Just hours after Trudeau’s Censorship Bill C-11 was passed, a federally funded group praised the decision — and called for social media censorship.

Government funded group praises Trudeau’s new censorship law

Bill C-11 was tabled last year by the Canadian Minister of Canadian Heritage, Pablo Rodriquez — and passed on Thursday by a 52 – 16 margin. 

Hours later, a group called The Coalition for the Diversity of Cultural Expressions (CDCE) issued a press release, literally praising the bill.

“CDCE Praises the passage of Bill C-11!” the press release read.   

In 2019, the CDCE received $365,000 from the Rodriquez’s Canadian Heritage department to be spread out over five years. The group’s website says it’s “the voice of the cultural community.”

“The CDCE celebrates a great day, but notes that the real work has just begun,” the group statement said on Thursday.

Bill C-11 requires online streaming services like YouTube and Netflix to follow content requirements and regulations, effectively propping up content the government wants, while making it harder for creators who don’t align with the feds to succeed. 

For example, Netflix will be required by Canadian law to invest in Canadian content that aligns with the feds’ obsession with equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI).

“In terms of diversity and inclusion, one of the goals of the bill is to put diverse and marginalized voices in the spotlight,” said Senator Dennis Dawson of Quebec during the bill’s third reading.

“For example, Indigenous people, racialized people, 2SLGBTQI+ communities, people with disabilities and women must be represented on screen and behind the scenes.”

Big tech has warned Canadians about the Bill, with YouTube, Google, and Twitter all unhappy about it.

Last year, Twitter representatives compared the Liberals to communists over their desire to regulate content.

And just before the Bill was passed, Senator David Richards compared it to what Joseph Stalin would do. 

“This law will be one of scapegoating all those who do not fit into what our bureaucrats think Canada should be,” he said.

“Stalin, again, will be looking over our shoulder when we write.”
