Mark Steyn: “Nothing going on in Canada justifies the return of” Section 13
Author Mark Steyn was in Ottawa today, testifying before a Justice Committee exploring the reinstatement of Section 13, the internet censorship provision of Canada's Human Rights Act that was deemed unconstitutional in 2013 and repealed by the Harper government.
Steyn was prosecuted in three Canadian jurisdictions under this law, over his Maclean's cover story about Islam and changing Western demographics.
Right after he
testified this morning, we talked about his experience testifying before
today's committee, and he explained why he still believes that Section 13 and
other censorship measures do nothing to keep Canadians safe, and in fact leave
society worse off.
