I use NeoVim and Ctrl+V is a reserved key for multiline select. In the past, I was able to use dconf to disable these shortcuts.

Is there still a way to do this in Juno?

The dconf-key is located under /io/elementary/terminal/settings/natural-copy-paste. If you change that value to false, Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V shouldn't be copying/pasting text anymore.
