Canada is now an authoritarian state   Dare you - Canada

Started 12-Jun by Apollonius (Theocritos); 387 views.

Two decades ago, when I was 4 years old, my parents immigrated to Canada from India in search of greater freedoms, autonomy and economic opportunities. They’re core Canadian values — enshrined in our national anthem, which gloriously heralds “The True North strong and free.”

However, the past two years have seen a near complete erosion of the foundational liberal values that have attracted millions of immigrants like myself to this country.

The chair of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC)  has confirmed that the Trudeau government’s Bill C-11 would crack down on user content – contrary to the government’s own testimony.

Testifying at a Canadian heritage committee hearing on Tuesday, CRTC chair Ian Scott said, “[Section] 4.2 allows the CRTC to prescribe by regulation user uploaded content subject to very explicit criteria. That is also in the Act.”

Section 4.2 of the bill allows the CRTC to issue regulations on social media companies that could affect the reach of content – favouring some content over others.

Commission general counsel Rachelle Frenette attempted to clarify the regulatory powers the CRTC would have but ended up further obfuscating the commission’s powers.

“The commission could, for example, issue certain rules with respect to discoverability, could perhaps issue rules…to respond to certain concerns on accessibility.”

This witness testimony before the Canadian heritage committee appears to contradict statements made by heritage minister Pablo Rodriguez.

Rodriguez had made assurances that the issues in previous versions of the bill were “fixed” and that corporations were the bill’s targets, not individuals.

Honestly I feel very sorry for the Canadians, most of them are so well informed, peaceful and polite! 

Absolutel'y - totally!! 

I'm starting to become less polite and starting to speak my mind.
