Canada repealing "hate speech" provision?

The Canadian Conservative Party has overwhelmingly approved a resolution to repeal the "hate speech" provision that has been used to trample on the free speech rights of Christians, White Nationalists, and others who speak out against homosexuality and other groups that undermining Canadian culture and heritage. At its recent convention in Winnipeg, the Conservative Party approved Resolution P-203, which would repeal Section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act, the "hate speech" provision. According to, "Brian Rushfeldt, the executive director of the Canada Family Action Coalition, says repeal of Section 13 is long overdue. "Section 13 is the one that allows, basically, Human Rights Commission people to persecute somebody for freedom of speech on an issue that the commission feels is either promoting hate or causing discrimination against a particular individual," he explains. But Rushfeldt believes it will be up to the people to push for the repeal of Section 13. "I think the people of Canada are going to drive it [at] the next election if there hasn't been action taken before that to fix the Human Rights Act," he contends. "I think the people of Canada are going to make this an election issue, and I believe that the Conservative Party is the only one that would even consider changing the Human Rights Act." There is little chance, Rushfeldt says, that Section 13 can be repealed with the current makeup of Parliament." However, White Nationalist Paul Fromm, the director of Canadians for Free Expression (CAFE),, which is an organization that has been in the fore front of free rights and expression in Canada has been sounding the alarm of such laws in Canada since 1981. On a side note, Paul Fromm will be speaking at the Faith and Freedom Conference at the Soldiers of the Cross Bible Camp near Harrison, Arkansas, which will be held on April 4,5 and 6 (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday), to to for future reference on this conference. Now, few Christians believed the law would be used against them by homosexuals. But it has done just that. Homosexuals now just have to claim that Christians are promoting hate and causing discrimination against them whenever the Christians preach that homosexuality is a sin from the Bible. If the commission feels that this is occuring, an individual can actually be criminally charged for violating Section 13. And don't think that this is not happening in America. It is, but it is just a slower process. With criminal statutes that enhances crimes because of race, such as "hate crime laws," laws preventing an individual to run their business as they see fit, such as the Civil Rights Act of 1964, these are all small steps to ultimately to take rights from individuals (the people) and place it slowly to the government. Until then.
