    Is the Canadian Human Rights Commission anti-free speech?

    The Canadian Human Rights Commission attempts to protect minorities from being oppressed by hate speech. However, some people are critical of it saying that it violates free speech rights. What do you think?

    Since many here are not Canadian, I'm including some links in case you're not familiar with the CHRC.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
