The House of Commons censures Maclean’s
This evening the House of Commons unanimously passed a motion censuring this magazine. The following is the submitted text of that motion.
That this House, while recognizing the importance of vigorous debate on subjects of public interest, expresses its profound sadness at the prejudice displayed and the stereotypes employed by Maclean’s Magazine to denigrate the Quebec nation, its history and its institutions.
Independent MP Andre Arthur reportedly objected to the motion, then left the chamber, allowing the motion to be re-introduced and passed.
House of Commons now there’s a team that does not care for free speech. Course they say they do but you just can’t say anything they don’t like. Which is essentially the same as Stalins and Hitlers view on free speech.
Those organizations that denigrate or hate Christians, whites, anglos, farmers, stay at home moms, red necks etc presumably deserve more funding for tax spenders from tax payers I’ve yet to hear the HOC censure one.
When did anyone care about the decades of stereo types of me?
Can we censure the endophobic bigots at the CBC? or at the Winnipeg Free Press, Toronto Star, CUPE, etc. Nope they are progressive bigots so their actions are always acceptable.
Whoever voted for this sucks, but I’m sure there’s a glint in the eyes of Hitler, Che and Stalin as they look up from the flames this morning. Like them the house of commons says you have the right to free speech as long as you agree with the current truth.
Paul Martin was wrong you can cherry pick charter rights! Because the House of Commons is taking a run at Macleans’s charter right 2 freedom of the press, expression and all that. remember Paul and all the liberals saying you cannot cherry pick charter rights? Well now his party have most certainly just proven that you can, seems they voted for this en masse.
Remember if they can vote to take away Macleans rights to free speech we can do it to the left too. I mean the left gets ballistic if you take away Robin Sharpe’s right to child porn or pull funding from some government run anti Canadian agency.
The House of Commons just cherry picked and took away Macleans FUNDAMENTAL freedoms. Shame on the thugs.
1 person in the HOC doesn’t suck today MP Andre Arthur.
I see someone coming here from the CBC gave me a bad rating, boo hoo.
