On Tuesday, a witness before a Senate committee alleged that she was subject to intimidation from the federal government for voicing concerns about the Liberal’s Bill C-11, which has been widely dubbed as the online censorship bill.

When asked by Senator Leo Housakos to share her experiences dealing with Canadian Heritage, First Nations witness Vanessa Brousseau explained that “one ministry” had “gas-lit” her and intimidated her after she shared her thoughts on the law.

Shameful behaviour once again from @pablorodriguez‘s department re: #C11. It’s not the first time they’ve been accused of witness intimidation. And its not the first time the Trudeau govt has shown such disregard for indigenous concerns. WATCH as @resilientinuk explains: pic.twitter.com/DDBi9A0g62

“Can you share with this committee what has been your experience with the Minister’s office as an independent [online] content provider from the Indigenous community vis a vis hearing your concerns,” asked Sen. Housakos.

“One ministry that we met with did have a different perspective and felt that they needed to really intimidate me with their perspective when I was really just there to share my perspective as I don’t know all about the bill and I understand that it needs to be passed on certain levels,” explained Brousseau.

“However, this one ministry, as an Indigenous woman basically gas-lit me and told me that they did speak with Indigenous peoples and as somebody that’s connected very well to my Indigenous community, I didn’t feel that was true and I feel the approach they took with me was very intimidating and disrespectful.”

Bill C-11, which the Liberals have branded as an update to the Canadian Broadcasting Act, has been widely criticized as being an affront to Canadians’ right to freedom of expression and harmful to independent creators such as Brousseau.

This is not the first time that the Liberals have faced accusations of witness intimidation over Bill C-11.

A prior report alleged that Canadian Heritage Parliamentary Secretary Chris Bittle and Liberal MP Lisa Hepfner demanded an investigation into Digital First Canada – a group that has raised concerns about the implication of Bill C-11.

Senators have raised the issue in the Upper Chamber, with Senator Scott Tannas calling it a “potential question of privilege and contempt of Parliament.”

University of Ottawa Canada Research Chair in Internet and E-commerce Law Michael Geist also slammed the move and called for “real consequences” for the Liberal government’s behaviour.

“It is sad to see the four Liberal MPs fail to recognize the harms that come with these tactics and while Rodriguez’s office has continued to strategically leak, investigating critics in this manner should be a non-starter and merits real consequences for those that developed and supported the strategy,” wrote Geist in September.



Thanks to your donations, we can move to the next step.  We have filed to incorporate Awake Canada as a registered non profit charitable organization.  To be transparent, I have posted the receipts below.

For those that do not know why we did this, let me explain.   We are going to start using corporate clout to tackle some of the companies that are violating our rights.  Our first target is Facebook Canada for the unlawful censorship, banning, and shadow banning of Canadian Citizens.  Facebook is a platform, not a publisher.  They can write all the mumbo jumbo they want into their terms and conditions, but it does not excuse them from medical liability if people are harmed by them censoring doctors, and lawyers about what is really going on with Covid.

As a registered member of Awake Canada, if we push to class action, you will be automatically entered into this class action and dismissed if you have not ever had a facebook account.   My lawyer will inform me on this as we move to this process.  We are going to start by placing an injunction on my personal account, removing all bans, and shadow bans, and the Awake Canada facebook page.  Any action they take against this page or the content, will be challenged legally.  Be sure you are a member of that page if you are not.   You can join our Facebook Here.

We are temporarily going to pause donations, until the registration process is complete and a new bank account for Awake Canada is setup.  Separating my personal affairs from this corporation is KEY to being successful in our campaigns.

Stay tuned for further updates!
