  1. The internet is now a big liability when there is an emergency, as we see today. Not only does it spread false information without controls, inciting panic in some cases, apparently it has the ability to sway the out come of elections. If we depend on the internet as a medium for communicating vital information in an emergency, it becomes difficult to do so when traffic itself is incredibly high, as it most certainly will be. The increased volume of information leads to an overload that "swamps out" any urgent messages that need to be sent.

    Simple example- Charity groups and many other organizations that depend on donations are seeing complete downturn in financial support. Yet the problems they deal with continue, the virus does not give our society a break when it comes to these problems.

    There is no way in the current media frenzy for them to get a message out. The same would apply to other types of urgent situations.

      Going from downplaying the virus to becoming incoherent, panicky and hysterical about it? Who could have guessed that would happen. :lol:

      We have to be vigilant  as don't forget,  Trudeau's Department of Industry claimed in 2019 that  self-regulation of the internet is inaccurate and told the House of  Commons to police online content, according to Blacklock's Reporter.
      Clearly the gov't is trying to shut down opposing views so we must be extremely vigilant as it's likely they will try something during this crisis as we know they allready tried a power grab.   Often changes enacted during a crisis get to stay, so would not be surprised if he tries something again.
