Bill C-10 passed by liberals to regulate the streaming service
November 2020, Heritage Minister Steven Guilbeault, who introduced Bill C-10 and this bill has passed in todays morning. This is actually aims to regulate programming distributed by media streaming services and social platforms like Facebook and YouTube, a measure that critics warn could infringe on individual speech. Moreover, is meant to subject tech giants to the same requirements as traditional broadcasters — effectively compelling companies like Netflix Inc. and TikTok Inc. to finance and promote Canadian content.
From yesterday, I got number of tweets regarding this bill and how to overcome this restriction. Most of the Canadians tweets to use a VPN and get rid of this. Is this an actual solution of it?
@billjcarlos #1 I don't think there are many Canadians here so you probably won't get many replies. #2 it's going to die in the Senate anyway so forget about it. I'm really surprised at the lengths the Libs, NDP and Greens went to ramrod this through despite all the pushback, and the Cons were the voice of reason for once in their lives.
