Canadian Heritage  Mr. Speaker, it is pathetic to see my hon. colleague deliberately misleading the House and Canadians, because he knows full well that subsection 2(3) of the Broadcasting Act reads as follows: This Act shall be construed and applied in a manner that is consistent with the freedo

Canadian Heritage  Mr. Speaker, if the Conservative Party members truly cared about freedom of speech, then it would let our democracy continue its work freely. Again, this bill is not about what anyone can or cannot post online. Freedom of speech is not negotiable for our government. It is expli

Canadian Heritage  Mr. Speaker, we have been saying this from the beginning, and confirmed it last night. Bill C-10 is about fairness, not about what we can or cannot post online. Bill C-10 does not remove anything from Canadians. What it would do is give them more opportunities to meet with their

Canadian Heritage  Mr. Speaker, this issue has nothing to do with free speech. This has nothing to do with what Canadians do online. This have everything to do with what web giants are not doing, which is investing in Canadian artists, Canadian musicians and Canadian culture. Why is the Conservati
