The Senator Fighting Bill C-11

The Senator Fighting Bill C-11




About this episode

Last month, the Senate proposed twenty six amendments to Bill C-11, the Online Streaming Act, and the Heritage Minister rejected eight. One of those rejected amendments was proposed by Senators Paula Simons and Julie Miville-Dechêne. Its rejection may have a huge impact on many digital-first creators. Jesse sits down with Senator Simons to talk about the bill, this amendment in particular, and what the Senate can do in situations like this.
