ZenTiger Free Speech in Canada

A leftist thinks free speech is something that is paid for out of government taxes.

If you google a chap called Doug Christie, he is a Canadian freedom of speech lawyer. His monthly newsletter is always an interesting read. I will try to find a link.

From Mark Steyn -

Susan Cole, Canadian “feminist,” defending the mob on Fox News:

We don’t have that same political culture here in (Canada). . . .

We don’t have a 1st Amendment, we don’t have a religion of free speech. . . .

Students sign off on all kinds of agreements as to how they’ll behave on campus, in order to respect diversity, equity, all of the values that Canadians really care about. Those are the things that drive our political culture. Not freedoms, not rugged individualism, not free speech. It’s different, and for us, it works.

Translated from the original Canadian, “diversity” means “state-mandated mob-enforced conformity.” As for whether “it works” for Canadians, ask Guy Earle. On Monday Mr. Earle, a stand-up comedian of conventionally Trudeaupian views, goes on trial at the British Columbia “Human Rights” Tribunal for putting down two hecklers at his nightclub act. They were, alas for him, of the lesbian persuasion, and so he is now charged with “homophobia.” What a wretched embarrassment to a once free society.

"What a wretched embarrassment to a once free society."
Yes indeed. And how long before we in NZ reach that stage?

Yes, Canada is very liberal with that stuff. I was checking out the site, Catholic Bridge, of David MacDoanld the other day HERE and through various parts of his site he talks about Canada and their gay marriage laws etc.

Even though they have gay marriage now, you get stories like this in their gay magazine Xtra -

Over the past 10 years [Government] have contracted with experts on gay, lesbian, bisexual health to produce studies ... issues affecting queer Canadians includes lower life expectancy than the average Canadian, suicide, higher rates of substance abuse, depression, inadequate access to care and HIV/AIDS... all kinds of health issues that are endemic to our community... higher rates of anal cancer in the gay male community, lesbians have higher rates of breast cancer ... more GLBT people in this country who die of suicide each year than die from AIDS, there are more who die early deaths from substance abuse than die of HIV/AIDS... now that we can get married everyone assumes that we don't have any issues ... A lot of the deaths that occur in our community are hidden ... Those of us who are working on the front lines see them and I'm tired of watching my community die"

And they claim the above is because of "homophobia". Um, hello? And what do gays want in Canada? Go HERE to see the list on their own website. It will stagger you.

This guy David says on his website -

ecently the Alberta Human Rights Commission ordered a pastor (who said that homosexuality was against spiritual laws), to never write, or speak against homosexuality ever again, even in a personal email, and to actually preach against his beliefs. The same commissioner completely dismissed a case complaining about a song all about "kill the Christians." He said that exposing Christians to hate speech does not put them in danger. There is a complete double standard.

Canada is losing it and going down the road of Secular Humanism.

Fletch, that's a disturbing read.

That's all I can say for now.....
