Canada to Make Online Hate Speech a Crime Punishable Fine

According to news, it has been declared by the ruling Liberal government in Canada that it would make internet hate speech a crime punishable by fines of up to $20,000 (approximately $16,250 US) for the first offense and $50,000 (about $40,600 US) for the second offense. The idea would penalize social media users who violated the law, but it would protect social media corporations that host illegal content from being fined under the proposal.
After a 20-year-old man rammed his truck into a family of five in Ontario, killing all but one of them, Canadian authorities believe it was an anti-Muslim terror attack. The story was originally reported by the country’s national broadcaster, CTV News.
During a virtual press conference on Wednesday, which was broadcast live on YouTube, Canada’s Attorney General David Lametti promised Canadians that the proposed law would not target “mere expressions of dislike or disgust.” Lametti also expressed his support for the proposed bill.
