The proposed ‘hate speech’ legislation being reintroduced by MUSLIM Diversity Minister Ahmed Hussen* would allow people to take others to court if they suspect that someone might post content deemed hateful online.
*Hussen used to be Trudeau’s Minister of Immigration and helped flood Canada with tens of thousands of Muslim freeloaders.
Post Millennial (h/t MarvinW) Bill C-36 states that “a person may, with the Attorney General’s consent, lay an information before a provincial court judge if the person fears on reasonable grounds that another person will commit (a) an offence under section 318 [advocating genocide] or subsection 319” [inciting or promoting hate, promoting hatred].
It also covers “an offence motivated by bias, prejudice or hate based on race, national or ethnic origin, language, colour, religion, sex, age, mental or physical disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or any other similar factor.”
The bill states that those who practice discrimination or communicate hate speech online or via “other means of telecommunication” in which hate speech is likely to foment “detestation or vilification” of an individual or group of individuals on the basis of a “prohibited ground of discrimination.”
It also does not provide a clear-cut definition of what hate is, and instead says that “hatred means the emotion that involves detestation or vilification and that is stronger than dislike or disdain.” This means that someone could still technically post “dislike speech.”
Gee, glad I’m not in Canada or I’d be in court every other day!
