OUR BASIC FREEDOMS UNDER ATTACK AGAIN BY OUR GOVERNMENT?
I have heard that Section 13 of the Human Rights Act is again being discussed with possible reinstatement by the Liberal government.
The Conservative Party led by Stephen Harper voted to repeal Section 13 in 2013. Section 13 more or less stifles free speech. You could be criminally charged for voicing your opinion., be brought before a Human rights Tribunal (Kangaroo Court) at great cost to you and no matter how innocent you may be, still be charged, fined and ruined because you had stated your opinion.
The whole concept of free speech is quite simple, but to thin skinned opponents who obviously do not have a sense of humour it is considered a criminal offence, or a cash cow for a devious lawyer.
Do you remember when our exalted one stated that he admired the communist government of China. This sort of fits that pattern as free speech in China could place you in Prison or worse.
It is time for Andrew Scheer to step up to the plate and confront these issues and act like a leader. After all, his Conservative base expect this of him.
That’s the way I see it.
