Federal Government Committee Publishes Its Report about Online Hatred

In June 2019, the House Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights in Ottawa published a report about hateful expression on the Internet.

Taking Action to End Online Hate tentatively recommends reinstating section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act. Parliament abolished the section, which authorized online censorship, in 2013.
