Majority of Canadians support Charlie Hebdo’s right to publish cartoons of Muhammed, poll shows

The vast majority of Canadians support Charlie Hebdo’s right to publish incendiary cartoons of the Muslim Prophet Muhammed, and most prioritize freedom of speech over fear of offending religious sensibilities, according to an Angus Reid  poll for theNational Post released Monday.

The not-for-profit institute polled 1,525 people in February, just after al-Qaeda affiliated terrorists killed 11 people inside the newspaper’s Paris offices in January. A police officer was killed just outside.
