Trudeau takes an "authoritarian" approach to so-called "fake news"

On last night's show, Sun columnist Candice Malcolm joined me to explain why she thinks Canadians should be worried about Justin Trudeau's authoritarian campaign against so-called "fake news".

Trudeau has already ordered Facebook to crack-down on "fake news", despite evidence proving an insignificant percentage content on the website is actually fake news.

After Trudeau's "peoplekind" gaffe his Principal Secretary Gerald Butts lashed out on Twitter at the outlets laughing at his boss, calling them "Nazis". Since then, Environment Minister Catherine McKenna referred to a Sun article by Candice as "fake news".

With these visceral reactions in mind, can we expect conservative news outlets like The Rebel and the Sun to be targets of the Trudeau government?

The Liberals have indicated that their next budget will include bailouts for failing newspapers. With even more of Canada's media beholden to Trudeau, like the CBC, can we expect them to report critically on his actions the way we do?

When even many Quebeckers are starting to protest The Boy Blunder’s take on things, you just know that Buttskie and TBB are starting to “hunker down”… Stay tuned…

Harley.. LOL That’s more than funny..
We definitely know that Trudeau is not stupid.. ( he is just working for somebody else other than Canadians ) however he is counting on the fact that we the people are.!!
So far is voting base in Ontario is still well and properly duped… However the people in Quebec are actually waking up to Trudeau and mounting protests against him or growing daily all the way from Partisan groups to the Asian community and everything in between.. If he is going to seize power he is doing it the way that every dictator in the past has done.. He knows his time is limited by a law that he can’t stand so he will have to play his hand quickly if his plan is going to succeed.

… Completely revealing of the fundamental dishonesty of the Liberal government that they feel the need to cheat to win. And, it is completely revealing of their contempt for Canadians that they don’t feel the need to hide their cheating.
… Trudeau is a compulsive liar and a compulsive cheat. And, there are never any consequences.

turdo is going to make people disappear for wrong think. Heidi will set up the reeducation camp (where they burn crosses) complete with 24 hour government media playing. Hard cases of wrong think will be broken with the PMs wife singing 24-7.
The definition of wrong think is anything the liebrals dont agree with.

The tide is turning…..here and elsewhere, and Jihadi Justin is getting desperate! That is what is driving this push for censorship! It does not help the cause of the Lieberals that the U.S. with Trump at the helm is going in the opposite direction!
