In Canada, we support our media.
Many Canadians are expressing outrage at Meta’s decision to block news from Canadian media outlets on its Facebook and Instagram platforms in order to circumvent the Online News Act (Bill C-18). But despite the chorus of criticism from governments, cities, businesses and the general public, the web giant is sticking to its position and doubling down with a major ad campaign.
We must continue to stand together and spread the message that in Canada, no one is above the law. Together, we must support all the Canadian media outlets that are paying the price for Meta’s outrageously dominant position in the advertising market.
