Reader comment on: Canada's New Blasphemy Laws
Submitted by Morley S. Wolfe Wolfe Q.C., Mar 8, 2017 21:28
What was omitted in this article was the reference to not only condemn Islamophobia, but " all forms of systemic racism and religious discrimination ", which would include antisemitism - this does not appear to be some slippery slope into what Americans believe is intrusion into freedom of speech (a) it is only a resolution, and (b) it does not have the power of law enforcement - it may reflect the reaction of Canadians to recent barbaric shootings in a Quebec mosque, rest assured it will not inhibit freedom of speech in this country, nor will it lead to such a result. We have a Criminal Code which contains bars against that kind of hate speech.
