just curious, how do you feel about Westboro spewing hate at military funerals?
What i find strange is you cant say the F word on TV, but you can spew hate on the street corner.
We can allow our kids to be subjected to this vile hate on the street corner, but we have to censor "bad language." on TV. I really dont get that.

Your country is nothing when it comes to democracy or civil rights. Hell you guys cant even freaking count votes right! .. yes that was a dig at the 2000 election.
The day your country gets same sex marriage rights across the US.. then you can maybe start to call yourself adequate when it comes to "civil rights".
Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
Free speech is entrenched in our charter of rights and freedoms. What is NOT is hate speech lie for the purpose of inciting hatred and violence against any particular group. There is also a rarer form in regard to deliberately lying to incite hatred/violence.
There is a substantial difference:
I can say that all neo-nazis are deformed mutant knuckledraggers and thats okay,.
If I say that all neo-nazis are deformed mutant knuckledraggers that true canadians should shoot them on sight - that is not okay.
You can mock religion, you can make fun of immigrants, you can say odious things about whomever you want. What you can't do is incite others to violence and hatred.
We don't stop neonazis from protesting. We don't stop bigots from voicing their bigotry. We don't stop anyone from criticizing anyone else.
And of course we have the other same restrictions to free speech that America does.
