Since becoming Canada’s Prime Minister in 2015, Trudeau has embarked on an ‘assault‘ against Canadian citizens’ most cherished liberties.
The Downfall of Canada’s Free Television and Radio
The bill, known as the Online Streaming Act (Bill C-11), would require major international technology companies that conduct business in Canada to subsidize local Canadian content.
Viewers would essentially be forced to view material online promoted by Big Brother regardless of their personal desires. Conservatives who want to view a Fox News video on YouTube, for example, also might have to view content from the far-left Canadian Broadcasting Company (CBC).
New Legislation On Communications
The legislation also expands the authority of the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to regulate the internet in addition to phones, radio, and television.
The CRTC is made up of nine unelected bureaucrats appointed by Trudeau who already revoked Russian Television’s broadcasting license at the request of the prime minister.
The bureaucrats would be able to remove content online from prominent places that millions of Canadians rely on for their news such as TikTok, Facebook, and YouTube. Conservative Canadian websites such as the Rebel and Canada Free Press would almost certainly find their content censored on those websites by government authorities given how much they have criticized Trudeau.
The Stakes for Democracy
The Trumpet states:
C-11 could create the most authoritarian regulatory framework of any democracy in the world. This makes it a grave threat to overall freedom of expression in Canada. Nearly as reprehensible as the implications of the legislation itself are the tangled thicket of unclear or self-contradictory language within the bill and the evident insincerity and misdirection in the government’s public promotion of C-11. In short, the Liberals are attempting a colossal power grab while pretending they aren’t.
It’s reported that the difference is minimal between what the Liberals are proposing with C-11 and what communist nations such as Cuba and Venezuela have already done to silence the opposition.
Some state that this is a ‘George Orwell’ who warned us about the dangers of totalitarianism many years ago in his legendary novel 1984.
