The Trudeau government is proposing the creation of a Digital Safety Commission that will have the power to regulate “harmful online content.” The government is targeting online platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Pornhub.

In the Liberals’ world, expressing a politically incorrect opinion is as much a crime as exploiting a child or publishing nonconsensual intimate images.

True North fellow Lindsay Shepherd breaks down the Trudeau government’s proposed Digital Safety Commission of Canada.

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.
