Report Reveals Secret Concerns About Trudeau Government Interfering In Media

Blacklocks Reporter finds government memo that “cautions against federal meddling in media under the guise of combating fake news.”

On the day that the Trudeau government releases their so-called election ‘security’ plan, Blacklocks Reporter has revealed a once-secret department of industry memo showing concerns about the Trudeau government “meddling in media,” using the fight against ‘fake news’ as the excuse.

Here’s a key excerpt:

“The memo said any federal action against fake news could have consequences for free speech, and that remedies were already found in the private sector. “It is important that we enable private sector leadership, innovation governance approaches and new business models to flourish,” wrote staff.

“Policies that constrain the flow of data, free speech, consumer choice or the rights of businesses to innovate online would impede economic potential,” said Advice.”

The report also notes “Surveillance of digital media would coincide with cabinet’s promised $595 million bail-out fund for newspapers. Cabinet in its November 21 Fall Economic Statement proposed to award subsidies to publishers deemed reliable. No criteria have been disclosed to date.”

This is a serious concern. The Trudeau government is clearly using the worldwide discourse on ‘fake news’ as an excuse to impose federal government power over social media and free speech in order to improve their election prospects.

It’s anti-democratic, and it’s disturbing.

Trudeau has an agreement in place with Facebook to monitor Canadians. He also wants the CRTC to control internet content. He has already tried by demanding our Banks provide access to our accounts and entire financial lives without search warrants. Had he been successful, we could easily expect him to ban cash as it isn’t traceable.

Trudeau shows he is intent on being a tyrannical controlling dictator, full of hatred for Canada and Canadians.

It is said, that in Democracies, “People get the Government that they deserve”. Sadly those from Ontario east get to foist “their” type of Government on the rest of Canada. The most effective way to do that is with a corrupt MSM. Trudeau will make them eventually reliant on the Government teat. This will make them utterly subservient to them and the brainwashing will continue and grow.

No journalist I have any respect for endorses the Lieberals in general or Turdo in particular. If you think “fake news” is amusing, just consider Turdo’s fake eyebrows. Wonder if he keeps a spare pair of ducky socks rolled up in his Jockey shorts? I guess Trump and Bolton would know.

Trudeau just keeps on proving why he should never had been elected PM. He is so out of touch with reality that he just doesn’t understand the true meaning of free speech. And worse yet he shows he doesn’t want to even care at all. Otherwise he wouldn’t have agreed to this harebrained idea of free speech being speech that can be controlled, censored, and deleted by government decree. And he wouldn’t have even considered buying the media’s silence with outrageous and open bribery, if he could have given any thought to the meaning of free speech. But Trudeau is… Read more »
