The Trudeau government has unveiled the largest censorship plan in Canada which aims to silence everyday Canadians on social media platforms - they must be stopped!
Four bills. Falling like dominos. C-11, C-18, C-36 and the Online Harms Act. Each one building on the other, to build a censorship regime whose only comparison is places like North Korea. And it's not like any of the mainstream media are actively opposing them - quite the opposite; they're excited about it. Canada is in trouble, and the watchdogs who are supposed to be on guard are all sleeping.
"Today, Canada has officially become a complete dictator country. Justin Trudeau has officially implemented online censorship to a level that Canada has never seen before and it's creating a lot of panic. A lot of people are very worried as to how this is going to affect their online usage through either YouTube Netflix or whatever it is. So we're going to take a look at everything. This is really scary folks, like total total dictator move."
Having one's feelings hurt is now a criminal matter in the Region of Waterloo.
The European Union says that Russian disinformation is the most active on Twitter. They said that after Elon Musk pushed back on the Digital Services Act (DSA) because it regulates the conduct of large tech platforms. How do they know that Russian disinformation is the most active on Twitter? We saw from the Twitter files that when U.S. politicians asked them to find Russian disinformation, they could not. So where did the E.U. find it? They found it through a "disinformation monitoring start-up" called TrustLab, a partner of the CIA. TrustLab's report does not say that disinformation came from Russia. They do not seem able to prove that. They say that incidents of keywords related to disinformation are high on various platforms in various countries. So, ... EU politicians are spreading disinformation ABOUT disinformation!? Come on guys!

(Dec. 2, 2022) explains TrustLab in his article CIA venture capital arm partners with ex-Googler's startup to "Safeguard the internet"
. Trust Lab's murky partnership with In-Q-Tel suggests a step toward greater governmental oversight of online speech.
The 27 countries who have signed the document are promising to implement "necessary and appropriate measures, including legislation, to address information integrity and platform governance." They will do so in a manner that "complies with international human rights law," including freedom of opinion and expression, the document says. Canada and the Netherlands began working on the initiative a year ago and launched the resulting Global Declaration on Information Integrity Online at the United Nations Wednesday. Signatories include Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, Japan and South Korea, among others. It sets up news media
as a tool to fight disinformation.
