You Have More Power Than You Think

As Guilbeault & Trudeau backtrack on Bill C-10 — after demonizing critics — we are seeing the power that individual Canadians can have when they refuse to buy into government propaganda. The Liberal government is in retreat on Bill C-10. A day after saying social media accounts with large followings would be regulated, Steven Guilbeault backtracked: “After suggesting that under Bill C-10, the Canadian Radio-television and telecommunications Commission (CRTC) could impose discoverability regulations on individuals who have a large-enough following online, Heritage Minister Steven Guilbeault has backtracked, saying that’s not the case. In a new statement sent to CTV News late Sunday night, the minister says he used “unclear” language when he referred to people and online channels being subject to federal regulations as part of the government’s updates to the Broadcasting Act.” “In the new statement, the minister says he “should have been more precise” in the words he used, as: “an individual — a person — who uses social media will never be considered as broadcasters and will not be subject to the obligations or regulations within the Broadcasting Act.”
