Ontario’s Bill 84 will silence legitimate political expression


The subjectivity of what is "hate" makes Ontario's Bill 84 very dangerous. This proposed new law to prohibit hate-promoting demonstrations at Queen's Park is short and simple: "No demonstration, rally or other activity that, in the opinion of the Speaker, is likely to promote hatred against any identifiable group shall be permitted on legislative precinct grounds." Bill 84 has passed second reading and is now going to committee.
