Liberals reveal they will regulate social media content if re-elected

“To help stop the proliferation of violent extremism online, we will move forward with new regulations for social media platforms starting with a requirement that all platforms remove illegal content, including hate speech, within 24 hours or face significant financial penalties,” the Liberal response said.

“This will also include other online harms such as radicalization, incitement to violence, exploitation of children or creation or distribution of terrorist propaganda.”

The Conservatives, the Greens, and the NDP all told the Ukrainian Canadian Congress that they would not create additional internet regulations.

Internet censorship and regulation has been floated by the Trudeau government since first being elected in 2015.
