  • And he never once said he's sorry

    Jordan Peterson, a professor of psychology at the University of Toronto, and popular author, has just dared his government to "just try and regulate [his] YouTube channel and see what happens" in response to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's support for what many are calling the “censorship bill” which, if passed, has the potential to regulate user-generated social media content and even subject some users to broadcasting regulations if they have a large audience.

    A member of Trudeau’s cabinet, Steven Guilbeault, told CTV News, that the law "should" regulate content created by those "acting like broadcasters," who have "millions of viewers" and who are "generating a lot of money on social media." After public reaction Guilbeault tried to walk back his comments.

    Source: Jordan Peterson challenges Justin Trudeau over social media censorship bill


    Dr. Peterson to Trudeau: "Just try and regulate my YouTube channel and see what happens."


    Dr. Jordan B. Peterson took to Twitter on Wednesday to critique the controversial Canadian censorship Bill. Bill C-10 is currently being pushed forward by the Liberal government and is being spearheaded by Heritage Minister Steven Guilbeault. If passed, the Bill would regulate all Canadian social media users and impose CRTC restrictions on content.

    "How about we don't do this, Canada. I'd hate to move," Said Peterson in a tweet.




    The celebrated Canadian Psychologist also took aim at the CBC:

    "I have a million more YouTube subscribers than our national broadcaster CBC. So does that make me a broadcaster to be regulated by Trudeau's pathetic minions? Or does it just indicate that CBC is a failure, despite the fortune it takes in in public subsidy?

    "CBC, your heavily subsidized but once admired and credible state broadcaster is now ideologically addled, propagandistic, outdated and increasingly despised or ignored. And now you dare to extend your incompetent governance to other media forms?"



    Bill C-10 initially exempted user-generated content from being subject to regulation, but this clause was recently and abruptly removed. Following the alteration of this Bill, multiple experts voiced serious concerns over the new effects, including the former commissioner for the CRTC itself.

    In an interview with The National Post, Former CRTC commissioner Peter Menzies said that Bill C-10 "doesn’t just infringe on free expression, it constitutes a full-blown assault upon it and, through it, the foundations of democracy."

    Dr. Peterson also directly addressed Prime Minister Justin Trudeau saying, "Just try and regulate my YouTube channel and see what happens @JustinTrudeau."

    Dr. Peterson concluded his criticism with by correlating this Bill to Bill C-16, the controversial pronoun Bill that played a role in his rise to fame. The Psychologist also tagged Conservative MP Pierre Poilievre in one of his Tweets and made the announcement that he will soon be appearing on the Jordan Peterson Podcast.

    It's all part of the socialist Great Reset.

    Trudeau is a trust fund baby with the depth of a finger bowl, who can't read a press release any longer than what can be written on a cocktail napkin. Words to that effect from the mouth of Alberta Premier Jason Kenny, who, when he said that 3 years ago, held a great deal of respect from the people of Alberta.

    He has now descended to Trudeau's level.
