> Recommendation 73: We recommend that to promote the discoverability of Canadian news
content, the CRTC impose the following requirements, as appropriate, on media aggregation
and media sharing undertakings:
• links to the websites of Canadian sources of accurate, trusted, and reliable sources of
news with a view to ensuring a diversity of voices; and
• prominence rules to ensure visibility and access to such sources of news.

a public institution that is fully financed with public funds, is neutral regarding the producer, and will
support audiovisual entertainment content on any screen or platform.

No, it's really not
#yalereport

> There are two approaches to addressing piracy: first, copyright reform and, second, prohibiting unlawful actions that facilitate the reception of programs from Internet sites.

In other words it's not the actual piracy they want to prevent, it's enabling technology. Like FLOSS.

> australia as example

yeah

> With respect to the second approach, sections 9 and 10 of the Radiocommunication Act currently make it an offence to decode, retransmit, and operate devices, equipment, or components to receive an unlawfully decrypted subscription program. These provisions should be moved to the
broadcasting Act and expanded to include all forms of media content, whether received through satellites or through
the Internet.
>. Consequential amendments should also be made to ensure proper enforcement of these
provisions.

UGH, terrible, just terrible #canada

are currently two proposals for a statutory duty of care regime for social media companies: the first
focuses on the protection of young people, while the second is much broader and would “apply to
companies that allow users to share or discover user-generated content or interact with each other
online.” 227

this is what they want to do here. #fediverse - this is talking about you #yalereport

The worst thing is... these streaming services are *in and of themselves harmful*

even if the bill is successful at this...it's still a net loss for canada if we get a 'working' DRM-infested streaming site

Trudeau is even abandoning the #netneutrality aspects of C-10, which are one of the few aspects of the #yalereport worth keeping. And interestingly...the CPC are the ones who are in favour of it

"Net Neutrality is not a conservative or liberal issue...it's not even a big business vs consumer issue. 99% of big businesses would oppose ending net neutrality. The only people who had supported ending Net Neutrality are the executives at Bell and Rogers....now that includes the Trudeau Liberals."

I would add music canada/RIAA/MPAA to that ...

> Third, Guilbeault has regularly indicated that he plans to introduce “online harms” legislation in the coming weeks that will include website blocking, mandated takedowns, and the creation of a new social media regulator. The ease with which a government minister labels criticism and public dissent as misinformation for political gain is deeply troubling given that the same minister is planning extensive new speech and Internet regulations.

The Trudeau government needs to be stopped. This means the NDP need to put pressure on Jagmeet Singh to either resign or STOP this madness. We are crossing the rubicon here.
