Stop Trudeau’s Censorship Bill! Contact your Canadian Senators NOW!.

(LifeSiteNews) – The world’s richest man has responded to a message from a pro-freedom Canadian group about Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s internet censorship bill.  

Elon Musk, who officially became Twitter’s new owner last week, replied to a tweet from “Canada Proud” regarding Trudeau’s online censorship legislation. 

“Hey (Elon Musk), now that you own Twitter, will you help fight back against Trudeau’s online censorship bill C-11,” Canada Proud asked last Friday.  

Musk replied directly that Bill C-11 was news to him.  

“First I’ve heard,” he tweeted back.  

Canada Proud bills itself on its website as a “grassroots group of Canadians working to defeat Justin Trudeau. As prime minister, Trudeau has repeatedly let our country down.” 

“Canada Proud is using the power of social media to hold Trudeau and his Liberals accountable. Millions of Canadians see our content each week,” it declares.  

On Saturday, in response to media reports about Musk’s response to their question, the group tweeted, “Trudeau is making new enemies every day.” 

Musk’s $44 billion purchase of Twitter has caused many left-leaning users to say they will leave the platform for good.  

On Friday, Musk tweeted, “Twitter will be forming a content moderation council with widely diverse viewpoints. No major content decisions or account reinstatements will happen before that council convenes.” 

Since taking over Twitter, Musk has been flooded with messages from many groups and individuals alerting him to political issues, or instances of perceived unfair treatment on his platform.

Trudeau’s much-maligned internet censorship Bill C-11 came one step closer to becoming law after passing second reading in Canada’s Senate last Tuesday.  

The bill, titled, An Act to Amend the Broadcasting Act and to Make Related and Consequential Amendments to other Acts will now proceed to the third reading and final reading.  

Critics have longed warned that Bill C-11 will stifle free speech online.  

Bill C-11 is accompanied by another piece of pending legislation, Bill C-18. Together these laws would regulate the internet by forcing Big Tech companies to promoted selected media outlets based on a special designation given by the federal government. 

Even Big Tech giants YouTube and Apple – who both have a history of censorship – recently urged Canada’s senate to stall the passing of the bill.
