Discussion in 'Canada' started by William Joyce, Nov 2, 2004.
Makes sense to me. Go Canadian Customs!
I'll send them over to your house see if any of your books are "illegal." What's your address?
They can go right ahead. I'm pretty sure, i'm in the clear.
Well good news Joycie we live in America not canada, you know what I find funny though, whats gonna happen when these liberals go to Canada and got all kinds of stuff like this.
Enshrined absolute freedom of speach is not found in Canada. Hate speach is not protected under our consitution, unlike in the States which values free speech no matter what.
If people have a problem with that, well don't come to Canada!
I'm surprised at you Isaac.
What do you find so hateful about this particular book?
And why do you seem to think that your government has a right to decide which speech is acceptable and which is not?
And why are you unable to see the seeds of totalitarianism contained in this policy?
Must be gettin cold up there. Appears to me that your brain is starting to freeze over just a bit. Migh want to throw another bearskin on the igloo floor.
Speech that is meant to incite violence in banned in Canada. Simple as that. Doesn't matter if it's against Whites, Blacks, Jews, Christians, Gays, Straights etc.
It's a lot like the Patriot act. It is designed to protect you at some costs to your rights. You have a right to your opinion, you have the right to speak your opinion, except when it is used to insight violence.
Actually that is a very good example.
Where the Patriot acts gives protection at the cost of privacy.
Our hate speach laws give protection at the cost free speech.
If not being allowed to speakout violently against cultural/relgious groups at large is the price I pay for multiculturalism with less violence. So be it.
