But the federal government sees a problem. Canadians aren’t watching enough of the right stuff and sometimes they say the wrong things. So, the Liberal government introduced Bill C-10 to give the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission more power to oversee what we’re watching and sharing to make sure it conforms to government-approved standards.
That raises a question: who watches the watchers? It’s supposed to be the responsibility of every Canadian to hold governments accountable. But Bill C-10 threatens Canadians’ ability to hold our politicians accountable by targeting our free speech online.
