The Trudeau government is trying once again to censor the internet and put the social media feeds of Canadians in the hands of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC).

Our federal politicians are currently debating Bill C-11, also called the Online Streaming Act. The bill is nearly identical to the controversial Bill C-10, which almost became law last year but died when Trudeau called an unnecessary election.

The aim of Bill C-11 is to put online content under the same restrictions as television and radio content, so that, according to the bill itself, it can “serve the needs and interests of all Canadians, including Canadians from racialized communities and Canadians of diverse ethnocultural backgrounds, socio-economic statuses, abilities and disabilities, sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, and ages”.

But this language isn’t the only concern with Bill C-11. Though the bill claims to exempt social media posts from regulation, Section 4.2 of the bill gives the CRTC the power to regulate social media posts if they “directly or indirectly generate revenue”. This would mean that the social media pages of most people and organizations with an online presence- including CitizenGO’s - could be controlled and hidden if the government feels it does not serve the needs of Canadians of all sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions.

Bill C-11 opens the door for a level of internet censorship never before seen in this country. The groups that have the most to lose from this are those who are vocal against the Trudeau government’s pro-abortion, pro-euthanasia, and pro-gender ideology agenda.

Please stand for a free internet and sign this petition today in opposition to Bill C-11! Canadian social media users should decide how our online content spreads, not regulatory agencies like the CRTC. Signing this petition will send an email to Canadian Heritage Minister Pablo Rodriguez and our federal party leaders saying that you are opposed to Bill C-11.

Don't Allow Bill C-11 To Censor Our Internet

Dear Canadian Heritage Minister Pablo Rodriguez and Federal Party Leaders,

I am opposed to the internet censorship proposed by Bill C-11, The Online Streaming Act.

Giving the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission control over any content that “directly or indirectly generates revenue” gives them far too much control over the media and messages Canadians consume online, and threatens to silence groups that speak out against the Trudeau government’s pro-abortion, pro-euthanasia, and pro-gender ideology agenda.

Bill C-11 opens the door for a level of internet censorship never before seen in this country. Canadian social media users should decide how our online content spreads, not regulatory agencies like the CRTC. 

For these reasons, I demand you put an end to Bill C-11.
