Former CRTC commissioner compares Liberal plan to censor internet to China, Russia
Former CRTC commissioner Timothy Denton compared Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's plan to censor the internet to authoritarian policies pursued by China and Russia. "We're not living in a very liberal era when it comes to speech. We're living in an era that has many anxieties verging on hysteria about the dangers of unfettered discussion. There seems to be very little belief on the part of recent college graduates in the ability of society to find for itself reasonable accommodations with dissent," said Denton.
