The CRTC is about to be put in charge of every video, meme, and podcast we upload to the Internet. Censoring videos with language that doesn’t fit the CRTC’s broadcasting standards? Limiting our timelines to display content from our Canadian friends? Imposing CanCon content requirements on app stores and video games? Taxing YouTube channels to fund traditional media?
All of that and more is now possible, after the government’s bait and switch removed safeguards that exempted user-generated content from Broadcast Act Amendment Bill C-10 at the very last minute.
The government lied to us about this bill. Exempting our user content was a key part of C-10’s limitations, that helped get it through parliamentary readings and committee without more dissent. Removing that exception makes C-10 the most breathtaking power grab over online speech we’ve ever seen in Canada.
But there’s still time to stop this. Parliament has one final vote to decide if Bill C-10 becomes law. Tell your MP this kind of broad government censorship power is unacceptable – they MUST vote no to Bill C-10!

Charter Statement: Bill C-10: An Act to amend the Broadcasting Act and to make consequential amendments to other Acts
Tabled in the House of Commons, November 18, 2020
This is the standard way they justify their Charter of Rights and Freedoms violations and wriggle around the Charter. The federal government did the same thing last year with their COVID bills.
I would conclude that part of the reason for this bill–just on the surface (see the newswire.ca release above)–is to allow for greater control by the Canadian government over media in order to direct and support social engineering efforts–which has been the pattern of most governments for decades.
“Cultural content” traditionally, has included messages that tend to destabilize traditional values regarding family life. Also no doubt there will be messages that celebrate greater government and corporate control over our bodies through dictatorial measures and “vaccine” products (for example, see the pandemic documentary (fictionalized exercise) featuring Dr. Tam from 2010: Outbreak: Anatomy of a Plague) so I think there could be many potential insertions of new dogma and propaganda to cover for corporate toxicity, scientific dictatorship and bio-surveillance.
There have been some very good Canadian fictional films made over the last 60 years, for example, but even many of them have tended to emphasize tragic and dysfunctional situations (abuse for example).
Some of our favourite music has tended to be nihilistic, even involving predictive programming (an obvious example of this being the lyrics of Leonard Cohen). This hasn’t been much different in other countries from what I have seen.
So-called cultural marxist (Frankfurt School) attacks on family, religion and cultural identity have been encouraged for many decades in publicly funded universities also–even under nominally “right-wing” Cold War governments–in order to ultimately build a global, toxified, transhuman, Brave New World surveillance slave state.
