Authoritarian effort to control social media is attack on our freedom of expression.
The Trudeau government is taking concrete steps to silence our voices.
In just the past few days, the Trudeau government has convinced Twitter to ban parody accounts of cabinet ministers, and are now demanding that Facebook “take action” against what they call “fake news.”
Yet, it turns out that Facebook’s top person in Canada is Kevin Chan. He’s in charge of a new program to fight “fake news,” and will have control over which news stories on Facebook can be seen by Canadians.
And just who is Kevin Chan? He’s a former Policy Director for the Liberal Party.
As if that’s not enough, he helped Bill Morneau promote the Liberal budget.
That’s the guy who’s going to decide what is “fake news” or not in the upcoming election.
But even that isn’t enough for the Authoritarians. The Trudeau Liberals aren’t done.
Trudeau spokesman Cameron Ahmad says “Social media companies should immediately take action to fight back against those who deceive and manipulate for political gain…. Right now it remains clear that more action must be taken.”
Clearly, they aren’t going to stop until all of us have been silenced, using the excuse of “fake news.”
They’ll do everything they can to stop websites like SpencerFernando.com from revealing the truth to Canadians. In fact, some people have already had trouble sharing articles on Facebook and noticed other ‘convenient’ problems accessing my website.
Make no mistake: This is an all out assault on Free Speech and the political opposition.
And that’s why we need to fight back.
A big part of fighting back is taking steps to bypass the social media networks. While we should keep sharing and tweeting, it’s also essential to share articles from SpencerFernando.com and other independent media through email.

The Trudeau Government wants to silence us. But if we are strong, and if we use every tool at our disposal to get the truth out there, we will emerge victorious in the fight for Canada’s freedom.
