Manil -

Can you please view that link, https://digital.canada.ca/, with lynx's
TAGSOUP rendering option enabled? You should be able to toggle between
lynx's TagSoup and SortaSGML rendering with ^V (ctrl-V) (by default,
unless it has been remapped.)

I can interact with the links under "Featured Blog Posts" with TAGSOUP
enabled, I can not interact with them with it disabled. Lynx has two
different rendering methods that it can use; TAGSOUP is one of them,
and using it would appear to solve the issue that you are experiencing
(although I am not entirely sure because you haven't actually said what
the issue *is*, and I'm not having much luck wading through that github
issue page).

To recap: I understand your issue to be an inability to interact with
certain links, examples of which can be found under "Featured Blog
Posts" on the page at https://digital.canada.ca/. I have found that I
can interact with those links while using lynx with TAGSOUP enabled,
and wonder if that might work for you also.
