Guilbeault tries to dismiss social media censorship rumours


During a House of Commons committee meeting on Monday, Liberal Minister of Canadian Heritage Steven Guilbeault claimed that his government had no plans to censor Canadians online despite seeking to introduce sweeping social media regulations. Guilbeault made the comments in response to a question by Liberal MP Tim Louis while appearing before the Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage. The committee is currently studying the Liberal government’s proposed Bill C-10 which seeks to revamp Canada’s Broadcasting Act. “[It’s] clearly not what we’re doing. There’s no censorship in Canadian broadcasting right now. There’s different types of stations, different types of TV, radio stations that will have different angles on the political spectrum. This is totally normal in a democracy,” said Guilbeault.
