Canada’s far-left government is pushing to further crack down on dissenters by moving to begin regulating and censoring podcasts.
Under the new measures being promoted by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his cabinet, authorities will also be able to track those who subscribe to podcasts.
The plan is the latest tactic seeking to eliminate wrongthink from the nation’s taxpaying population.
In the summer, Canada’s Bill C-18, the Online News Act, became law and placed restrictions on news in the country.
Bill C-18 limits online news to corporate media outlets by placing a price on links to content, a so-called “link tax,” to reduce the reach of independent sources.
Trudeau also previously froze the bank accounts of protesting truckers in Canada.
The World Economic Forum-tied leader’s government declared that being “pro-Trump” was a factor they would use to freeze accounts.
“The CRTC now wants to regulate podcasts,” said the Toronto Sun’s Brian Lilley.
“Here is my simple message to them. Go to hell.”
Canadian clinical psychologist Jordan Paterson, a popular international podcaster, responded to the recent move on Twitter/X.
“Not a f**king chance,” Peterson said.
“You censorial Scumrat.”
