Conservative Party leader Erin O'Toole has released a video on Twitter, attacking the Trudeau government's internet censorship bill.

"This is important for you and your friends to know. The Liberals’ legislation called Bill C-10 would limit your free speech on social media," said the Ontario-based leader.

"Justin Trudeau and the Liberal government are in the process of pushing through legislation that will restrict your freedom of speech on social media."

"Its original purpose was to level the playing field between streaming services like Netflix and Canadian broadcasters," continued O'Toole. "But now, the bill actually gives unelected bureaucrats open-ended authority to censor the internet and regulate what Canadians say on social media."

Trudeau Minister Steven Guilbeault has told federal regulators that the enforcement of his internet censorship bill must adhere to "the government’s vision."

Telling regulators what the internet bill could look like, Guilbeault suggested that Canadians would see more "indigenous storytelling" and content from "racialized community-owned media."

Bill C-10 would regulate the internet and social media in the same way that it regulates national broadcasting.

In a statement provided to the National Post, Peter Menzies, who is the former commissioner of the CRTC, said that this legislation was a "full-blown assault" on free expression and "the foundations of democracy."
