Just six years after the Conservatives repealed section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act, which allowed the government to censor so-called internet hate speech, Liberals on the House of Commons justice committee have proposed bringing it back with even more power.

True North’s Andrew Lawton says the Liberal plan to censor the internet will actually make social media companies state enforcers of the government’s speech code.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
