    It makes sense. But, this is a restriction of freedom of speech. Weird how they do this a week before the election after almost everyone knows who they are going to vote.

    It is not their job to control information or judge for everyone which information is false and which is true. Trying to control the information is evidence of a information war. You can't have Information Warfare without controlling information.

    Can’t CBC be honest it’s like they have no clue on what’s going on south of the border! This anker should’ve quoted us Supreme Court judges and many many other things. Lack of journalism ethics at its best

    Misinformation comes from the main stream media that is promoted by social media while the truth is suppressed.

    Shouldn't the CBC have to claim who they are campaigning for? It is blatantly obvious.

    This is going to strengthen Trumps support among conservatives and may bring some undecided voters, people that believe in free speech

    At least all the public libraries are closed as well. Lead everyone to the internet instead of libraries. When you own the information you can bend it all you want . We are all doomed. EVERYONE IS LYING.
