Has Trudeau Killed Freedom Of Speech?

in Canada by

Ezra Levant, the media personality and conservative political activist has lost a case in court on the grounds of calling someone an anti-Semitic seven years ago. The case was filed by Khurram Awan who has been the resident of the Canadian Islamic congress.

Ezra Levant was accused of defamation as he wrote some comments on his blog regarding Khurram Awan as an anti-Semite. With the litigation spanning over seven years, Levant had to pay a lot in Lawyer fees and he lost the case to Khurram Awan.

Awan was the president of the anti-Semitic group called the Canadian Islamic Congress, and Ezra called him one because Khurram Awan himself had once testified saying that certain statements by the Canadian Islamic Congress were anti-Semitic.

Ezra appealed the trial ruling, which had cost him about $30,000. Today, the Ontario court of Appeal gave its ruling and the financial cost that Ezra paid was high.

Ezra might have lost the case and suffered a heavy loss, but what he was more concerned about how is Canada to deal with bigots and racists in the future. The point being made by Ezra is that if anyone makes a comment about someone’s wrong beliefs about a certain race or religion that means that they should be allowed to say something on the media without being scrutinized and charged with defamation cases.

This is not just in the case of anti-Semitism. If someone stands up tomorrow and says death to all Muslims, he should be stopped and punished. The judge ruled against Ezra because according to them, if there are hard feelings and animosity that motivate these comments, it takes away the right of anyone to make a fair comment if they are directed at others associated with that person.

Ezra lost the case, but he won in proving a point that people who are wrong need to be called out on that wrong. Freedom of Speech suggests calling out and exposing the person that is saying or doing wrong. Without this right, anybody would be free to commit crimes, steal, cheat and lie without facing any consequences, PM Trudeau is moving forward to make it illegal for the right to speak.

Canada needs to fight back and take this right.

  1. the federal and liberal govts the full liberal party of canada are treasonist traitors to this country and all need to be hung for their crimes against canadians or tarred and feathered and ran out of the country on a rail they have sold this country out and are destroying everything we held dear our moral and core values and our traditions even our laws and is filling their govt positions with fraudulent mps with fake documentations to be here and muslim terrorist tied mps and it time they all were ran out of this country before they completely destroy all we hold dear and has made this country what it is today

  2. I’ve decided to donate $100 to Ezra’s legal expenses. The ruling is ENTIRELY unfair to all right thinking, fair minded people. AND this ‘win’ is a very useful tool for Islamic jihadists via using our own court system to their favour.
    Ezra is a complex individual and he is very courageous in his battles for our rights. I have helped him before and will now because if WE do not step up to support these efforts by Ezra and others like him, the government will simply take our rights away altogether. The corruption of the federal government is immense in that they are taking OUR unlimited tax dollars to proceed against citizens who are speaking out.
    If people can give even $10 or $20, it will help to encourage Ezra to continue because in the end…we are are ALL Ezra.
