An internal government briefing document about the online hate speech bill C-36 says that unfettered social media content, in addition to having the potential to be hateful, can “undermine Canada’s social cohesion or democracy.” True North’s Andrew Lawton says this shifts the narrative away from online hate, allowing the Liberals to claim online censorship somehow safeguards democracy.

A Canadian broadcaster and columnist, Andrew serves as a journalism fellow at True North and host of The Andrew Lawton Show.

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.
