Perhaps I missed this before, but I havenâ€™t read anything posted by our Canadian friends here at LISNews about this legislation.
"â€¦Proponents of Bill C-250 have reassured Canadians that the legislation won't censor religious speech so long as such expression does not promote hatred.

Are we all in agreement this is an example of a knee jerk reactionary Canadian government?
