That's because we don't have free speech in Canada. You can't go around saying or doing what you like especially things that are harmful.

God the rapist or God therapist which one is it?
User avatar #358 to #357 - godtherapist (06/16/2013) [-]
God The Rapist.

But the reason why it's all in lowercase is to make it ambiguous.

Yes we do. Section two of the charter, fundamental freedoms.
User avatar #4 to #3 - godtherapist (06/15/2013) [-]
No we ******* don't. We have freedom of thought and expression. That is not the same as the freedom of speech.

Thought and expression is free speech dumbass, just can't be used in a hateful manor....HUR DUR WORDS ARE DIFFERENT SO NOT THE SAME AT ALL
User avatar #13 to #4 - whycanticaps (06/15/2013) [-]
isn't speech a method of expression?
User avatar #32 to #13 - snowshark (06/16/2013) [-]
So is ************* a walrus.

You're free to express yourself, not to violate the law.
User avatar #54 to #32 - stardustdragonlord (06/16/2013) [-]
you're also not free to violate a walrus's skull
User avatar #179 to #54 - snowshark (06/16/2013) [-]
Actually, you are. So long as the Walrus isn't alive and the Skull belongs to you. It's debatable at what level of decomposition the walrus needs to be in before it stops being necrophillia but sufficed to say, you can jam your dick into an empty animal skull and people would simply pass you off as a right weirdo.

of course, I wasn't suggesting otherwise
User avatar #35 to #33 - snowshark (06/16/2013) [-]
I figured as much, but this discussion wouldn't exist at all if there weren't some people out there who needed things spelled out for them.

It's not so much for your benefit as for the benefit of those who need it.
#5 to #4 - WutzATroll (06/15/2013) [-]
True, but you can express anything you want, even if it is offensive.
#30 to #5 - anonymous (06/16/2013) [-]
You're right Wutzatroll, this guy is just randomly yelling out sections of our legal system that he has poor understanding of, I said it somewhere else in this **** storm, you can say you dislike someone, you can say you hate the government or a group, you just can't infringe on that groups rights while doing so
User avatar #6 to #5 - godtherapist (06/15/2013) [-]
No you can't.

Sections 318, 319, and 320 of the Code forbid hate propaganda. "Hate propaganda" means "any writing, sign or visible representation that advocates or promotes genocide or the communication of which by any person would constitute an offence under section 319."
#7 to #6 - WutzATroll (06/15/2013) [-]
But you're allowed to say things people find offensive, unless it would incite hatred or fear
User avatar #8 to #7 - godtherapist (06/15/2013) [-]
Wrong again:

The Canadian Human Rights Commission DJ 4DM1Nisters the Canadian Human Rights Act.[9] Section 3 of the Act prohibits discrimination based on "race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, family status, disability and conviction for which a pardon has been granted." Section 13(1) addresses the issue of hate speech. The section states:
It is a discriminatory practice for a person or a group of persons acting in concert to communicate telephonically or to cause to be so communicated, repeatedly, in whole or in part by means of the facilities of a telecommunication undertaking within the legislative authority of Parliament, any matter that is likely to expose a person or persons to hatred or contempt by reason of the fact that that person or those persons are identifiable on the basis of a prohibited ground of discrimination.
Section 13(2) makes clear that posting hateful or contemptuous messages to the Internet is prohibited. Section 54(1) allows a Canadian Human Rights Tribunal to order a respondent to cease any discriminatory practice, to compensate the victim where the discrimination was wilful or reckless by an amount not exceeding $20,000, and to pay a penalty of not more than $10,000.

I don't know where you think you live but you can not do or say things that are offensive in Canada. It is against the law. WE HAVE NO FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

Wait do are you against this lack of a freedom of speech?

I mean, is it a bad thing WBC is not allowed here.
User avatar #122 to #51 - slowshade (06/16/2013) [-]
yes it is a bad thing, not because WBC is good but because trying to bury it is stupid. Its almost as if you are insulting your own people by acting like they might fall for this retardation if its isnt contained. Thats now the right approach, it needs to be brought out into the light to wither and die. Thats why we allow hate speech in America, not just because of muh freedoms.
WBC's retardation should be on full display, everyday, in everyway, god bless the USA!

Well that sucks bro, just hope the don't define certain things as "HATE SPEECH" because that would be pretty ****** up........
#22 to #8 - anonymous (06/16/2013) [-]
We kinda do actually, the charter of rights a freedoms (which comes above all else in Canada) states we do, UNLESS it's hateful or discriminatory, but Section 1 states the government can kinda just ignore those rights....ish...sorta

User avatar #44 to #22 - tealcanaan (06/16/2013) [-]
Well that's not free speech now is it..........
User avatar #24 to #22 - godtherapist (06/16/2013) [-]
I already addressed this. Look at post #4.
#27 to #24 - anonymous (06/16/2013) [-]
And stop copying and pasting **** you google that you clearly don't understand, much of the law is interpretation, which the courts decided a ******* long time ago what "thought and expression" explicitly mean in this country, you clearly have a poor understanding of our legal system, please stop
#26 to #24 - anonymous (06/16/2013) [-]
I know, you're wrong though, thought and expression means free speech genius, we just have it in a way that it can't be hateful, I.E I can say I dislike the governments policies on such n such, not **** THA GOVERMENTS GONNA STAB HARPERS FACE
