Some New Regulations Concerning The Social Media Giants In Canada

After 2019, four great years are before Justin Trudeau, Canadian government ministers began receiving delegation announcements from the elected prime minister.

With more and more announcements of ministerial delegations posted on the government website, more and more details are what the Liberal minority wanted during Trudeau’s second term.

From the ban on all military assault rifles and the “professional retraining” ban to a complete renewal of the Canadian Coast Guard fleet, the countries used in the past were diverse and numerous.

Detailed instructions from Mr. Trudeau’s term refer to Stephen Gilbo, Canada’s Minister of Cultural Heritage, that in some quarters, is getting more attention than others for how complex (and perhaps difficult for implementation) it is.

“It creates new rules for social media platforms, starting with all platforms that eliminate illegal content, including hate, within 24 hours or subject to heavy fines,” he said.

“This should include other online damages such as extremism, incitement to violence, exploitation of minors, or the creation or spread of terrorist propaganda.”

It’s an exciting idea, but will bigger tech companies play along? Can they? Should they?

The concept of government regulation of social media platforms has become a growing controversy around the world.

Some critics are already calling for “oversight,” while others suspect that this may not be possible.

That is if opponents can still send their messages to China, where the government is actively monitoring content on the Internet, can Canada improve its terms?

Canada, like the United States, seeks to run massive technology platforms like Facebook and Twitter with fines rather than regulations.

It will only tell us if you are already working to combat Canada’s poor online speech, as the connection between tech giants and government officials remains murky and complicated.
