[VIDEO] Bill C-304 - Second Reading in House of Commons to strip CHRC of Section 13 censorship

Here is the entire debate in the House of Commons a few days ago during Second reading of Bill C-304, An Act to amend the Canadian Human Rights Act (protecting freedom).

This is the debate in the House of Commons on repealing Section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act, the viscous censorship provision used to harass writers, bloggers and others.

That provision — called section 13 — gives the government the power to censor anything on the Internet “likely to expose a person … to hatred or contempt”.
