Although most of Karlstack’s readers are American, a healthy percentage are Canadian, and so am I, therefore I feel a duty to report on the downfall of the country that I once loved.
If you don’t care about Canadian politics, then at least use us a cautionary tale; learn from our mistakes so that you may be free.
Justin Trudeau’s government is currently in the middle of granting itself sweeping new powers that will be used to seize control of the internet, seize control of the media, crush dissent, and control the population. If these 6 bills pass (which they will), Canadians will regret it for the rest of their short, miserable, emasculated lives.
The government says that we need to pass bill C-11 because the last reform of the Broadcasting Act was in 1991, before online streaming services existed. They need modern powers to control the YouTube, TikTok, Facebook algorithms.
Ostensibly this is to prioritize “Canadian content” — the government wants to spoonfeed you only wholesome Canadian content, just like the magnanimous government of North Korea only wants to spoonfeed wholesome North Korean content. MORE
