Tory MP Dan Albas: CBC’s Stance On Charlie Hebdo Cartoons ‘Concerning’

A Conservative MP says CBC News’ decision not to publish cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad is “concerning” and could point to a double-standard.

Dan Albas, who represents the B.C. riding of Okanagan-Coquihalla, expressed those views in a blog posted to his website Wednesday after an attack on satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo left 12 people dead, including four cartoonists.

The Paris paper’s provocative cartoons of the Prophet were featured by some publications in Canada this week in a show of solidarity with Charlie Hebdo and expression of free speech.


CBC = Christian Bashing Corporation. Piss Christ is fine but a Mohammed caricature? That’s Racist!
