Meta, the company that owns Facebook and Instagram has stated that soon news from Canada could be blocked from its platforms. This move would also involve Newfound News.

What is Happening?

Meta has threatened to pull Canadian News content from its platforms if Bill C-18 passes and becomes law in Canada.

Meta previously did this in Australia and has threatened the same in the United States.

Bill C-18, the Online News Act, would require tech giants like Meta and Google to strike deals which would compensate Canadian media companies for linking to or repurposing their content online.
