Guilbeault claims Conservatives are spreading “fake news” about Bill C-10


Liberal Heritage Minister Steven Guilbeault referenced a federally-funded organization in his defence of Bill C-10 on Monday and claimed the Conservative Party is spreading “fake news” about the incoming internet regulation bill. “I would like to quote the head of the Coalition for the Diversity of Cultural Expressions (CDCE) who addressed my colleague saying that the CRTC has never regulated content on Canadian TV and radio and that it has never limited freedom of expression on the airwaves and that this legislation will not enable the CRTC to do so and yet the Conservative Party of Canada that continues to spread this fake news,” said Guilbeault in French in response to a question by Conervative MP Alain Reyes. This isn’t the first time a Liberal MP has accused critics of spreading “fake news.” True North has compiled a list of ten times the Liberals dismissed facts as “fake news” or “disinformation.” Last week, Guilbeault cited the CDCE while responding to a question by Conservative MP Rachel Harder.
