Reader comment on: Canada: Parliament Condemns Free Speech
Submitted by Emyh Salg, Nov 10, 2016 09:26
This is a frightening slide into a politically correct abyss. The established mainstream political parties are guilty of destroying free speech and democracy itself. I am not suggesting that vilification or intimidation is OK, but criticism and satire are within the boundaries of civilised discourse.
Governments such as this Canadian example, made up of mainstream political parties should be aware that momentum is building in western countries to dispose of them and replace them with governments who listen. Trump in the USA, Brexit in Britain, a number of minor parties / independents in the Australian parliament and just wait for the next round of elections in Europe. Out with the PC nanny state and in with those who listen to their public.
