I miss the 90s

There was still innocence around. People were allowed to be creative and have fun. Shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer are a good example. The librarian was trusted. He wasn't just considered a creepy adult hanging around Buffy. People were allowed to get their creative juices going without the government and special interest groups acting like authoritarians. I seriously wonder how much more the government and creepy interest groups will sow the seed of distrust on our society so that they can grab more control and power over people in every sphere of their private life that was once protected by the Charter of Rights and Freedom.

Since the Canadian government has in effect become authoritarian and against the interests of the people they're supposed to represent...

We're mostly fucked.

I don't think so, it was a weird time of paranoia, IMO. Everyone was convinced all men were pedophiles.

.. the advent of the Charter in 1982, we have lost freedom of speech. Apparently a Constitution Act protecting "Freedom of expression" is really an insidious way of violating that freedom, as long as it is "prescribed by law" and ideological judges decide it is a "reasonable limitation in a free and democratic society," which basically means nothing since Lord Sankey's "living tree" doctrine.

You had far more freedom of expression in Canada for its entire history than in recent memory.

is your baseline for social realities of the recent past? You're not nostalgic, you're clueless.
