“It’s going to affect what people are allowed to post on social media sites – all in the name of ‘protecting you,'” warns Conservative MP Andrew Scheer.”With the stroke of a pen, the CRTC can make new rules about what you can post and what you can see online.”

The Canadian government is gearing up to clamp down on freedom of speech online via a bill that will give a regulatory agency carte blanche to censor Internet content, Conservative MP Andrew Scheer is warning.
In a message posted to social media Thursday, Scheer explained how the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC), which regulates radio and TV content, is poised to expand its reach onto the web via Bill C-11, AKA the Online Streaming Act.

“Under this bill they will be able to make new regulations,” Scheer warns. “Regulations don’t have to pass through Parliament. With the stroke of a pen, the CRTC can make new rules about what you can post and what you can see online.”
“It will undermine your ability to create content and have other people see it. It’s going to affect what videos come up in your YouTube stream. It’s going to affect what people are allowed to post on social media sites – all in the name of ‘protecting you.’”
When you break it down, the Online Streaming Act, is actually about censoring free speech, a principle Scheer says used to unite both sides of the political aisle.
“But as the radical left gets increasingly angry and intolerant they’re no longer interested in promoting their ideas or debating yours they just try to stifle anyone who disagrees with them.”
Censorship also has a historical precedent, and is often a sign a government is transforming into a tyrannical regime, Scheer says.
When you go back and look at authoritarian regimes, they always start with attacking freedom of expression and it’s always done in the name of ‘protecting you.’
You go back to the French Revolution, where people were sent to the guillotine for speaking out against the atrocities committed during the revolution.
Look at the Soviet Union, East Germany, even the Berlin Wall was originally called the anti-fascist wall. It wasn’t sold to the citizens of East Berlin as a symbol of oppression designed to keep them inside a broken Communist system. It was sold to them as a protection against an external threat.
When big governments take away rights and liberties they never tell their citizens that it’s to make their life miserable. They always say it’s to protect them, or that it’s for their own good, and that’s exactly what the liberals are doing, as well creating a phantom bogus threat that they need to protect us from – and so they’re going to give themselves massive power to regulate the Internet.
Scheer has issued a call to action for Canadians to speak up against Bill C-11, and urges people to phone and write their respective legislators to “let them know that you are opposed to the government having more power to control what you can see and post online.”
