Freedom of the Press in Quebec?

Corrupting journalists
Quebec's communications minister has come up with a conceited, self-important, cockeyed plan

My thoughts are that is at best a slippery slope. My gut tells me real bad idea real bad idea. How far would this license idea go? Would blogging "news" if you are not a licensed Journalist get you in trouble?

Better access to Quebec Government information if you are licensed? What happened to the ability of citizens to get information from the government on their own?

All the information should be released/available to everyone, from the person who only consumes the information, to the person who's blog is read but 1 or 2, to the reporter with 10's or 100's of thousands of readers, to the TV reporter with millions of watchers. Not just a licensed few

Not going along with the anti CBC slant at the end of the article.
