Heritage Minister Steven Guilbeault is accusing the Conservative party of kowtowing to an “extremist element” in the party for criticizing Bill C-10, a Liberal government bill that will regulate online content, including user-generated content shared on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

True North’s Andrew Lawton says the Liberals’ frequent accusations of extremism and “fake news” are precisely why they should not be trusted to regulate the internet.
