#CANADA: Senator Calls Internet Regulation Bill "Orwellian"

[world politics news]

Canada’s controversial Bill C-10 sends the country “down a rabbit hole on internet regulation,” according to Senator Michael MacDonald.

 The Nova Scotia senator, who is the Conservative chair of the Senate communications committee overseeing the bill, goes as far as to call the bill ‘Orwellian,’ reports Blacklock’s Reporter.

Bill C-10 would allow the CRTC regulate privately-viewed YouTube videos as they do with commercial broadcasters, with $15 million fines possible in some cases for violators.

The bill will not be taken up again by the Senate until the fall, because it has adjourned for the summer.
