Meta To End Canadians’ Access To News On Facebook And Instagram If Bill C-18 Becomes Law

  • Meta has decided to block Canadians’ ability to view or share news content on Facebook and Instagram if Ottawa’s online news bill becomes law.
  • Meta made the decision this week amid concerns that it is not clear what the financial burden imposed by the legislation, known as Bill C-18, will be.
  • The bill would make Google and Meta compensate news organizations for posting or linking to their work.
