Is Fox News banned in Canada due to a law against lying?

Is there any truth to this article? It includes references to this page and this page, and to Canada's Radio Act. This is getting a lot of attention and upvotes on Reddit, but if the story is actually true it seems it should be getting more mainstream attention.

3. No, Fox News is not banned...but the concept of Fox News, lying to the public..

in the news, is banned. Last year, a committee was deciding whether to allow Fox type entertainment re the news.. rather than honesty in reporting..

A DU poster warned us about the committee at the time, posting an email address..

So, thanks DU.. I was in the US at the time.. away from Canadian newspapers & TV..but was able to email the committee in time ..

Note: We do receive Fox News, but our Canadian News channels cannot operate like Fox News.. they have to be honest in reporting.
