Free Speech in Canada

Free Speech in Canada, Rory Leishman, Catholic Insight

Canadians should be especially wary of stating anything in a newspaper or magazine published in Alberta or British Columbia that might offend some Muslim zealot, gay rights activist, or a member of any other class of persons covered in the human rights laws of these provinces. Furthermore, Canadians in all provinces should beware of Section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act, which prohibits posting anything on the internet “that is likely to expose a person or persons to hatred or contempt” by reason of that person or person’s identification with 14 different prohibited grounds of discrimination, including race, religion and sexual orientation.

The rest.
