Free Speech, EH?

"Canadians are proud to hold one of the most valued citizenships in the world. The following passage is written on the Canadian Bill of Rights – a bill that encompasses the Canadian rejection of discrimination by reason of race, national origin, colour, religion, or sex: “I am a Canadian, a free Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship God in my own way, free to stand for what I think is right, free to oppose what I believe is wrong, free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.” (source) (HT: Alan Kurschner)

O Really?

Free Speech, EH?. If we don't speak up for our freedoms, they'll be ripped out from under us!  (Disclaimer: any resemblance to conservative Canadian talk show hosts, Canadian pastors, or American Apologists, is purely coincidental and unintentional.)

"The Panel finds, and the Panel orders as follows: That Mr. Boissoin and The Concerned Christian Coalition Inc. shall cease publishing in newspapers, by email, on the radio, in public speeches, or on the internet, in future, disparaging remarks about gays and homosexuals...
