Two troubling pieces of legislation are set to become law, and could have drastic implications for how Canadians access the internet. Bills C-11 and C-18 would give the government unprecedented powers to regulate what type of content Canadians are able to view online and stifle free speech.

The government claims that more regulation of the internet is needed in order to combat hate speech and protect vulnerable groups. It’s time for a reality check.

On this episode of Reality Check, Jasmine explains how both bills are redundant and counterproductive. Jasmine says Canadians can choose what they want to say and hear and that this shouldn’t be up to the government to decide.

Tune into the final episode of this season of Reality Check with Jasmine Moulton!

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.
