Defend Freedom of Speech in Canada

Petition published by Canadian Centre for Policy Studies on Oct 01, 2009
470 Signatures 
Target: politicians across Canada
Region: Canada

Petition Background (Preamble):

Freedom of Speech is an essential component of a free society. In Canada, this freedom has been under attack under the pretext of protecting and promoting human rights.

Laws that prohibit the free expression of opinion undermine the very foundations of a free and tolerant society and are, therefore, illegitimate and must be abolished.

Petition:

We the undersigned call on lawmakers at all levels of government in Canada to:

A) Examine all legislation within their jurisdiction intended to protect and promote human rights, and

B) To amend said legislation to remove those provisions that prohibit or otherwise limit the free and sincere expression of opinion.
