Default My Condolances to Canadians

For the death of the belief that you folks may actually have freedom of speech. Some of you could probably be jailed for what you say here.

In today's National Post, pg A5 (I happened to be in Montreal today)

Pierre Dion was ordered to jail for 30 days for the crime of -------- speaking out against muslims. Seems he made 2 videos where he denounced muslims and demanded their removal from Canada. His videos were posted on the 2nd anny of the Quebec City mosque shooting. In his videos he praised the shooter and demanded muslims be kicked out of the country.

Whether you concur or condemn his speech, it should be chilling to you that this guy was locked up for nothing more than speaking his mind.

The same issue had a good opinion piece on why gun control was foolish for Canadians. Wonder if this guy will end up in jail for speaking out in favor of guns.

Maybe they can arm themselves with big sticks of Canadian bacon? Could serve as a kind of wussy baton I suppose.

If we went up there to enjoy Moose hunting or curling, most of us would probably be arrested for what we have said on here!

Since they have no "1A" in their constitution they can have no issue with .gov control over their speech.

Hell, even in the USA freedom of speech is constantly under attack by the libbie slimes.

All it takes is enough liberal judges. With Trump’s opportunity to appoint judges you don’t need to be concerned for a while.

One of the greatest ironies is how the libs will cling to BBC and CBC as wellsprings of free and true reporting.

Both are tightly and politically-controlled by their governments. Just ask the Irish about the BBC. Or heck, the Scots for that matter.

People can and are regularly arrested for things they say, write or publish in Canada. Happens all the time.

The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is the brainchild of Pierre Elliot Trudeau. That should tell you all you need to know. He was a smart guy, but unfortunately also a die hard commie SJW and a royal f**king a-hole. He did a lot of damage.

And it's what the liberals want here and are trying to do themselves on social media. Progressives/liberals are tyrants, they don't believe in freedom or liberty.

You have what 15-17 states already signed on to redo the Constitution here in the U S of A. What in the hell do you think they would do to the 1st and 2nd Ad with a new "re-write" of it. I think I recall Ginsburg saying if re-written she would do it much, much differently, all ready on record for that comment. You have whole states joining the movement to send their votes in with the national popular vote, thus disenfranchising so many voters in said states. Dad always said if it works, not broke ,don't fix it. Only power driven nut jobs would try this. The power is a huge drug to them, cash secondary. It is on full display these days...will they make it there, who knows? but the idea of lib's even trying it is mind boggling to say the least.

When this motion was passed in Canada, the left made it a point of saying, "Well, it's only a non-binding motion!"

M-103: House of Commons passes anti-Islamophobia motion

And it becomes ever more apparent why people don't trust the government.
