#74 INTERVIEW w Tom Korski – What’s the rush on internet regulation/censorship?

Tom Korski is a senior reporter at the investigative journalism website Blacklock’s Reporter, which talks about stories the media is missing. Ottawa is trying to ram through Bill C-10 to regulate the internet, despite threats to free speech. The Canada Infrastructure Bank doesn’t build anything, but it pays its executives a lot (just don’t ask how much). And the Memorial to the Victims of Communism is way over budget, even though it’s not built.
