Statement - Minister Bains comments on the Federal Communications Commission vote on net neutrality



OTTAWA, Dec. 14, 2017 /CNW/ - The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, made the following statement:

 "We support an open Internet where Canadians have the ability to access the content of their choice in accordance with Canadian laws.

"Net neutrality is one of the critical issues of our times, much like freedom of the press and freedom of expression before it.

"That's why our government has a strong net neutrality framework in place through the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC).

"We believe that an open and accessible Internet is vital to the free flow of content and information, which, in turn, is vital to our democracy.

"Freedom, equality, diversity and openness are important values for our government, and we firmly intend to uphold these values.
