Mark Steyn: ‘Some People Want To Kill You For Disagreeing

Mark Steyn, the cross-border conservative writer, commentator and humorist, closed the Manning Centre Conference in Ottawa on Saturday afternoon with an impassioned defense of free speech.

Steyn particularly focused on the recent introduction of Motion M-103 in the Canadian Parliament, potential legislation that “is not benign and harmless; it will lead to more violence because it says you cannot discuss these issues in public. In countries where there is no free speech, shooting, killing and violence are the only ways to make your opinions known,” he said.

M-103 is an anti-“Islamophobia” motion that critics say will criminalize all criticism of Muslims, including Islamic extremist terrorists.
