License for free speech = speech is no longer free and communists agree I’m sure. Censorship is the way of coward, thugs and dictators. Now you know who rules the world.

Agreed, it might be nice to hear and see Media itself Push Back against this kind of Federal Liberal PM Justin Social Engineering, surely they must be concerned, where are they ?

Politicians and their Public Sector minions always talk about Free Speech, argument, discussion, and open debate and everything that goes with it, but in reality they mean absolutely none of it .

Seems the Liberals have had a change of heart. No licensing after all the backlash, https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/no-licensing-requirements-news-organizations-guilbeault-1.5449818?fbclid=IwAR35rpyL8G4F0-74T1mosS9QdmzAyTRiP0GLv41rPlHqtubOEqWfrI3InKE

If Trudeau was caught lying, taking bribes, grabbing a womans behind, wearing black paint on his face, admiring dictators. I suppose the only comeback possible would be what about the CPC
