The Canadian Senate just passed a censorship bill that has many worried about the future of free speech in Canada.
The Epoch Times reported that Bill C-11, or The Online Streaming Act, passed the Canadian Senate Feb. 2, meaning the censorship bill has passed both houses of the Canadian Parliament.
Bill C-11 would alter Canada’s Broadcasting Act, giving the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) the power to make internet streaming services such as Netflix “contribute to Canadian content rules or else face steep penalties,” The Epoch Times reported.
The Epoch Times said that New Brunswick Sen. David Adams Richards voiced a concern that Bill C-11 could create a culture of censorship in the country. “This law will be one of scapegoating all those who do not fit into what our bureaucrats think Canada should be,” Richards said Jan. 31.
