Liberals' proposed online harms bill slammed in 'secret' submissions from tech companies, telecoms

National Post: 'The submissions said the bill could be used for censorship, as a “tactic” by political parties, and a joint response by the telecoms warned of government overreach in asking for subscribers’ private information without judicial authorization.


'The bill has now been sent to an expert advisory panel for review after the government acknowledged the response to its initial proposal was “predominantly critical.”


'But the government refused to release the 422 submissions it received. Only those submissions that stakeholders chose to release themselves were available to public and media. Many of those warned the proposal as outlined would infringe privacy and breach Charter rights.'
