Petition update

Christie Blatchford common sense commentary in national media

Ontario Civil Liberties Association

Aug 1, 2017 — Christie Blatchford of the National Post has exposed the insanity of it all, and covered OCLA's petition.

We were beginning to wonder when Canadian common sense would emerge.

In contrast to the situation in Canada, just last month the Washington Post reported on a USA Supreme Court ruling this way:

<<[The idea that the government may restrict] speech expressing ideas that offend … strikes at the heart of the First Amendment. Speech that demeans on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, disability, or any other similar ground is hateful; but the proudest boast of our free speech jurisprudence is that we protect the freedom to express “the thought that we hate.”>>
