This week, the Trudeau government quietly passed its controversial online censorship bill without any discussion or debate through committee.

C-11 seeks to expand federal regulatory powers to the online realm and would expand government regulation to user-generated content. Critics of the bill have called the law an overreach and violation of Canadians’ right to freedom of expression.

As Anthony Furey explains, C-11 will likely pass the House of Commons with the support of the NDP and it will be up to the Senate to put a stop to this radical piece of legislation.


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.
