Bambi has several posts on Bill C-36, as shown further below.
Today, more than ever, she says no to the so-called “Anti–Hate” Bill C-36!
Instead of listening to its population (working-class Canadians on the streets across the country and engaging in a meaningful conversation with them to solve the crisis), our ruling politicians are in a rush to revive their online censorship bill.
Since when increased authoritarianism is a wise and unifying strategy in a national crisis like that? Since when will it ensure a long-term brighter future for a country?
Our government in power has the most beautiful name in the world: Liberal? Why are they becoming that controlling (i.e., illiberal) in their governance and rapport with the citizens they serve?
We already have criminal laws in our country? Why is this not enough anymore all of a sudden?
Indeed, in an earlier post, Bambi expressed the following:
“As a reminder, under Bill 36 (if the Senate passes it), citizens can be fined up $50,000 and eventually silenced. Who would be defining hate and deciding on it? Our federal bureaucrats? Wouldn’t that be arbitrary? How fair is that? How logical? How liberal?
Even Lebanon’s Hezbollah did not come up with such bills (yet) to crack down on “online collaboration with the (Israeli) enemy“… Let’s hope our government will not give them such ideas.
Bambi believes that a (truly) liberal approach remains the healthiest approach when it comes to (online) freedom of expression. Let people remain free to express themselves, except for calling for violence or defamation.
Luckily, we already have laws to address the above as well as all the other criminal activities stated to justify this new legal framework on “online hate speech” (i.e., child sexual exploitation, non-consensual sharing of intimate images, incitement to violence, and terrorism).
Mr. Trudeau et al., Bambi is against your proposed Bill 36 as well as your proposed plan to regulate or monitor social-media content. She is saying so, even if she is not on social media herself. She thinks so, even if she has been the target of an online censorship campaign because of her blog”.
To conclude this post now, the same song comes to Bambi’s mind to say no to Bill C-36 and, thus, a big NO to citizens’ (and deer’s) online censorship in Canada. Yes, this melody is again Ms. Nana Mouskouri’s song for liberty. Perhaps it is worth listening to, once again, as a reminder of the value of liberty, which seems to be in danger in our beautiful Canada… How sad!
