Liberals Appear To Be Targeting ‘Dissent’ With New Social Media Laws

As expected, the government will claim they are ‘protecting Canadians,’ while actually seeking to protect government from the criticism that is necessary in a free society.

According to a concerning new report from Blacklock’s, the Liberal government appears to be targeting ‘dissent’ with their new social media laws.

It appears that the Liberal government wants to target speech that is “chipping away at credibility of our government institutions.”

“TESTIMONY: @CdnHeritageMinister @S_Guilbeault & MP @JulieDabrusin muse #Facebook law should target political dissent “chipping away at credibility of our gov’t institutions”. #cdnpoli”

So much for ‘fighting hate.’

This is highly disturbing.

In a free society, it is the job of the government to maintain their own credibility, and if they lose that credibility it is because people have freely chosen to turn against those in power.

Citizens are supposed to be free to express ourselves and criticize the government.

Now, it appears the Liberals are trying to completely overturn things, using government power to control what people can say in order to ‘protect’ the government from people disagreeing with them.

As you can imagine, this moves Canada into a more authoritarian sphere, and is completely incompatible with free expression and democracy.

How long until the government tries to silence your voice for ‘daring’ to disagree with them?

There is now zero doubt: Our rights and freedoms are facing a sustained assault from the entrenched government elites.
