I hear this more often than I enjoy: “I know my rights!” “I can say that because I have Freedom of Speech”. Here in Canada, we have no such right. We have something, imo, much better: Freedom of Expression.
This means you are welcome to express your opinions and thoughts so long as they don’t infringe on the rights of anyone else. You do not have the right to propagate hate, intolerance or prejudice.
What makes me want to write about this? I just thought I’d like to get it out there. Help clarify in case anyone in this country wasn’t clear on one of our rights and freedoms. I hate to say it (again) but I think too many people (especially non Americans) watch too much American tv that the lines between fantasy and reality is becoming blurred.
