Canada: Online hate speech could be curtailed under new anti-terror push

In the wake of this week’s attacks in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Que., and Ottawa, the Conservative government is looking at bringing in new laws to crack down on pro-ISIS sentiments like those posted to Quebec assailant Martin Couture-Rouleau’s Facebook page, CBC News has learned.

The move to tighten Canada’s Criminal Code is expected to come as part of a sweeping overhaul of Canada’s national security regime.

Earlier this week, RCMP Supt. Martine Fontaine told reporters investigators simply didn’t have enough evidence to arrest Couture-Rouleau, despite concerns over his possible radicalization.

“We did not have enough evidence to charge him and to detain him,” she noted…

Will thought crime make a comeback? Another delightful side effect of “multiculturalism.”  It is a pointless exercise since Canada cannot control the Internet outside Canada.
