“With the passage of Bill C-16, the ‘gender expression’ law, the erasure of women – and the physical risks they will run in formerly safe spaces – will escalate. All of this is happening because progressive influencers have persuaded themselves – or, fearing accusations of transphobia, say they are persuaded – that the differences between men and women are based in social construction, not biology… Only with regard to gender do we permit the denial of genetic reality to be accepted as a ruling principle of national life, with indoctrination into the theory of ‘gender fluidity’ often beginning in earliest childhood, with or without parental consent, and with complete disregard for its negative psychological effects on children.” – Barbara Kay, “The moral panic over gender is very irrational and very real “ – The Post Millennial, August 31st, 2019.

“A new law allowing for hate groups to be designated and punished before they turn to violence is needed in order to tackle far-right extremists, according to a report by Tony Blair’s thinktank, which also seeks powers to ban marches and media appearances… The law… would designate hate groups as organisations that spread intolerance and antipathy towards people of a different race, religion, gender or nationality, the report said… The authors acknowledge that… steps would need to be taken to protect free speech.” – Jamie Grierson, “New law needed to take on far-right extremism, says Blair thinktank” – The Guardian, August 27th, 2019.

“The court, which is an arm of government, has told the father what he must call his own child, in conversations with the child and even in conversations with third parties… Compelled speech violates free expression as protected by section 2(b) of the Charter, and has been described by the Supreme Court of Canada as ‘totalitarian, and as such alien to the tradition of free nations like Canada’… In addition to protecting every person’s freedom to speak, hear and listen, the Charter also protects the right not to be compelled by the government (including the courts) to utter words which are not one’s own.” – John Carpay, “B.C. court ruling against father in child hormone treatment case sets dangerous precedent” – The Post Millennial, August 6th, 2019.

“The Canadian Anti-Hate Network will publish the names of 250 members of the neo-Nazi Canadian Nationalist Party if they are successful in becoming a registered political party. We plan to publish these names and their cities of residence as soon as they become public, and will encourage local media to run stories naming neo-Nazi supporters in their communities… This kind of naming and shaming is part of our mandate of exposing hate groups to make sure communities are well-informed, and to ensure that there are significant, nonviolent social consequences for supporting hate groups.” – Extract from a Canadian Anti-Hate Network July 10th statement, quoted by the Canadian Assoc. for Free Expression in a press release issued on July 15th, 2019.

“The issue centres around the repeated pressure being put on social media outlets by the Trudeau government to stop what the government claims is ‘misinformation’… A series of restrictive policies have been put in place surrounding political advertising, and this has resulted in Google saying that political ads will not be allowed in Canada ahead of the federal campaign… In this case, the Liberals have the entire massive apparatus of government in order to get their message out, they have their $600 million media bailout to influence the press, and they have the CBC to push their messaging – all without the opposition having anything similar.” – Spencer Fernando, “Twitter political ad ban shows Trudeau Liberals dangerously restricting dissent” – The Post Millennial, July 10th, 2019.

“Prosecutors said Jones shared Islamic State videos that depicted the deaths of people who were beheaded by a child soldier, drowned in a cage, and blown up by a rocket-propelled grenade while locked inside a vehicle. Another video demonstrated various ways to stab someone. It was titled, ‘Some of the deadly stabbing ways: Do not forget to poison the knife’… Still, their lawyers argued, ‘this is all protected speech, [no] matter how morally objectionable it may seem. Supporting distasteful, objectionably horrible groups is in and of itself not a crime. In fact, it is protected by the Constitution’.” – Jon Seidel, “Two suburban men guilty of providing support to Islamic State” – Chicago Sun-Times, June 20th, 2019.

“The newest wrinkle comes under the category of Lawfare. It consists of hate crime laws that are directed against anyone criticizing Jews and, increasingly, Israel. In fact, any criticism of Israel is frequently being seen as a criminal offense, a trend that is also evident in the United States at the national, state and local levels, where Jewish groups have also been quick off the mark in claiming that anti-Semitism is surging. Freedom of speech in the western world has been diminished as a result.” – Philip Giraldi, “Recruiting American spies for Israel: Tax-exempt American foundations lay the groundwork” – The Unz Review, June 18th, 2019.

“If you censor speech, you break faith with Canadians because you say we are not to be trusted with dangerous ideas and your job is to save us from ourselves. In which case it is impossible to understand why we should be trusted with ballots.” – John Robson, “Censoring free speech breaks faith with Canadians. Don’t go there” – National Post, June 4th, 2019.
