As for what’s next, the bill will now go to Senate. Senators have said that there is no chance that the bill gets approved the week before Parliament goes on summer break, according to law professor Michael Geist.
Guilbeault blamed the Conservative Party for the “six weeks of systemic obstruction of the bill,” having served a notice last night of a motion to “propose at the next sitting a motion to allot a specific number of days or hours” to get the bill passed as soon as possible.
The bill could also give the CRTC overwhelming new powers, something that former vice-chair of the CRTC Peter Menzies called a violation of the rights of ordinary citizens.
