Welland Tribune: Australia is in a fight with Facebook and Google. Canada could be next

Welland Tribune: Australia is in a fight with Facebook and Google. Canada could be next. “It’s language typically reserved for armed conflicts or natural disasters. This week, Canada’s heritage minister used it for a regulatory spat in Australia. ‘The Canadian government stands with our Australian partners and denounces any form of threats,’ Steven Guilbeault said in an emailed statement to the Star’s Susan Delacourt. The ‘threats’ Guilbeault referred to involved some of the world’s richest and most influential corporations, Facebook and Google, which have separately warned Canada’s friends down under that they will suspend services in Australia or block media organizations from using their platforms if Canberra follows through with a law they don’t like.”
