I am proud to have helped my friend Ezra ( in a very small way) fight for free speech in Canada. Section 13 needs to go. I am very happy that the Tories are listening to the grass roots of our party!
Last week, the federal justice minister, Rob Nicholson, stood up in the House of Commons and answered a question about Section 13.
The question was about a private member’s bill, put by Brian Storseth, an MP from northern Alberta. Storseth has introduced a private member’s bill, C-304, to repeal Section 13. But private member’s bills have little chance of passing without the endorsement of the government.
But Nicholson did endorse it. He called on all MPs to support it, too. Bill C-304, Storseth’s bill, is now effectively a government bill. And with a Tory majority in both the House and Senate, this bill is as good as done.
No more witch hunts by the Canadian Human Rights Commission. No more persecuting their political and religious enemies.
This is the best thing the Harper government has done in five years. Freedom is on the march.
