NEW YORK, 3rd Oct. The founder and CEO of SpaceX Elon Musk on Monday slammed the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau government for “crushing free speech” in the country.
According to news media, Canadian government made it compulsory for online streaming services to formally register with the government for ‘regulatory controls’.
In retaliation of this recent order Elon Musk made this remark
Musk was responding to a post by journalist and author Glenn Greenwald who was commenting on the ruling.
“The Canadian government, armed with one of the world’s most repressive online censorship schemes, announces that all “online streaming services that offer podcasts” must formally register with the government to permit regulatory controls,” Greenwald posted on X (formerly Twitter)
Elon Musk responded by saying “Trudeau is trying to crush free speech in Canada. “Shameful.”
This is not the first time the Trudeau government has been blamed of acting against free speech.
In February 2022, Trudeau invoked emergency powers for the first time in country’s history to arm his government with more power to react to the trucker protests, who were disapproving the vaccine mandates at that time.
Trudeau alleged India’s role in the killing of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar
India has denied the claims, calling it ‘absurd’ and politically ‘motivated’.
Canada has yet to provide any public evidence to support the claim about the killing of Hardeep Singh Nijjar.
India has suspended its visa services in Canada, following Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau’s allegations of Indian involvement in the killing.
India issued an advisory for its citizens and those who are travelling to Canada to exercise “utmost caution in view of growing anti-India activities and politically-condoned hate crimes and criminal violence” in the country.
