Liberal’s censorship Bill C-11 goes to third reading, draws Stalin comparison

The Trudeau Liberals’ attempts to censor what Canadians see on the internet went to third reading before the Senate on Wednesday. 

Senator David Richards of New Brunswick made a lengthy speech against the bill. 

“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.”

Richards also said the bill is “censorship passing as national inclusion.” 

Bill C-11, an act to amend the broadcasting act, was tabled last year by the Canadian Minister of Canadian Heritage, Pablo Rodriquez. 

Liberals say the bill will promote Canadian content over non-Canadian content. They also say it will achieve equitable representation among gender, ethnicity, and related “marginalized” groups. 

“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 third reading. 

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

In October, the censorship bill passed second reading in the Senate by a vote of 49-19. If it passes the third reading, it will go to the governor general for royal assent. 

Critics such as Richards are skeptical of the Liberal’s intentions. In fact, big tech has warned Canadians about the bill, including YouTube, Google, and Twitter. 

Last year, Twitter representatives compared the Liberals to communists over their desire to implement mass censorship via Bill C-11.
