Canadian News Will Remain Real
In Canada: CRTC drops plan to allow fake news.
Canada's broadcasting regulator has dropped a contentious proposal that would have changed its regulations so that TV and radio stations would be allowed to broadcast fake or misleading news.
Konrad von Finckenstein, chairman of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission, said the broadcasting watchdog abandoned the suggested change once a parliamentary regulations committee agreed to drop the issue last week.
