcmp media thursday. Ribbon skirts a symbol of resilience and survival of first nation women now part of the dress uniform options available to rcmp officers. Along with the eagle feather and métis sash. >> It's an immediate know for me >> Reporter: summarizing the wave of reaction. >> Upon me seeing it what I was turned off. I try to unpack, why did I feel that when I saw it? And a big part of it is the historical and ongoing trauma. >> Reporter: social media flooded with hard nose from indigenous folk except on the rcmp's own social media page. >> Comments were turned off when it was posted. Maybe they foresaw some issues or didn't want to deal with the backlash they knew they were going to get. >> Reporter: many felt the announcement did not consider the dark history with the indigenous people from hanging métis leader louis riel in 1885 to the forced relocation of inuit families to the high arctic to act as human flagpoles for canada during the cold war and the forcible removal of first nation children from their homes to residential schools. Inspector kim mueller is cree and worked with other indigenous officers to have it added to the dress code. >> Some of the social media coverage and interviews I've seen so far make assumptions about where this is coming from and that it is a colonial organization taking something sacred and agree to disagree. I am a first nations woman who is a proud police officer and my elders and my family and my community are also proud of that and this is a way to celebrate people like me within the rcmp. >> Reporter: in the end it will be up to the 300 officers who identify as indigenous women or two spirits whether they wear the ribbon skirt as part of their dress uniform or keep their culture and career attire separate. Melissa ridgen, global news, winnipeg. >> Tracy: next, the truth is out there. But who is responsible when space junk hits the ground. A surprising discovery by a saskatchewan's farmer.
