Will the Liberals move forward with Communist-style plans to give the government power over what is and isn’t considered ‘news’?
As reported by Blacklock’s, the Liberals are planning to make amendments to the Broadcasting Act.
Those amendments would be the first changes to the act since 1991.
And while it’s called the ‘Broadcasting Act,’ it is widely believed these impending changes aren’t about TV or radio, but are about the Liberal obsession with regulating and controlling internet news and opinion.
As noted by Blacklock’s, Liberal heritage minister Steven Guilbeault “would not say if he will press ahead with unprecedented regulation of internet news media as broadcasters: “Do we try and change everything under the sun?”
Of course, as we remember from early this year, Guilbeault said all media online would need a government license:
Under massive backlash, Guilbeault walked back those comments.
However, as I’ve said repeatedly, the Liberals weren’t giving up on that idea, they would simply seek a sneakier way to pass it through.
And now, it is quite possible that is exactly what they are doing.
In their arrogance, they think we are all distracted by the CCP Virus Crisis, and think people won’t notice a few amendments to the Broadcast Act.
We must prove them wrong.
If the Liberals push forward with internet regulations in an attempt to silence or control their critics, we must make it clear to all Liberal MPs that they will be severely punished at the polls if they vote for an anti-freedom Communist-style internet regulatory scheme.
We cannot let the Liberals get away with it.
