Yes; I can see arguments under Sec. 91 and 92, as well Charter Sec 15 (equality).
Remember Catherine McKenna's lesson on how to sway the public: If you say it often enough and loud enough then people will believe it. Yesterday I watched five different Liberal politicians spew the exact same talking points one after another. That's 90 minutes of my life I will never see again.It bears keeping in mind that this is not about firearms. This is about the Liberals cultivating support in urban ridings at the expense of rural ridings which they could never hope to win.
It may change the way movies are advertised in print (e.g. posters) and video games are packaged and advertised but I doubt it will affect the content.
The Big Lie technique of propaganda is a long known and practiced one which predates McKenna.Remember Catherine McKenna's lesson on how to sway the public: If you say it often enough and loud enough then people will believe it.

Freedom of thought, opinion, and expression. That is much more substantial than freedom of speech as it covers the whole process and that includes the right to believe in violence as acceptable means to a end (considering every human interaction is ultimately based on violence, I don't see how the government can arbitrarily declare its unacceptable for others to use or consider the means it itself uses to squash resistance).Those were dumb comments. I understand getting emotional about this topic, but we have to keep things civil. Mr. Clare is a usually well spoken and usually articulate guy. This seems out of character and will not win us support among the undecided. It will also only give our opposition more squeals of horror which never make us look good, facts be damned.
As well he, Mr. Clare, is incorrect we do not have freedom of speech we have freedom of expression and I do not believe that covers calls for violence and intimidation.
The wife has had me on honey do tasks all weekend... What did I miss ?I finally had an opportunity to watch the second reading of Bill C-21. To say I was shocked by Minister Blair's response to Conservative MP Shannon Stubbs would be mild. Shocked, but not surprised.
