Mr. Speaker, that is incredible and I feel like laughing when I listen to the heritage minister.
He is rejecting the advice of all the experts in the country who have spoken out since the start of the week. He is attempting to defend the indefensible. Let us be clear, Bill C-10 does not regulate copyright, nor does it ensure that web giants pay their due and it does not revisit the role of CBC/Radio-Canada.
With the surprise amendments he made to Bill C-10 last week without warning, he is giving the CRTC more power by allowing it to censor everyday social media users. That is the reality.
Why is the minister bent on heading in this direction and why is he not listening to the experts once and for all?
