Big Government, Free Speech and Tin-Foil Hats: A Discussion on Bill C-10

June 2, 2021

Originally pitched as legislation to force online services like Netflix and Amazon Prime to provide more Canadian content, the powers of Bill C-10 gradually expanded to include provisions that would subject social media posts of Canadians to policing by the national broadcast regulator CRTC.

An assault on free speech? Prime Minister Trudeau claims critics are “tin-foil hat” conspiracy theorists and his Heritage Minister Steven Guilbeault suggested only “extremists” would oppose these measures.

Don’t trust them! For months, the Trudeau government has been suggesting controls should be placed on hurtful words, internet content that disparages public institutions or threatens “social cohesion.” A government directive to the CRTC goes even further instructing bureaucrats to use C-10’s tools “in a way that is consistent with the government’s vision.”

Listen in for a discussion on the state’s role in policing online content and what efforts can be taken to stop the censorship provisions in Bill C-10.Panelists: J.J McCullough, Rachael Harder, Peter Menzies, Joanna Baron and John Robson.
