In a press conference outside the House of Commons Wednesday, Scheer said he looks forward to seeing what the Liberal government will propose to bring the ubiquitous social media platforms under more stringent rules.

"We do have concerns when we look at the actions of Justin Trudeau and his government in the past using, imposing certain things like the attestation on the summer jobs file," Scheer said, referring to the Liberals' requiring groups hiring summer students with federal grants attest they uphold Charter rights.

"But we look forward to having a conversation to make sure all levels of society, whether they're social media platforms or institutions, are doing their part to ensure that people who promote racist ideologies and violent extremism aren't given a platform."
