Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is beginning his second term with demands for new regulations on “hate speech” and a nationwide ban on conversion therapy.
Justin Trudeau has told four of his cabinet ministers in his mandate letters to them that they are tasked with regulating online hate speech. Trudeau told the new heritage minister that he’s to “create new regulations for social media platforms, starting with a strong requirement that all platforms remove illegal content, including hate speech, within 24 hours or face significant penalties.” Except Trudeau doesn’t include a definition of “hate speech,” nor does he direct the heritage minister to come up with a definition.
True North’s Andrew Lawton, who covered the government’s online hate study last year, warns this could be the return of a supercharged version of section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act, meaning a limitation of free speech.
Trudeau said his “top priority” was preventing LGBT+ people from getting conversion therapy whether they want it or not.
LGBT+ conversion therapy could soon be banned across Canada after Justin Trudeau made this one of the priorities for his new government.
In a letter to the country’s justice secretary on Friday, the prime minister stated that banning the controversial practice of attempting to forcibly change people’s gender or sexuality must be a “top priority”.
He said the Minister of Justice and Attorney General David Lametti must work to ”amend the Criminal Code to ban the practice of conversion therapy and take other steps required with the provinces and territories to end conversion therapy in Canada”.
You must stay gay and if you dare to complain about it in a way deemed offensive you’ll be sent to jail for hate speech.
This is what progress demands of you, citizen!
