Censorship in Canada

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter

Abstract

During World War II, various Canadian provinces defined censorship along policies that restricted the free and public expression of ideas generally, but also in particular the ideas or opinions believed to have the potential to undermine the moral order bureaucratic authorities considered its responsibility to protect. This included both the public and private mediums via which the exchange of ideas and opinions could be expressed and disseminated. In 1942, the chief postal censor liaised with Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and the three branches of the military to help define and itemize the kinds of information it required for censorship. Then, in 1943, postal censorship in Canada was transferred from the jurisdiction of the Postmaster General to the Minister of National War Services. The private correspondence of many homosexual servicemen was censured as a result.
