Guilbeault's nightmare interview happened because he cannot admit the real reason for Bill C-10

It is not that Guilbeault did not have any answers, its that he didn’t have any answers that could be revealed to the public.

Steven Guilbeault managed to make Patty Hajdu look competent.

Yes, I know you are thinking that is impossible. But just watch this absolute nightmare of an interview:

Yet, while Hajdu seems to be a garden variety incompetent individual in a position that simply exceeds her abilities, Guilbeault’s perceived incompetence and inability is really about being unable to admit what Bill C-10 is all about.

It is not that Guilbeault did not have any answers, its that he didn’t have any answers that could be revealed to the public.

Notice how he trips up repeatedly when asked – if the exemption for individual user posts was not important or needed as Guilbeault claimed – why was it included in the first place, and why did he even use it as a selling point originally to dispel concern?

The answer – if Guilbeault was being honest – is that he has been playing a game of bait-and-switch with the legislation in order to try and fool people.

Remember, when this was first revealed, Guilbeault and the Liberals backtracked, denied they would be using government power to regulate individual users and content outside the social networks.

The outrage died down for a while.

Then, they introduced the legislation, with many realizing that there would in fact be state-regulation and control over nearly all internet content – including individual user content.

So, they included an exemption, which of course caused the outrage to die down.

Then, they took that exemption out, leading to a new cycle of outrage.

Expect to see some sort of 'concession' or an empty gesture that makes it appears the Liberals are listening to the outrage, while still pushing forward with C-10 and giving the government massive power over the internet and our free expression on it.

What matters is not each individual move, but the direction of those moves.

And what is the direction that Guilbeault, Trudeau, and the Liberals are moving in?

Giving the government the power to silence any website, block any video or podcast at the whim of a bureaucracy controlled by politicians.

It is that simple. And I can say it is that simple because that is what the legislation will empower the government to do.

Remember, when a politician claims they are doing something for any reason, look at what they are doing, not what they say. The action, not the words, are what matters.

So, while Guilbeault may seem incompetent, the real issue is that he must keep his real agenda hidden and would rather look like an idiot than admit his real agenda.
