Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has currently been in office for approximately 8 years. During his mandate, Justin has great ambitions for technological progress in Canada.

Recently, there has been a conflict in Canada, where a major technology company namely Meta or commonly known previously as Facebook has officially blocked news content in Canada.

The reasons why these big companies are blocking news content in Canada started when Canada implemented a new legal policy requiring big digital companies to pay royalties to news publishers for news content shared on their platforms.

In this law, it is considered that this is only specific to the companies Google and Meta, because these are the two companies that meet Canada's own criteria.

Citing the Mediaindonesia.com page, with this, of course, these big companies oppose the new law that was adopted by Canada because they consider this law to be very unfair to them and burdensome. Of course, this was considered by the company, depending on whether this law would solve the main structural problems or vice versa.

With this conflict occurring, it certainly raises a lot of questions and confusion from the public who are having difficulty finding important information about what is happening.
