The B.C. hate speech trial that nobody’s heard about

With Parliament’s anti-Islamophobia motion in the news recently and the country divided over the issue of freedom of speech as it applies to criticizing identifiable groups, it’s strikingly odd that a real live hate speech trial – the first in B.C. in about a decade – concluded this month with a controversial sentencing, yet barely a whisper from the media.

    Another example of why “hate speech” and “hate crimes” should never exist. I only know what I just read from the link about the case, and based on that the man, no matter how much I disagree with his views, should have been entitled to free speech. He did not call for or incite violence; he did not commit a real crime. Yet the irony of it is astounding in that we now have allowed into the country a multitude of foreigners actually calling for violence and death to Jews who get a green light. Once you call for and incite violence and death, this is an actual crime. Yes, a crime covered under the traditional criminal code and not part of free speech.
