Techdirt Podcast Episode 296: Internet Policy & The Canadian Election

from the to-the-north dept

Canada is barreling towards a federal election, and if recent legislative proposals are any indication, the outcome will have huge implications for the future of the internet in the country. Between the recent Bill C-10 and the proposed online harms legislation (among other things), it’s clear that plenty of Canadian politicians want to make drastic and draconian changes to how the internet is regulated. This week, I join Mike on the podcast along with Matt Hatfield, the Campaigns Director of OpenMedia (something like Canada’s version of the EFF), to discuss the Canadian election and what it means for a variety of important internet policy issues.
