The harassment of Khalid is wrong, but doesn’t justify M-103

MP Iqra Khalid – Islamist 5th Columnist

For the most part, email and social media have been fantastic developments for keeping family, friends, citizens, colleagues, businesses and customers in touch, informed and connected – instantly.

While apps such as Facebook and Twitter have hurt my business – newspapering – they have democratized the news, opening up information gathering and dissemination to nearly everyone with a smartphone. In the long run this is a positive, liberating information and reducing the number of filters between newsmakers and ordinary people.

Threats are uncalled for, calling her out for trying to railroad through an anti-democratic Islamist motion that threatens our right to free speech is entirely justified.
