Trudeau Liberals to launch new bureaucracy to regulate Canadians’ social media content
The Trudeau Liberals are moving forward with their plan to weed out “hate and harassment” from the internet, and will be presenting their plan to cabinet next week. If approved, the legislation would allow the government to give big tech giants such as Google, Facebook, and Twitter, fines for not removing content deemed “illegal,” an anonymous source told the Globe and Mail. The size of the operation would “likely involve the creation of a new government regulator,” creating a bureaucracy around what is on Canadian internet, the Globe continued. The moves come after riots in Washington, DC were pinned on the actions of President Donald Trump, who was later impeached for incitement of insurrection.
