OTTAWA—Outside adviser David Johnston has rejected calls for a public inquiry into foreign election interference because it would be hindered by the need to keep top secret intelligence private and not shine any light on a problem he also concluded the Trudeau government did not ignore.

In a widely-anticipated report released Tuesday, Johnston did find there are serious problems in how intelligence gets shared through the public service and among political officials, but he did not lay blame at the feet of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government.

“I have found no examples of ministers, the prime minister or their offices knowingly or negligently failing to act on intelligence, advice or recommendations on the issues I investigated related to the 2019 and 2021 elections.”
