Not only does @kinsellawarren post links to many articles on his own site, but here’s Postmedia posting a link to his column on Facebook, which brings it into Bill C-18. How is this Postmedia post “pilfering” content that requires payment from Facebook?
Michael Geist -- The Law Bytes Podcast, Episode 159: Fenwick McKelvey on the Rapid Spread of Government TikTok Bans
Government-backed TikTok bans have spread in Canada to all levels of government and even touched universities. @mckelveyf joins the @lawbytespod podcast to to talk about the bans and the state of Canadian policy in addressing privacy and security issues.
Senator David Adams Richard tears apart Bill C-11, warning against censorship and government dictating what counts as Canadian culture. Powerful speech from one of Canada’s most acclaimed authors, having won Governor General’s Award for fiction and non-fiction and Giller Prize.
For those not watching, Canadian Heritage committee now voting on Bill C-11 amendment after amendment. The text of the amendments aren’t public, there is no debate, and no discussion. A betrayal of basic democratic norms that results from @pablorodriguez demand to finish tonight.
I’m the grandson of holocaust survivors who thinks it shouldn’t be too much to ask the Heritage Minister to say something - anything - about officials in his department funding an anti-semite despite multiple warnings. Instead, the Parliamentary Secretary suggests I’m racist.
With only 2 1/2 hours left of Bill C-11 clause-by-clause review before @pablorodriguez expiry on debate kicks in, committee will vote on 100+ amendments tonight without debate, explanation, or public disclosure. Awful violation of democratic norms and a stain on the government.
“This Law Will Be One of Scapegoating All Those Who Do Not Fit Into What Our Bureaucrats Think Canada Should Be”: Bill C-11 is Back with Stunning Rebuke From Senator David Adams Richards
The committee just passed a Liberal amendment to Bill C-10 that has never been made public. Committee is just reading amendment numbers with no information provided. Chair says he cannot given any details. Literally secret law making.
How could user content regulation in Bill C-11 affect the expression of Canadians? Conservative MP @RaquelDancho provides a good explanation of the impact of discoverability regulations on user content. No other country in the world does this.
