Prime Minister ’s government’s controversial internet censorship bill, Bill C-11, might soon become law. It passed the second reading in the Senate and now awaits the third and final reading.

The bill, called “An Act to Amend the Broadcasting Act and to Make Related and Consequential Amendments to other Acts,” passed in a 49-19 vote.

The bill has been heavily criticized because it would give the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) the authority to regulate user-generated content on social media.

A few months ago, former CRTC chair Timothy Denton warned against passing the bill.

Conservatives Senators who voted against the bill criticized the second reading passing of the bill.

The Trudeau government also wants to pass Bill C-18, which would force online platforms to promote certain media outlets that will be given a special designation by the federal government.
