Licensing news websites is a scary concept. A member of Trudeau’s team (the leader of Canada) is on board with this. Scarier still is deciding who is a news site, and who is not? Is just placing up links a news site? Drudge Report does that. Reporting on the news? TMZ does that. While it may not happen here, it’s happening next door, and that’s scary.

Canadian Heritage Minister Steven Guilbeault has stated that news websites could be forced to obtain government licenses to operate in Canada.
