(LifeSiteNews) — A Conservative pro-life MP publicly condemned internet censorship Bill C-18, warning that it will give the government authority over journalism.

“The media plays a few key roles in society that we support,” the pro-life conservative declared.
“One: they’re the watchdog, so in other words, they protect the public interest,” Thomas said, referencing the media’s coverage of the Trudeau government “turning a blind eye” to Chinese election interference.
