Behind the Scenes

It seems to have started — Meta is blocking some users from accessing Moose FM on Instagram after the Online New Acts, also know as Bill C-18, passed in June.

Although, we didn’t think our content would get banned for a few months, it seems to have happened to some users.

Only some people will now see the message that the account has been blocked. Other users won’t notice any change. Over the next few months, we expect everyone to see the same message as Meta works to implement this across their platforms.

It’s not just us that will be affected. Every news source and radio station in Canada will be removed.  

If you want to know what’s happening in your community, you can’t rely on Meta (Facebook and Instagram). You must visit our websites, download mobile apps, or join newsletters

Moose FM and Energeticcity will continue to closely monitor the situation surrounding Bill C-18 and inform Peace region residents of any new information that is released.
