Canada about to censor internet?

Well, if anyone was going to do it, it would be the Trudeau Liberals. And no, I bear no allegiance to ANY political party, I just believe some are more evil than others.

This article appeared recently on castanet.net, an independent and informative Canadian news and current affairs outlet I think is home-based in Kelowna, B.C. It is a very short article, that I am reproducing in full below. Read it (source here), and see if you’re thinking the same thing I am.

Canada’s minister for public safety says right-wing, white supremacists and neo-Nazi groups are an increasing concern and threat to Canadians.

Ralph Goodale says the groups promote hate, which manifests itself in violent anti-Semitism or in crimes such as the deadly van attack along Yonge Street in Toronto.

He says people involved in such attacks may have acted as individuals but were inspired by what they saw on the Internet.

Goodale says the federal government is working with Internet providers to eliminate the issue.

He says Internet providers have an obligation to make sure they don’t provide a platform for spreading fear and hate.

Goodale made the comments during a speech on national security at the University of Regina.

So, who gets to determine what is, and what is not, ‘fear and hate’? And healthy debate over things our elected leaders find ‘uncomfortable’ to discuss?

Do you trust your federal government and appointees thereof to – call it what it is – censor, control and restrict the information you are able to access over the internet? I for one do NOT, nor have I trusted the codswallop that passes for news provided by corporate television news outlets since November 22, 1963. 

This story concerns me, and if you value a so-called free press, it might just concern you too.

    This is happening all over the world. There are discussion and attempt, some successful to censor the internet. Personally, I very much dislike censorship of any kind. Live and let live is more my approach all the while educating people so they know what choices and consequences are available. I share your concerns!
