Welcome incoming, and returning Minister of Canadian Heritage, Pablo Rodriguez, MP for Honoré-Mercier since 2004 – with one break. He previously served as Heritage Minister from July 2018 to November 2019.
I’m sure we all wish Minister Guilbeault well as he takes on the responsibilities of Minister of Climate Change and Environment, one which fits his background far better than Canadian Heritage.
The following was posted on ResearchBuzz, one of my daily go-to sites, on Monday.
I wanted to let y’all know that while I will continue to index articles relating to Facebook’s controversies, I will no longer include articles that are primarily about Facebook features or updates. This includes WhatsApp and Instagram. (Articles that mention them briefly or as a small part of a larger whole will still be included.)
I try to maintain a healthy sense of my own importance in this world (minimal) and consequently this is not intended as A Gesture. Instead I want to make sure I am not encouraging anyone to use Facebook or any of its affiliates. The company is far, far worse than I imagined.
Deciding to completely ignore such a huge part of the Internet was not easy, but it was the only solution that would answer my conscience. I apologize for any inconvenience this causes.
Despite the inconvenience, I hope more of us decide to follow this path. Activity, and the consequent profits, are the only languages Facebook understands.
