Demonstrators Carry Blank Signs Outside "Islamophobia" Trial to Protest Free Speech Chill by BC Human Rights Tribunal
The signs protesters carried at the courthouse said it all by saying nothing.
Protesters carried blank signs in front of the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal in Vancouver Monday morning to draw attention to erosion of freedom of expression. They say the Tribunal is being heavy-handed by forcing MacLean's magazine to appear at a hearing for publishing an excerpt from Mark Steyn's book, America Alone.
MacLean's faces a complaint by Muslim leaders of "hate speech", but protesters say the Tribunal poses a danger to free speech. In fact, they say that the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal, where truth is not a defense, has morphed into Canada's "thought police".
