Poilievre condemns Liberals’ online harms bill as assault on free speech

Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre says Justin Trudeau’s looming crackdown on online “hate speech” is a “woke authoritarian” tool used to censor opinions he doesn’t like.

“We will oppose Justin Trudeau’s latest attack on freedom of expression,” Poilievre said at a press conference Wednesday in response to a question from True North’s Andrew Lawton.

Poilievre posed a question of his own.

“What does Justin Trudeau mean when he says the worst hate speech?” he said rhetorically. “He means speech he hates.”

Poilievre proceeded to list numerous examples of things labelled as hate speech by Trudeau, including when former adviser Gerald Butts said that it was hate speech to criticize Trudeau for using the term “peoplekind,” labelling those who made fun of Trudeau as “nazis.”
