Section 13 returns? Liberals consider letting Canadian Human Rights Commission censor the internet again

Do you remember Section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act?

It was the censorship provision, that banned anything “likely to” expose a person to “hatred or contempt”.

That’s absurd — hatred and contempt are human emotions. You can’t legislate emotions.

Under Section 13, truth was no defence. “Fair comment” was no defence.
