Conservative Shadow Minister of Finance Pierre Poilievre took aim at Trudeau's top censor Steven Guilbeault, after the heritage minister admitted to using "unclear" language after suggesting that social media users with large followings would be subject to regulation under Bill-C-10.

During an interview with CTV's Evan Solomon, Guilbeault said that he "should have been more precise," and clarified that people who use social media would "never be considered as broadcasters and will not be subject to the obligations or regulations within the Broadcasting Act."

In response to Guilbeault's statements, Poilievre tweeted that the minister should "control what he says rather than what others say."

"So the minister who claims he needs to censor online misinformation now admits that he is spreading misinformation," Poilievre added.
