Many Canadians don’t know this is happening especially in the YouTube community. It’s alot to unpack. This will change the future of Media in Canada if it passes and I’m a little bit uncomfortable. If only they didn’t ban the sale of handguns the same week.
“I went to Parliament to save Canadian YouTube (Bill C-11)” on YouTube McCullough
28:29 minutes…This was some of the most important civil liberties testimony and the Canadian media is oblivious.
So are most Canadians and live streamers, bloggers and broadcasters. It’s dense material.
Pretty much 🤷
all J.J. proved is the government has no fucking clue how a platform like YouTube operates. Ok Quebec Media Association, don’t use the platform, find a different app, keep preaching about distinct society after blocking pipelines that would make money.
Half the bill is to promote French. It’s changed a great deal since the first and second reading.
J.J. is like me. Why am I paying for Quebec. You want French language you pay for it.
Since before the fall of Rome, oversized governments that no longer functioned properly, eventually broke down into smaller independent, more workable, decentralized units.— MarkHecht🇨🇦 (@MarkHechtPPCma1) June 7, 2022
Canada is nearing that fate.
And no, it won't be Quebec that leads the way.#cdnpoli
It blows my mind that a tv show that gets less than 250K views per episode could involve multiple people earning six figure paychecks for a season, but a YouTuber doing ~250K views for 20 videos in a row won’t get near that. It’s like TV sponsors are in denial that TV is dying.— EmperorTigerstar (@EmpTigerstar) June 7, 2022
The Canadian government introduced legislation on Tuesday that would require companies like the parents of Google and Facebook to pay the country’s media outlets for allowing links to news content on their platforms. https://t.co/b01WL6Wng7— New York Times World (@nytimesworld) April 5, 2022
90% of Canadians Think it’s Important that Local Media Outlets Survive – Also, Facebook, Google, and the Canadian Government already fund news outlets but we have NO IDEA how much. They must reveal those amounts if we are to hold power to account. https://t.co/21XMjAdSY5— Heidi Legg (@heidilegg) June 4, 2022
The Canadian government introduced the " Online News Act" last week. Similar to a law passed in Australia, it would force companies such as Google and Facebook to pay Canadian news publishers for using their articles online.— alt telecom (@altincca) April 10, 2022

Bill c-18 relates more to digital news than digital entertainment as in the c-11 bill but very similar. Not much has changed from the first and second reading.
I had a good discussion with Adam Sterling but I stumped him. He hasn’t read the bills. Not like he would care. It benefits the legacy media.
I ain’t paying for links. If anything the media outlets should be saying “thank you for the free advertising”. Perhaps that’s the biggest problem with news, it’s more about keeping sponsors happy then telling the truth all the time.
Am I worried? Somewhat. I would be if I was a normal YouTube content maker. I’m not. I do it for fun. Maybe when I get better technology and data I can really get into it. The government has said has no desire to investigate and censor social media… fingers crossed I can fly under the radar.
