Globalist lawmakers in Canada are pushing a disturbing new piece of legislation that seeks to jail members of the public who question the “Net Zero” agenda of the unelected World Economic Forum (WEF).
The push aims to tackle so-called “climate skepticism” as governments around the world scramble to meet the WEF’s “Net Zero” goals.
The legislation, Bill C-372, was introduced by Canada’s left-wing socialist New Democratic Party (NDP).
Under the bill, the promotion of fossil fuel use will be outlawed with restrictions similar to tobacco advertising applied.
Those who speak in favor of fossil fuels, or criticize plans to eliminate them, will face massive fines and possible prison time.
The bill was authored by New Democrat MP Charlie Angus, a close ally of Canada’s far-left Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Angus was runner-up in the NDP’s 2017 leadership race which was won by Jagmeet Singh.
The prominent lawmaker has dubbed his bill the Fossil Fuel Advertising Act.
Angus seeks to curb if not ban advertisements for fossil fuels while outlawing criticisms of the policies required to comply with Net Zero.
In his bill, Angus cites “health” and “environmental” concerns by drawing parallels between the tobacco and fossil fuel industries.
He insists that such drastic measures are necessary to tackle a so-called “crisis” which he alleges is caused by fossil fuel consumption.
“Whereas fossil fuel production and consumption has resulted in a national public health crisis of substantial and pressing concern, in a way that is similar to the public health crisis caused by tobacco consumption,” the bill reads.

The bill proposes a range of restrictions, including outright bans on wrongthink with severe penalties for non-compliance.
It introduces terms like “producer” and “promotion,” broadly defining them to encompass various opponents of the anti-fossil fuel agenda.
According to the legislation, a “producer” is an individual who questions the policies, presumably by posting on social media or speaking publicly about it.
Someone who engages in “promotion” is a person or entity who brings attention to the questions raised by the “producer” by advocating the talking points or sharing the information on social media.
Also outlined in the bill are suggested penalties for individuals who “engage in false, misleading, or deceptive” critique of Net Zero policies.
“It is prohibited for a person to promote a fossil fuel, a fossil fuel-related brand element, or the production of a fossil fuel,” the bill reads.
Moreover, failure to comply could land individuals in prison for “up to two years.”
Outlined in the bill is a summary of the penalties that “violators” would face, including:
For “Producers Violating Promotion Restrictions”:
On conviction on indictment, a producer could face a fine of up to $1,000,000 or imprisonment for up to two years, or both.
On summary conviction, the penalty could be a fine of up to $500,000 or imprisonment for up to one year, or both.
For “False Promotion”:
Producers who engage in false, misleading, or deceptive promotion could, on conviction on indictment, be fined up to $1,500,000 or face up to two years in prison, or both.
On summary conviction, the fine could be up to $750,000 or imprisonment for up to one year, or both.
For “Other Persons (Non-Producers) Violating Promotion Restrictions”:
Individuals other than producers found guilty of contravening promotion restrictions on summary conviction could face a fine of up to $500,000.
