Special event: Curtailing Big Tech

News Media Canada is sponsoring an upcoming iPoliticsLIVE panel discussion with Parliamentarians about regulating content on the internet. Bill C-10 is currently being reviewed in committee, fuelling contentious debate and prompting a Charter review of the legislation. It has broad support in Quebec.

Facebook just announced a ‘News Innovation Test’ in Canada. Is it a rapprochement or a shell game? Can the government get big tech legislation passed, or will the web giants find a way to co-opt it?

We’ll explore policy solutions for the outsized market impact of social media platforms and internet service providers – and the politics behind new regulations. And we won’t shy away from the tough questions, such as:

·     How should content be regulated?

·     Who should pay for it?

·     What’s at stake for journalism jobs and your community news?

This discussion will be moderated by Janet E Silver, Managing Editor at iPolitics and host of the podcast, ‘No Talking Points’.
