In authoritarian nations, government have their hands in all aspects of the lives of citizens. Away from the media spotlight, the phenomenon is currently being replicated in Canada. Examples can be found in all sectors of society– critical race theory, gender identity, digital ID, cryptocurrency, internet censorship, and more.
Liberal Foreign Affairs Minister Melanie Joly has announced government plans to compelling social media giants such as Facebook to “prevent propaganda and counter any form of disinformation.”
The word “disinformation” has come to epitomize the attack on freedom of speech in Canada. Authorities keep its definition arbitrary– it is whatever government say it is. Backed by powerful non-profit organizations, the Liberals are now gunning for internet control through Bill C-11.
In an article from the National Post entitled “Mélanie Joly Should Not Take Cues From Dictators In Fight Against Propaganda,” Jesse Kline writes that Canada’s march toward countering disinformation “is uncomfortably similar to how Russia ratcheted up government control over its internet.”
Russian online controls “started as a way of blocking content related to harmful activities and quickly turned into a means of subverting internal dissent and preventing outside information from getting in.”
Yes– the Liberals shouldn’t take cues from dictators– but they are doing so anyway. PM Justin Trudeau has tasked government with replicating the format of the internet in communist nations like China and Russia. Not that Canadians will be informed of this by legacy media. CBC, Globe & Mail, Toronto Star and the rest have been assigned– as well as been paid– to obfuscate the agenda.
Otherwise known as an internet “firewall,” Liberal Cabinet Member Melanie Joly has some definite ideas on the matter:
“This war is happening with 21st century tools, and social media, the virtual reality, is part of our everyday life. There are some bad actors and these bad actors cannot spoil this environment.”
The Trudeau government has hereby established a battle against propaganda-infused internet content. Bill C-11 is their strategy to win the internet propaganda wars. For this purpose, they will transition internet and social media content to reflect their misinformation, rather than what is presented in a free market structure. As usual, the bottom line is control. As in, control in replication of communist societies in which government has a hand in every aspect of life.
For private users of social media, the key issue in Bill C-11 is the question of regulating user-generated content, referred to in the bill as “content uploaded to a social media service.”
With the introduction of Bill C-11, an opportunity existed to diverge from predecessor Bill C-10 by excluding user-generated content. No other country in the world regulates content this way. Bill C-11 envisions the entire globe as subject to Canadian broadcast jurisdiction. A finer emulation of China’s Great Internet Firewall cannot be found.
A Toronto Sun article on Bill C-11 hits the nail on the head:
“The last thing Canadians need is even more attempts to censor and regulate their social media.”
Cultural Action Party expand on the notion: the last thing Canadians need is for their country to be systemically transitioned to a pseudo-communist society. Unfortunately, Justin Trudeau’s political career can be defined as one giant exercise in the “last thing Canadians need.”
As authoritarian tendencies expand into every element of society, Canadians are want to wake up and smell the neo-communist coffee. Unlikely it is with legacy media in the pocket of the Liberal government.
We recognize an unspoken “win-win” situation. Justin Trudeau and Cabinet are pushing for communist-style internet censorship, including a national firewall. Because establishment media are in direct competition with social media, they want what government want.
Thus we witness what has become a series of replications of communist societies: government and media aligned in ideological goal-setting. On this basis, whatever current propaganda exists on the internet will shift to government-sanctioned internet propaganda. Just as it exists in Justin Trudeau’s preferred nation of China.

We have had enough of Trudeau over the last 4yrs and have decided to leave Canada after living here happily for almost 16yrs. Trudeau has divided this country and is turning it into a “very unstable environment”. We fear the future here is very dark and by the time his tyrannical term is due to end in 2025 Free and fair elections may be a thing of the past
Screw tredeau an all the communist liberals.
I knew he was all about treason on the canadien people and just like his father a dictator. The world needs to change as the government trys and silence the proper word of freedom
Anything not in support of the Liberals or not approved by the Liberals.
Most of the info is correct if Trudeau is mentioned. He is the one that is trying to ruin my life as well as others. If he didn’t do such stupid stunts, Facebook wouldn’t have to clamp down on posts about Liberals/Trudeau.
And so the compulsive, habitual, chronic, pathological liars will be the judges of truth.
What a surprise.
I wish the G G would stop this INSANITY that the Liberals are FORCING on the People of Canada!!!!!! She, as the Queen’s REP. can shut this down, and FORCE an ELECTION!!!!!! PLEASE PEOPLE WAKE UP BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE.
She won’t–guaranteed. She was selected for her incompetency.
This GG worked for his dad and was hand picked by JT. Look at his team n RCMP, judges etc ALL HAND PICKED‼️ Do the math‼️
I’m sure she is a nice lady and good wife, but she has no understanding of globalism, and that’s why Trudeau selected her.
What can we do?
Does it have to pass in the Senate?
If so, is that probable?
When will it be voted on?
yes it has to pass in the Senate. In Trudeau-land, the public cannot influence government, other than in terms of voting in a federal election. Beyond this, our hands are tied.
Censorship causes more social damage than Free Speech.
Where is the opposition to this proposed legislation? I know the NDP are in bed with the Liberals but are there any independent thinkers within these parties? It really sad this may come to reality, Canada will have entered a period of intellectual paralysis.
