Censorship is typically considered to be the removal or blocking of information, speech or expression. It also includes “self-censorship,” where individuals or organizations limit what they say for fear of repercussions.
In Canada, censorship is more often subtle than blatant. Currently, it takes many forms such as the muzzling of federal scientists, refusing activists entry into Canada, book seizures at the border and libel chill. The common denominator is that voices are silenced.
