Don't Censor the Internet

EN | FR

The Internet censorship bill not only falls outside of the province’s jurisdiction, but it also directly contradicts Section 36 of the Telecommunications Act,[7] which stipulates that “a Canadian carrier shall not control the content or influence the meaning or purpose of telecommunications carried by it for the public.”

Don’t allow the Quebec government to have a law that promote their own profits, through their online gambling ventures, ahead of a free and open Internet.[8, 9]
