Letter to the editor re: Bill C-11 is not who we are

Before Stephen Harper became Prime Minister, he said, “Human rights commissions, as they are evolving, are an attack on our fundamental freedoms and the basic existence of a democratic society. It is in fact totalitarianism.”

Bill C-10 was introduced by the Liberal government on November 3, 2020 with the purpose of revising the Broadcasting Act. Although it passed the House of Commons, it fell short in the Senate when parliament was dissolved before the last election. Since that time, it has been re-introduced as Bill C-11 or, The Online Streaming Act.

In a world of internet video and digital media, Bill C-11 allows the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission to police what they call user-generated content. This means that every online post you make will be regulated and censored based on what the government feels is within the needs and interests of Canadians. The Liberal vision of Canada is not who we are! Freedom and equality for all is not a Liberal-owned accomplishment!

Recently, I was censored for suggesting that our country needs a break from Conservatism and Liberalism; that we need policies in place that truly reflect the best interests of Canadians and Canada. A political party that is not afraid to make change, but one that does not run wild with nonsensical Liberal rubbish. Maybe soon we are going to see a centralist government opposition. All of this looking left and right is making me dizzy!
