The Department of Canadian Heritage has published a detailed ‘question and answer’ backgrounder about the importance of the Online News Act.
The document clearly answers critical questions about Bill C-18. This includes simple and straightforward answers to questions such as: ‘Why is this bill needed? Why is it important to “level the playing field” between digital platforms and Canadian news businesses?’ or ‘what are the differences between the Australian regime and the proposed Canadian regime?’
