Rex is right on the money. When he speaks, people should listen.

Rex Murphy: Now Trudeau's Liberals are journalism instructors?


Guilbeault announced this week the release of a guide by an international working group, led by Canada, intended to promote diversity of content online. Among the guide’s principles is that “Ethical journalistic standards should be upheld and encouraged.”

Is this some large, grim joke? Is the heritage ministry now a journalism school? How did “heritage,” which by all standard meaning deals with preserving and elucidating stuff that has already happened, and in most cases long ago, mutate into umpire and judge of the daily information of the present?

The guide is ridiculously and insultingly prescriptive as it “aims to guide actions and measures that foster greater exposure to diverse cultural content, information and news online.” And who determines what constitutes that vague and contentious concept of “diverse cultural content?” Steven Guilbeault? The Canadian government?

And should you see “diverse cultural content” as a phrase inviting whatever meaning the government wishes to put on it, what about this twaddle: “A diverse, pluralistic, healthy and sustainable media ecosystem … should be fostered.”

The phrase itself is a warning. Whenever you see “ecosystem” in a government document that isn’t about trees, ants or David Attenborough chatting up a penguin, you know you’re being taken for a ride.

snip

Alarming, because a government that thinks its judgment is superior to the House of Commons, of which it is itself only a part, and which takes the Speaker of the House to court, will surely not decline to injure or contain the mere “free press.” The trek from issuing guidelines to issuing legislation and enforcement is neither long nor rocky.

Government placing its heavy foot in what news is and should be, and preparing to set the standards against which news must be measured, is more than a useful hint as to what is meant by that shudder-inducing phrase “building back better.”

A footnote. The COVID regime has given governments the strongest taste of full control they have had since war time. Odd, how frequently a taste becomes a diet.

There are no coincidences in Justin Trudeau's all out assault on the rights and freedoms our forefathers gave their lives for.

A dictatorial quest for unbridled power has Justin drunk thinking of the possibilities of a submissive, defenseless electorate.

No Coincidence the Liberals are Trying to Grab Guns While Taking Away Free Speech


One of the best arguments that firearm rights in Canada are absolutely fundamental freedoms and the government knows it, is the lockstep timing of the Liberals’ newest attacks on Canadian gun owners (Bill C-21) paired with their proposal for new legislation to undermine free speech rights (Bill C-36).

Governments don’t push out legislation in a random fashion, with each new bill having nothing to do with one another, rather everything proposed and passed around the same time tends to feed into the same immediate agenda. Clearly, the Liberals, and their NDP allies, recent agenda since the beginning of 2020, has been the consolidation of power over the Canadian public.

snip

It should also be noted that recently even a City News-created documentary pointed out that none of the regulations in C-21 would help with curbing gun smuggling or gang violence in any significant way. Especially since C-22, passed right after C-21, did away with many mandatory minimum sentences for gun-related crimes.

Now pair C-21 up with the latest anti-free speech legislation proposed just back on June 23, Bill C-36 which is such draconian “hate speech” legislation it would allow anonymous complaints of hate speech to cause someone to be hauled in front of the Human Rights Commission. That same anonymous person can even report you on the suspicion that they fear you may commit “hate speech” in the future and can place ridiculous restrictions on your behaviour, movement, and force you to submit to random drug tests.

snip

We are seeing a full assault on Canadians rights and freedoms and the government seems to know that undermining firearms rights just before hitting Canadians with authoritarian speech regulations is a necessary step in their centralization of powers in the federal government.


Just as the government has turned firearms ownership from what was an unquestionable freedom Canadians possessed more than a decade ago into a government-granted privilege, they are now doing the same to speech. Yes, you can still own guns and still speak freely, just as long as it doesn’t upset Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Liberals’ left-wing sensibilities.

snip

Over the last 40 years, we've seen an increasing disregard on behalf of the government when it comes to fundamental rights. Whether it's property rights, free speech, or the completely reasonable idea that you can defend yourself from violent attacks, the government seems to put a significant amount of effort into convincing people they shouldn't have any rights at all. Unfortunately, many Canadians now agree with the government on this topic.

It would be proactive for those advocating against the ongoing Liberal gun-grabbing and strict regulations to make the well-evidenced case that firearms rights and free speech rights are connected, and even those Canadians who aren’t firearms owners have a stake in upholding the right to gun ownership in Canada.

If one fundamental freedom goes then the others will surely follow.

#TrudeauDictatorship trends after his Heritage Minister said tweets were 'undermining democracy'

62 percent of Canadians fear federal regulation of the internet will curb lawful speech, according to a July 5 survey by the Canadian Internet Registration Authority.



Twitter posts are “undermining Canada’s democracy,” said Canada’s Heritage Minister Steven Guilbeault in a briefing note, and now #TrudeauDictatorship is trending on the social media platform.

Mike Campbell wrote:A major blow to the anti-free speech crowd pushing Bill C-10 and Bill C-36

“In a free and democratic society, the exchange and expression of diverse and often controversial or unpopular ideas may cause discomfort. It is, in a sense, the price we pay for our freedom.” Once “governments begin to argue that the expression of some ideas are less valuable than others, we find ourselves on dangerous ground.”

So now we learn that Guilbeault, Trudeau's censorship czar, and taxer of your Netflix account, owes a bucket of money for taxes that he failed to submit to Revenu Québec.

Any wonder he wanted to censor the internet before the election, so that we wouldn't find out that he's a disgraceful scofflaw?
