This is what is behind Trudeau’s agenda with regards to the press. Excerpt:

GLOBAL COMPACT FOR SAFE, ORDERLY AND REGULAR MIGRATION

INTERGOVERNMENTALLY NEGOTIATED AND AGREED OUTCOME

13 July 2018

We, the Heads of State and Government and High Representatives, meeting in Morocco on 10 and 11

December 2018, reaffirming the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants and determined to

make an important contribution to enhanced cooperation on international migration in all its dimensions,

have adopted this Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration:

 

OBJECTIVE 17: Eliminate all forms of discrimination and promote evidence-based public

discourse to shape perceptions of migration (Page 24)

 

33 c) Promote independent, objective and quality reporting of media outlets, including internet based

information, including by sensitizing and educating media professionals on

migration-related issues and terminology, investing in ethical reporting standards and

advertising, and stopping allocation of public funding or material support to media outlets

that systematically promote intolerance, xenophobia, racism and other forms of

discrimination towards migrants, in full respect for the freedom of the media
