In 10 years, social media has revolutionized the public space. Five million Quebecers now have Facebook accounts. While platforms have democratized the right to be heard, they’ve also revealed a breeding ground for sickening ideas that were once considered a thing of the past. Calls for deportation, outright misogyny, even death threats...Anyone who frequents social media knows just how toxic it can be. Do Quebecers become unusually unhinged online? How far can freedom of expression go? The police and courts are groping in the dark for solutions. A truly shocking inquiry into behaviour on the other side of the screen.
