Catching up on – Senate sends heavily amended C-11 back to the Minister – What Big Tech Wants – ‘Bias’ at the BBC

CTV’s Vassy Kapelos interviewed Pablo Rodriguez at CMPA Prime Time.

February 5, 2023

The Senate returned a heavily amended Bill C-11 back to the House of Commons last week.

Heritage Minister Pablo Rodriguez was interviewed at the annual CMPA meeting by CTV’s Vassy Kapelos on which amendments he would accept. Our update on what happened and what’s next is here.


The Liberals are teeing up their third Internet bill, the yet to be tabled Online Safety legislation. Rodriguez released a report on the cross-country roundtable consultation with various community groups.

Buried at the end is the summary of his meeting with the Big Tech companies and what they want if they are going to play ball with new legislation. Our report is here.


The recommended weekend read is Joshua Benton’s review of a report on ‘bias’ at the BBC.
