Is Canada Going To Arrest Citizens Who Promote Fossil Fuels?!

Did the Canadian government announce plans to arrest citizens who promote fossil fuels?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Canada To Begin Arresting Citizens Who Promote Fossil Fuels!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that the Canadian government just announced plans to arrest citizens who promote fossil fuels!

Truth : Canada Is Not Arresting Citizens Who Promote Fossil Fuels!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Canada Is Not Arresting Citizens Who Promote Fossil Fuels

Let me start by simply pointing out that the Canadian government did not announce any plans to arrest, imprison, or fine citizens who promote fossil fuels.

There is no such announcement, or law that was recently passed that would give rise to such a claim, and The People’s Voice article offered no evidence to back up its “fact checked” claim.

Fact #2 : C-372 Was A Private Parliament Member’s Bill

The People’s Voice article referred to Bill C-372 (An Act respecting fossil fuel advertising), which is a private member’s bill introduced by Charlie Angus, a Member of Parliament from the New Democratic Party (NDP).

A private member’s bill (projet de loi émanant d’un député) is introduced by a legislator who is not acting on behalf of the executive branch. In other words – this bill was not being introduced by the Canadian government, as suggested or claimed in The People’s Voice article.

Fact #3 : C-372 Has Not Been Passed

In Canada, any member of parliament can submit a private member’s bill like C-372, but most of these bills are not even voted on, much less passed. In fact, the vast majority of private bills that do become law, were passed for the purpose of changing the name of the riding (jurisdiction) represented by the MP introducing the bill.

More importantly – C-372 remains a bill, which is a proposed law. It has not been passed, so it is wrong for anyone to claim that the Canadian government plans to “imprison and fine citizens” who “promote fossil fuels”, as claimed by The People’s Voice article.

Fact #4 : C-372 Does Not Criminalise Free Speech

The People’s Voice article claimed or suggested that the C-372 bill will “criminalise any speech that promotes fossil fuels – even the statements being made are true and accurate“.

It’s actually stated in the Application section of the C-372 bill (which you can read here), that the Act would not apply to:

5 This Act does not apply in respect of:

(a) a literary, dramatic, musical, cinematographic, scientific, educational or artistic work, production or performance that uses or depicts fossil fuels, fossil fuel-related brand elements or the production of fossil fuels, whatever the mode or form of its expression, if no consideration is given, directly or indirectly, by a producer, a retailer or an entity that has as one of its purposes to promote fossil fuels for that use or depiction in the work, production or performance;

(b) an opinion, commentary or report in respect of fossil fuels, fossil fuel-related brand elements or the production of fossil fuels if no consideration is given, directly or indirectly, by a producer, a retailer or an entity that has as one of its purposes to promote fossil fuels for the reference to the fossil fuels, fossil fuel-related brand elements or the production of fossil fuels in that opinion, commentary or report; or

(c) the name of an entity or the name under which the entity carries on business.

In other words, even if it is passed and becomes law, the C-372 bill will not criminalise free speech, including making statements that are true and accurate about fossil fuels.

Fact #5 : C-372 Was Not Introduced By Justin Trudeau

The People’s Voice article used a photo of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as its cover image. Just in case there is any confusion – Justin Trudeau did not introduce C-372, nor did he express any support for that private bill.

Here is a photo of Charlie Angus, who obviously looks very different from Justin Trudeau. They are also from completely different political parties. Charlie Angus is from the New Democratic Party, while Justin Trudeau leads the Liberal Party of Canada.

Why would anyone use a photo of Justin Trudeau as a cover image for an article about a private bill introduced by a completely different Member of Parliament???

Fact #6 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Publishing Fake News

The People’s Voice is the current name for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Founded as Your News Wire in 2014, it was rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018, before becoming The People’s Voice. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news on Facebook that year.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should never share anything from NewsPunch / The People’s Voice.  Here are some of its fake stories that I fact checked earlier:

2024 Petrol + Diesel Subsidies To Use 3 Methods!

Malaysia is planning to use 3 methods to channel petrol and diesel subsidies in 2024! Here is what we know so far…

 

Malaysia To Use 3 Methods For 2024 Petrol + Diesel Subsidies

On Monday, 6 November 2023, Economy Minister Rafizi Ramli revealed that Malaysia will use three methods to channel petrol and diesel subsidies in 2024, after the government has household income data from the PADU (Pangkalan Data Utama) central database hub that will is expected to be completed in January 2024.

According to Rafizi, the government has identified several ways to channel the petrol and diesel subsidies, but the new system will only be implemented if the cabinet approves the proposal to be presented this month (November).

The coordination of diesel and petrol subsidies is planned for 2024, through the implementation of Padu which is expected to be completed in January next year.

In addition to how the subsidies would be implemented, the engagement plan will be announced after the cabinet’s decision is reached through a proposal that will be presented this month (November).

The plan will be implemented after the cabinet’s decision is reached, in line with the engagement plan (of Padu implementation) which is set to balance the speculative inflation risks.

2024 Petrol + Diesel Subsidies To Be Based On Net Income

Rafizi said that the three methods will be based on net individual and household income.

  • The first method is based on the individual’s net income, which is the person’s take-home pay, after taxes.
  • The second method is based on the household’s net income through social protection or assistance schemes.
  • The third method is based on a combination of household and individual income, but implemented through a subsidy card.

Firstly, the subsidy provision will be based on an individual’s net income through a social protection scheme, whereas the second method will involve the net income of the households through a combination of social protection and social assistance.

Thirdly, it will be based on both individual and household net income eligibility, where a subsidy card will be implemented. Following this, specific decisions on the methods will be announced based on the specified targets in the future.

According to Rafizi, the proposed scheme for 2024 petrol and diesel subsidies was based on a nationwide survey conducted in June, to identify subsidy methods that would be suitable for Malaysians.

The planning for diesel and petrol subsidies has already taken place through several meetings held by the government since May with the Finance Ministry, Domestic and Consumer Affairs Ministry, the Prime Minister’s Economic Planning Unit as well as Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM).

Hence, it can be said that the proposal (for the subsidy rollout) is the result of input provided by the government, economic experts as well as the people.

Apart from that, the cabinet will also establish a communication, engagement and support plan to alleviate the people’s burden, which will be executed as a unified effort by the entire government machinery.

The proposed 2024 petrol and diesel subsidies programme will only involve peninsular Malaysia, with diesel subsidies to be reduced in phases. The reduction in diesel subsidies will not involve Sabah and Sarawak, due to the extensive use of diesel in those two states.

The Shell Fuels With DYNAFLEX Technology Revealed!

Shell officially launched their new fuels with DYNAFLEX technology at a glamorous launch event at the St. Regis. Instead of introducing it in certain fuels, like their premium V-Power fuels, Shell implemented it across their entire range of petrol and diesel fuels.

What on earth is DYNAFLEX? This is exactly what we will reveal to you in this article.

 

The Shell Fuels With DYNAFLEX Technology Revealed!

Before the party started, Shairan Huzani Husain, the Managing Director of Shell Malaysia, gave us us a media briefing on the new Shell fuels.

Mae Ascan, Senior Scientist at Shell Global Solutions, then explained the Shell DYNAFLEX technology that her team developed.

Later, we were shown the difference the new additive package makes in cleaning up the fuel injectors and inlet valves.

Here are the key takeaway points about the new Shell fuels :

  • The Shell DYNAFLEX technology is a new additive package that is designed to keep the engines clean and protected for efficient operation.
  • The new Shell fuels maintain the same fuel formulation as their predecessor, so their energy density remains the same.
  • The additive package for petrol comes with friction-reducing molecules and cleaning molecules. to lubricate the inner piston ring, and keep the intake valves and/or fuel injectors clean.
  • The additive package for diesel comes with cleaning molecules to keep the injector nozzles clean.[adrotate group=”2″]
  • Mae Ascan and her team spent over 5 years since 2009 developing and testing the additive packages.
  • They tested it on more than 250 cars running over 3 million kilometres to refine the new formulation.
  • The new friction-reducing and cleaning molecules work better than their predecessors, but Shell will not quote a figure, because they say it varies from engine to engine.
  • The new Shell fuels do not only come with new friction-reducing and/or cleaning molecules, some also come with more of them (compared to the previous additive package).
  • The Shell FuelSave 95 petrol now comes with 20% more friction-reducing molecules.
  • The Shell V-Power 97 and V-Power Racing fuels have 3X more friction-reducing molecules than FuelSave 95, and 20% more cleaning molecules than before.

 

Availability

The new Shell fuels are now available at all Shell stations nationwide in Malaysia from today, at no additional cost. They are also available to industrial customers and commercial fleet owners through Shell’s B2B channels.
