    The day after that, you can't yell above a certain decibel level.

    Then, it will be illegal look cross-eyed at someone.

    The point being, if there is a line, then it can always be re-drawn.
    Actually it is going in the opposite direction. Just listen to what is allowed to be said on TV compared to 20 yrs ago. Just listen to conversation around you in public.


    By the way, what is a bohump?

    Google tells me a goofy or ugly guy. Yeah it is going the other way on television and radio, just watch any show for pre-teens or teens.

    Canada survived for a quite a long time with just the commonwealth to trade with! I have a lot of respect for Canada as they have always answered the call and have managed to carve themselves a little piece of heaven in a region dominated by America.

    We're not like stupid Canadians, willing to sit back while our civil rights are slowly stripped away from us. Some folks act as it it's never happened, before.

    We view it as a reasonable limit on freedom of expression.

    Not a single civil right was ever threatened by the Patriot Act.

    Therein lies the problem: who gets to define, "reasonable limits"?

    By same criteria I really mean whims of the government of the day.

    Communists were once not allowed into the US, a Dutch politician was not allowed into the UK and book burners are not being allowed entry into Canada. My feeling is that anyone should get a visitors permit unless they are criminals or until they break the local laws.

    I'm an adult Canadian and don't appreciate anyone telling me what i can see or hear.

    Those with differing opinions are now being shouted down by Canadian leftists and the culture has become dull and predictable as a result. This affliction is not occurring only in Canada but throughout the western democracies, though seldom do i hear freedom of expression being rationalized, or given as a positive quality, as often as I do in Canada.
