Google joins Twitter in Slamming Liberal’s Censorship Bill C-11

Google executives have slammed the Trudeau Liberal’s plan to censor the internet by passing Bill C-11. 

Neal Mohan, Chief Product Officer of YouTube (which is owned by Google), wrote a blog on Wednesday titled “Canada: Keep YouTube yours.”

“… What’s deeply concerning is that the current version of the Bill has the potential to disadvantage the Canadian creators who build their businesses on our platform, and change the personalized experience of millions of Canadians who visit YouTube every day,” said Mohan.

Bill C-11 has passed in the House of Commons and is now making its way through the Senate.

Under Bill C-11, search engines like Google will be required to boost news organizations that promote “racialized communities, cultural and linguistic minorities, LGBTQ2+ communities, and persons with disabilities.” Consequently, non-compliant news publishers not focusing on such far-left topics will be punished by receiving lower rankings in searches.

Mohan sounded off about how the bill will affect Canadians’ online experience.  

“We have a responsibility to our Canadian viewers and creators to inform them of changes to their online experience. And we think it’s worth standing up for our viewers’ interests and creators’ livelihoods.”

Earlier this year, Twitter also scolded the Trudeau government’s proposal to become the internet’s ‘Online Safety’ gatekeepers. 

Twitter representatives went as far as to compare the Trudeau Liberals to communists over their desire to implement mass censorship via Bill C-11.

The proposal by the government of Canada to allow the Digital Safety Commissioner to block websites is drastic. People around the world have been blocked from accessing Twitter and other services in a similar manner as the one proposed by Canada by multiple authoritarian governments (China, North Korea, and Iran, for example) under the false guise of ‘online safety’ impeding peoples’ rights to access information online.”

“Further, there are no checks or balances on the commissioner’s authority, such as the requirement of judicial authorization or warnings to service providers. The government should be extremely mindful of setting such a precedent – if Canada wants to be seen as a champion of human rights, a leader in innovation and in net neutrality globally, it must also set the highest standards of clarity, transparency and due process in its own legislation.”

If Bill C-11 passes, organizations like The Counter Signal, True North, Rebel News, and The Post Millennial will be shuffled to the last page of search results.
