The Liberal government’s controversial internet regulation bill, C-11, has become law with “independent” senators ultimately voting in favour of it yesterday. When it comes into effect, the CRTC will have control over what content social media companies and online streaming platforms show to users, though the regulations are still yet to be worked out. True North’s Andrew Lawton says the importance of this can’t be understated as C-11 signals the death of the open internet.
Also, True North founder and editor-in-chief Candice Malcom takes a break from her much-deserved maternity leave for a wide-ranging conversation about the changing tides of media and the future of True North.
