It used Twitter to troll Russia.

And Instagram to support Ukraine.
Second time's the charm ...
Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird is on the front line of its efforts.
His ministry is now using BuzzFeed lists to slam its enemies.
First, it took a shot at Iran over Internet freedom.
Then, it fired away at Russia over Ukraine.
Important note: Foreign Affairs is a "Brand Publisher."
That means the ministry can post almost anything it wants.
And the BC Liberal Party made one in May.
So list away, Canada! And don't forget to use lots of GIFs.
