DISTURBING: Trudeau Threatening Strict Regulations On Facebook

Justin Trudeau has consistently shown an opposition to freedom of speech and freedom of expression, and it’s no coincidence that he’s threatening to “regulate” Facebook – one of the social networks where opposition to his government is growing the fastest.

A Toronto Star report reveals that a source with “direct knowledge” of a meeting between Justin Trudeau and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg says Trudeau is threatening stricter regulation of Facebook if they don’t “stop the spread of misleading information on their platform.”

Here’s a key section of that report:

“As Canadian political parties prepare for the 2019 federal election, the source said Trudeau suggested Ottawa could intervene if Facebook doesn’t adequately address the issues. The source described the conversation as “constructive.” Trudeau’s comments came during a meeting with Sandberg at the Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation forum in Vietnam last November. According to the source, Trudeau was particularly concerned about Facebook identifying the origin of partisan “news” posts or advertisements. Neither the Prime Minister’s Office nor Facebook would discuss the specifics of that meeting.”

This is both disturbing and massively hypocritical.

It’s hypocritical because Justin Trudeau’s close friend and top advisor Gerald Butts just called Trudeau’s critics ‘Nazis,’ and his government lies and spreads misleading information to Canadians on a daily basis.

It’s disturbing because we know that what Trudeau really wants is to eliminate info that is opposed to his worldview. He wants to move towards criminalizing opposition to him and his Liberal government, and use the power of the state to banish information he dislikes from social media platforms.

Additionally, while the Trudeau government claims to be worried about outside powers interfering with our election through Facebook and Twitter in 2019, they have no complaints about the massive amount of money spent by Tides (funded in part by George Soros), on anti-Conservative campaigns in the 2015 federal election.

Trudeau’s disloyalty to our nation means he has no problem with foreign interference when it benefits him, and is only concerned when he thinks it will hurt him.

Dictatorial turn

As we can see, the longer the Trudeau government is in power, the more dictatorial they become. Until they are defeated, they won’t stop trying to expand the power of government, restrict individual freedom, and suppress dissent. That’s why it’s more important than ever for all of us to keep speaking out, keep spreading the truth, and keep making sure that this government isn’t allowed to conceal their dangerous agenda.

This man is becoming more & more of a dictator as time goes on, all should be worried as little by little our freedoms are being eroded.
If he can’t deal with the comments & concerns expressed on Facebook , there is a familiar saying ” if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen” & we will gladly show you the door

Not true. I left FaceBook after being censored over the Orlando Gay Club Shootings. A friend of mine who trained with SWAT teams suggested the injured and dead at the club were probably shot by the Police. I mentioned this on FaceBook and a number of those reading the post slagged me for not supporting the police. In support of my statements I cross-posted a column from the Global Research Site, linked on FaceBook, written by Judge Napolitano who discussed the FBI debriefing of the Orlando Police, who stated that some of their officers involved had indeed shot innocent bystanders… Read more »

Yes it is true. I’ve been blockedc3 times and it was just to tell that something was a false propaganda and lies made by leftist globalists. These evil establishment control everything. Not only Facebook google, youtube, twitter have censor the free speach since a moment it become worst since France has elected the fake president Macron…also an other one who is removing freedom to speach to people. Left is dictatorship people have to see the truth.

Your article had some key points to it, as the Charter of Rights is very simplest in definition of Freedom of Speech. I shudder when someone comments in coarse language and fires their comments from the hip without really thinking through what their endeavoring to say. Face Book has given people a opportunity to voice their opinion and that has been very positive. The General public in Canada is now no different that our U.S. counterparts, that the Media has lost the trust of the citizens, So Facebook has become a messaging tool to voice concern over issues that don’t… Read more »

our dear leader (dictator) truduh! is a very talented man (?) he can suck and blow at the same time… why does he have a foundation? why did outside sources (soros ?) donate over 535 million in 2016? what do they want in return? why the big donation (millions) to the clinton foundation after winning the election? did the clinton team come up and help truduh! win?

I guess his admiration for Chinas’ style of government just continues to shine through. The Left just laps his BS up without any critical thought whatsoever. The hypocrisy from him and the willful stupidity from his groupies is mindboggling. Is it just me or has the Left abandoned its connection to reality. I can look at past conservative as well as liberal figures and be critical of either, some were alright and some on both sides stunk. The HC has become a dog and pony show with the Liberals having reduced themselves to rubber stamps and barking seals. None even… Read more »

I am all for trying to limit hostile foreign powers from interfering, but this sounds not good. I have found a lot of progressives and yes unfortunately some conservatives too but more the former seem to be intolerant of those with different views. Besides if worried about Russian interference, the Conservatives under Harper were quite anti-Putin so I really doubt Russia has any gains of intervening to help them. Maybe to help Trump who did have a lot of shady business dealings in Russia, but not Scheer who has been a strong opponent of Putin. Now with how cozy Trudeau… Read more »

… good point but Harper is no longer the leader. I’m expecting Scheer much more likely to go full Trump “mini me” than even Harper was willing to kiss Dubya’s ass, or Mulroney was keen to accept envelopes full of cash. He’s already shown support for a formal announcement of recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and, that, like Harper, he’s willing to lie everytime his lips are moving if it will give him any potential political advantage. Scheer is greasy. I don’t trust him one little bit. Trudeau, on the other hand? I didn’t vote Liberal in the… Read more »

What is most disturbing is that Trudeau purports to be the arbiter of what constitutes ‘fake news’. For me, the rampant islamophobia (fake word) the liberals seek to address via M103 (fake crisis) is a harbinger of future censorship. Leaders of free countries have no business throttling public or private diaologue on any matter. This was Hitler’s tactic, also Stalin, also N.Korea today.

This is a website you have to bookmark and follow closely. Vivian Krause has verifiable proof of massive interference in Canadian resources and of clearly illegal support of gangs who hide behind their fake environmental masks. Look for Dogwood Initiative and discover how they interfered in the last election to get Trudeau elected. http://business.financialpost.com/tag/vivian-krause No wonder Trudeau wants to control the media. He is giving $75 million to Canadian media in order to control their websites and to use them to watch our participation. Take a close look at the recent M-103 Committee “Recommendations” . In addition to banning “Islamophobia”… Read more »

Canadians had better wake up because the threat is real from this bunch. Can anyone not see now the goal of these two is to move to a one party government. He’s already refusing to debate in parliament and pushing to control everyone and everything. Between Trudeau and Butts the damage already done to Canada is horrendous, and may already be permanent. It’s absolutely sickening to see his backbenchers sitting on their hands nodding their heads while he runs roughshod over Canadians. They have the ability to end this but won’t. Wake up Canada, take this seriously, and please exercise… Read more »

Remember folks, when asked at a women’s only forum, early in his term, what world leader he admired most?
And he said “The China dictatorship that turned their economy around on a dime”.
Then there’s the dictatorship of the Castros in Cuba. The Trudeau family and the Castro family have been close friends for decades.
Nobody should doubt Trudeau’s dream to be a dictator. He isn’t officially one, but he might as well be. Actions speak for themselves.
Also, being a “Global citizen” lines him up for a dictator role in the one world order.

This from a Government site: ***my notes added for clarification??? (Just figured it out…..the site said ‘for new immigrants’, guess that why it may not apply to us who have been here for years. …For new immigrants Get to know Canada Human rights In Canada, federal and provincial or territorial laws protect the: freedom to express your beliefs and opinions (including through free press), * ** free press to include uncensored social media *** including those that challenge actions of current Government. ( no jobs for liberals parliament unless believe pro abortion!) Enough said.

The Charter of Rights and Freedoms applies for all Canadian citizens.

There are plenty of anti-abortion types working in parliament. We call them “Conservative MPs”.

I hope I didn’t misinterpret what you were saying; the broken English was a bit hard to decipher. How long have you lived in Canada?
