Look what Trudeau tweeted two days ago:
"Social media platforms must be held accountable for the hate speech & disinformation we see online – and if they don’t step up, there will be consequences. We launched Canada's new Digital Charter today to guide our decisions, learn more about it here”
I’ll get into that “digital charter” in a moment. So that’s the stick. But there’s a carrot, too, and that came yesterday:
Federal government names organizations that will help spend $660M journalism fund.
(Just last November that was $595 million, remember? They haven’t even spent it yet, and it’s already now $660 million. That’s Trudeau for you, isn’t it?)
You’ve got a Liberal party that’s so low in the polls it’s coming in fourth in by-elections.
The Media Party is now reporting on things they would have ignored.
A campaign of demonization and name-calling won't be enough. It didn’t win it for Rachel Notley in Alberta last month.
I’ve been warning about Justin Trudeau’s plans to censor the Internet for years.
So let’s look at what’s coming now:
TONIGHT I'll take you through Trudeau's so-called "digital charter."
Most of it is gobbledegook from clueless politicians and bureaucrats and lobbyists and scammers. I think this might be like what the inside of Trudeau’s mind looks like, along with lots of marijuana.
And here are the friends of Justin who will purse out the $600 mil:
The eight associations that have been asked to select a representative to sit on the independent panel by the middle of June are: News Media Canada, the Association de la presse francophone, the Quebec Community Newspaper Association, the National Ethnic Press and Media Council of Canada, the Canadian Association of Journalists, the Fédération professionnelle des journalistes du Québec, Unifor and the Fédération nationale des communications.
So those are lobbyists. They will divide up the pie. Huge disproportion in Quebec.
But look at that one: Unifor. Run by Jerry Dias. The union that publicly declared it was going to war against Andrew Scheer and the Conservatives. Unifor, that is taking huge amounts of their members union dues, and using it to campaign against the conservatives just like last time.
So let’s recap:
$600 million (or is it $660 million) for Trudeau’s friends. Trudeau’s ally Jerry Dias, the Unifor boss, will choose them.
Censorship — through “voluntary” private agreements with internet companies like Twitter and Facebook and YouTube.
What’s in those agreements? Don’t worry your pretty little head.
I mean, you can trust Justin Trudeau, right...?
