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’.
