WHAT'S WRONG WITH BILL C-11?
Bill C-11 is a direct threat to our online freedom.
The government claims this bill is about “supporting Canadian culture” and “leveling the playing field.”
In effect, bill C-11 will put in place an “Internet Czar”—the CRTC— who will pick which content gets moved to the top of the search menu and which content gets pushed to page 53 where it will never be discovered!
This will all be based on an arbitrary set of criteria suspiciously absent from the bill.
This is an extreme infringement on freedom of expression.
Bill C-11 will not only harm digital first creators in their ability to succeed and reach global audiences, but it will also hinder consumers’ ability to view and listen to what they want, instead of what the government picks for them.
Bill C-11 is a terrible bill. Help us kill it!
