Ezra Levant and Brian Storseth discuss Bill C-304
Bill C-304, an Act to Protect Freedom of Speech, will strip the powers of the fanatical Canadian Human Rights Commission to censor the internet using sections 13 and 54 of the
Canadian Human Rights Act the CHRC has attacked the freedom of expression guaranteed to us under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The provisions of these sections allows the Canadian Human Rights Commission to prosecute anyone alleged to have said or written something “likely to expose a person or persons to hatred or contempt” whether there is a living, breathing victim or not.
Every journalist, writer, Internet webmaster, publisher and private citizen in Canada can be the subject of a Human Rights complaint for expressing an opinion or telling the truth. Bill C-304 will repeal Section 13 and no longer allow the fanatics of the CHRC to censor another Canadian posting on the Internet.
Arbitrary censorship and punishment are wrong, and can never be justified in a free society!
