Valerie Price, Director of ACT! for Canada, is also a co-sponsor of the event. When I asked her if she would consider either cancelling or postponing the event because of threats from Antifa, she replied: “No way is this going to happen if I have anything to say about it. What are we supposed to do – lie down and roll over and surrender every time we are threatened by Antifa? This conference is about free speech and freedom of association. How is this hateful? What is truly hateful is their threatening behaviour and what they should understand is that we don’t preach hate – we expose it. Maybe that’s what they don’t like. This event WILL go on”.
Price continued: “When the Heritage Committee refuses to allow C3RF to make a presentation before them, we will still be there. When they try to impose restrictions on free speech with their blasphemy laws, we will be there. We are not going anywhere. We will become their conscience. We must defeat Motion M- 103”.
