O Canada: Documentary on censorship in Canada censored for talking about censorship?

Last year, Danish ex-pat filmmaker Michael Hansen made what appears to be a factually bulletproof documentary on radical Islam entitled, “Killing Europe,” showing the effects of “Islamification” on Western Europe.

After the library caved to the bullies, Hansen made a documentary about the assassination of his film entitled, “O Canada.”

FUREY: No, the Trudeau Liberals are not above parody

The other month I was at a store that had books for sale at the front and noticed there was some new title about or by Donald Trump. The U.S. President was emblazoned on the cover and in large gold lettering — Trump’s favourite colour — was the name “Donald J. Trump.” Right where the author name goes.

So he’s got some sort of new book out, I thought. Then I got closer. Not the case at all. Below the author name, in much smaller font, was written: “a so-called parody by Alec Baldwin & Kurt Anderson.” It was the actor further capitalizing on his well-known impersonation of Trump. Fair enough.

This is especially true if you criticize the Government of Ontario. This “democratic” government will use the force of criminal law to silence any policy questions.
