Free speech is the bedrock of any free nation. Canada was founded on the premise of free speech but over the past years it’s being eroded through political correctness and what have you. Our freedom of speech is about to eroded even further.
The Trudeau government wants to bring in what is basically an Islamic blasphemy law.
You will not be allowed to criticize Islam.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Government is quickly proceeding to address unproven increases of “Islamophobia”— and he’s going to do it by curbing the right to free speech.
The government’s anti-Islamophobia initiative began in the form of a seemingly innocuous online petition presented to Canada’s House of Commons. Citing no evidence whatsoever, the petition made a bold claim that Islamic terrorism has been used as a pretext for a “notable rise of anti-Muslim sentiment in Canada”.
The petition called upon the House of Commons to recognize that terrorists are not real Muslims by condemning all forms of Islamophobia, with no exact definition of what they meant by the term.
That request — with no evidence, not a single case of Islamophobia cited, virtually no public input, and zero attention from the mainstream media — received unanimous consent by Canadian MPs.
The petition was followed in rapid-fire fashion by a second motion sponsored by Liberal MP Iqra Khalid which called for the Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage to produce findings and recommendations within 240 calendar days of the motion’s acceptance. Titled “Systemic Racism and Religious Discrimination,” the Motion M 103 demands that the government not only condemn Islamophobia in word but that it also develops a whole-of-government approach to reducing or eliminating Islamophobia.
And so, it’s anticipated that legislative remedies — legal options — will be front and centre in the Committee’s efforts going forward.
In short: The Canadian government is preparing to silence anyone who criticizes Islam.
We must not allow this censorship. We need to fight for our freedoms. Call,write,tweet,fax, which ever way you can to contact your MP and tell them to VOTE AGAINST THIS, tell them we will not tolerate this or they will face the consequences next election. You can also sign the petition to make your voice be heard. Make sure you spread the word. We must protect free speech in Canada.
