#CANADA: Trudeau Proposes Online "Anti-Hate" Bill

[world politics news]

The Justin Trudeau administration is proposing legal changes in an attempt to crack down on online hate speech in Canada.

The new bill — known as Bill C-36 —would make it easier for victims of hate speech to file complaints against those publishing offensive material online. 

Canadians posting hate speech could also be ordered to pay victims up to $20,000, or they could face fines of up to $50,000 if they refuse to stop.

Civil Libertarians and critics of the Trudeau Administration alike have it raised concerns about the bill's effect on the freedom of expression.
