    OTTAWA-The Bloc quebecois rebels to see that lobbyists hired by the giants of the Web have contributed financially to the liberal Party of Canada.

    The training policy considers that it is still the links that unite the liberals with the Google, Facebook and Netflix.

    Since the election of 2015, a score of lobbyists have mandates of the great web, that have contributed to the coffers of the liberal Party for an amount of $22,000.

    For the Block, we see a method that works: the web giants are not taxed, many of the contracts of advertisements are allocated to Facebook and Google, and a special agreement has been reached with Netflix.

    “It is clear that when you have a “boyfriend” who comes to see you to ask you a service, you have a tendency to say yes and you want to make him happy, denounced the member of parliament Xavier Barsalou Duval. In general, I think that it is good for the giants of the web in general; for the interest of the public, I do not think that this is beneficial.”
