3.09.30 - “A re-elected Liberal government will […] [i]ntroduce legislation within its first 100 days to combat serious forms of harmful online content, specifically hate speech, terrorist content, content that incites violence, child sexual abuse material and the non-consensual distribution of intimate images. This would make sure that social media platforms and other online services are held accountable for the content that they host. Our legislation will recognize the importance of freedom of expression for all Canadians and will take a balanced and targeted approach to tackle extreme and harmful speech.”
No bills were passed in the first 100 days. In addition, Bill C-270 was not a priority. It did not receive first reading until April 28, 2022.
