Google Kills Political Ads During Canadian Election Instead of Complying with Transparency Laws

From Mashable:

Canada will hold its federal elections in October 2019. A new law passed in December, Bill C-76, includes the provision that companies that distribute political advertisements must keep a written registry of all political ads that it shows to its customers.

… 

“Google’s decision to opt out of political advertising during the regulated period appears to have been made for business reasons and does not reflect on the quality of our laws, which are designed to protect Canadian voters and our elections,” Gould told the Globe and Mail.
