Truthiness

In 2006, Liberal Party of Canada leadership contender Ken Dryden used truthiness as an extensive theme in a speech in the House of Commons. The speech dealt critically with the Harper government’s Universal Child Care Plan.[50] Dryden defined truthiness as “something that is spoken as if true that one wants others to believe is true, that said often enough with enough voices orchestrated in behind it, might even sound true, but is not true.”

The transcript of all debates in the House (Hansard) is made available in both official languages; the translators into French chose to render “truthiness” as fausse vérité (“false truth”).[50]
