Canada: Feds planning laws against COVID-19 misinformation is ultimate irony

Liberal minister Dominic LeBlanc told CBC News that he’s already been in discussion with cabinet members, including Justice David Lametti, to bring in some form of legislation to tackle online misinformation regarding COVID-19. “Legislatures and Parliaments are meeting scarcely because of the current context of the pandemic, so it’s not a quick solution, but it’s certainly something that we would be open [to] as a government,” LeBlanc told CBC News.
