    Edit: He was travelling to Cnada to debate several people about free speech including: Imam Steve Rockwell the director of Sheikh Deidat Mosque, Dr Masud Ansari a prominent Islamic author, Dr Bikram Lamba Canada’s most prominent Sikh leader and author, Ron Banerjee Director of Canadian Hindu Advocacy.
    As a Floridian, don't send him back!

    Lol, Canada. Why would anyone want to conquer Canada? Pancakes, maple syrup, and monster mosquitos?
    We do respect free speech. what we won't tolerate is hate speech designed to incite violence. Our hate speech laws are very specific, because freedom of speech is a fundamental right as outlined in our charter of rights and freedoms.

    You'd want it for lets see.... tons of natural resources trailing only Russia in that regard. 1/4 of the worlds fresh water. Tim Horton's coffee, the best hockey players, beavertails, and monster mosquito zappers, oh and of course way better beer.

    You forgot to mention that hate speech varies on a province by province basis and those aren't very strict depending on the province.

    What is Canada's position on hate speech BY Muslims?

    Most complaints by Muslim groups have actually been dismissed. In regards to to hate speech by Muslims aslong as it doesn't "exposes or tends to expose to hatred, ridicules, belittles or otherwise affronts the dignity of any person or class of persons" in Saskatchewan or in Qubec is based on "race, colour, sex, pregnancy, sexual orientation, civil status, age except as provided by law, religion, political convictions, language, ethnic or national origin, social condition, a handicap or the use of any means to palliate a handicap."

    this is just another reason why I like America more than Canada.

    I have no love for the guy at all... but I'll take a million idiots like him over stepping on free speech to keep one of them out.

    Exactly the same as hate speech by redneck christians or neo nazis or anyone else espousing hatred of and violence to an identifiable group.

    Most canadians don't have a problem with muslims, or christians or jews or hindi, or buddists or white, black, brown or red. they are generally viewed both in law and in our society as simply canadians. Occasionally an allowance on religious grounds is made, like in Toronto Shiks can carry their kirpans and shik police officers can wear beards and turbans.
