A new poll finds that just under half of Canadians think the federal government’s plan to regulate internet speech will make online platforms safer. But a majority agree with the government’s bolstering of sentences for hate speech. True North’s Andrew Lawton says it’s clear from the last few years that many Canadians simply don’t support free speech, which may make this catastrophic bill a political win for the Liberals.

Also, Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre has taken aim at corporate Canada, telling business leaders at a trade board meeting that he won’t be beholden to big business and lobbyists and that if they want anything from his government, it has to serve Canadians’ interests. Macdonald-Laurier Institute domestic policy director Aaron Wudrick weighs in.

Plus, the federal government is defending its carbon tax and other environmental policies by appealing to the existence of a “climate crisis.” But does the evidence support such a claim? Fraser Institute senior fellow Kenneth Green says it doesn’t. He joins Andrew to explain.
