OCLA petition says hate charge against Kevin Johnston ‘systemically political’

The Ontario Civil Liberties Association (OCLA) is asking the Attorney General of Ontario to reverse his decision to charge a Mississauga resident with a hate crime.

The organization has launched an online petition intended for Yasir Naqvi regarding the charge against Kevin Johnston of wilful promotion of hatred.

“The Ontario Civil Liberties Association believes that the proceedings against Mr. Johnston are systemically political in nature and should not be consuming public, police, and judicial resources,” says the petition, which was launched last week.

“We believe that the proceedings are harmful to Canadian society, in addition to being unacceptably unjust towards a citizen.”

    Good to see that one of these Civil Liberties organisations is actually doing its job. They are correct in this being a political prosecution.

    • WalterBannon

      not that it will do any good at all

        It does indeed seem that the Kangaroo courts have now expanded beyond the HRC’s.

        • Alain

          Except now they are Sharia courts.

      • Alain

        You are probably right, but at least I am glad to see one of these organisations claiming to represent civil rights actually do so for once instead of only pushing the leftist agenda. Also the more noise they make about it, the more the public become aware, because that won’t happen with the MSM.

    Imam General of Ontario Yasir Naqvi will never reverse his decision to charge Kevin Johnston with Blasphemy against his false prophet Mohammad.

    Ontario is an Islamo-Fascist police state and the liberals are treasonous crooks.

      Nothing going on here that dead pigs wouldn’t fix. If you have any better way to convince them that they chose the wrong career, feel free to enlighten me.

      THEY are the damnable swill who do WHATEVER they are told, as long as that paycheck keeps comin’ in. Down here South of the Border, they are Rove Republicans and have all the character traits associated therewith:

      No morals.
      No principles.
      No scruples.
      No honor.

      The stench is overwhelming. And it smells like pig.

        They are just ‘following orders’.

          Indeed you are correct;

    What Benjamin Franklin penned in the 1700’s bares repeating today.

    “This sacred Privilege is so essential to free Governments, that the Security of Property, and the Freedom of Speech always go together; and in those wretched Countries where a Man cannot call his Tongue his own, he can scarce call any Thing else his own.

    Whoever would overthrow the Liberty of a Nation, must begin by subduing the Freeness of Speech; a Thing terrible to Publick Traytors”

    Benjamin Franklin, Silence Dogood No. 8 1:27a

    This attorney general is muslim, so you won’t see him reversing his decision at all. I don’t know exactly what Kevin Johnston said, but if it was the truth, it is not a hate crime. Of course we all know it’s racist to tell the truth about any minority these days.

  • Everyone Else

    How can the Star report hate crime against Muslims and not mention the Attorney General authorizing the charge is a Muslim?

    • Alain

      Easy they do this sort of thing all the time.

      • Uncommunist

        They’re exceptionally devious.

    • bargogx1

      They would probably consider it “Islamophobic” to point that out.

      I signed it even though I live in BC, since I saw nothing saying you had to reside in Ontario to sign. Thanks.

    Interesting that Kevin might be soon be canaduh’s first political prisoner. Expect more to be ‘discovered’ and imprisoned. This is just the beginning.

  • Ho Hum

    Its more than systemically political. This is the institution of Sharia law in Canada by a Pakistani Muslim AG on the heels of bill M103 brought to us by another Pakistani Muslim.

    Where’s the beef (facts) on this charge, Wynne’s asshole attorney general?
