    Remind me not to visit Wal-Mart in the future Ken.

    I think that the disconnect for many Americans, when hearing about Canadian censorship and wondering how they can do that?, is that Americans don't understand that Canada's charter of rights is just "a law" to be construed equally with all other laws, including section 13.1, porn codes, and the like. Canada, like Britain, doesn't have a bill of rights which enjoys constitutional status, trumping lesser laws in derogation of those rights.

    From an American perspective, it's also too easy to forget the relatively vigorous protection our courts have given speech, even in hard cases like flag-burning (not a hard case in my view, but it was for many), Nazis applying for parade permits, and "erotic dance." If we care about speech, we should appreciate those hard cases and the protection the courts have extended all the more, because popular speech isn't what gets censored.

    Great job! Scary stuff, this must become a national conversation.

    IMHO Warman is acting like a certified fascist. I bet American, European and Australian bloggers can mock Warman right into a straight jacket. Everyone in Canada must hear about this Warman and the HRC injustice!

    This fellow in the HRC, Richard Warman, sounds like a totally wonderful human being who doesn’t have a huge chip on his shoulder or one evil bone in his whole fair-minded body.

    He doesn’t at all sound like a sick and demented bastard who is angry and bitter because he got his butt massively kicked in those elections years ago.

    absurd thought –
    God of the Universe likes
    human rights commissions

    that violate human rights
    while claiming to protect them

    absurd thought –
    God of the Universe hates
    real freedom of speech

    an American concept
    which is NOT for Canada

    Why Does Canada Allow This?

    All real freedom starts with freedom of speech. If there is no freedom of speech, then there can be no real freedom.
