Canada to Coulter: Nice ‘Free Speech’ You Got There . . .
by

Ann Coulter is beginning a tour of Canadian college campuses, and the Canuckistani human-rights commissars are up in arms. An official of the Universtiy of Ottawa sent Coulter a warning letter:

We have a great respect for freedom of expression in Canada, as well as on our campus, and view it as a fundamental freedom, as recognized by our Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. I would, however, like to inform you, or perhaps remind you, that our domestic laws, both provincial and federal, delineate freedom of expression (or “free speech”) in a manner that is somewhat different than the approach taken in the United States.
I therefore encourage you to educate yourself, if need be, as to what is acceptable in Canada and to do so before your planned visit here. You will realize that Canadian law puts reasonable limits on the freedom of expression.
For example, promoting hatred against any identifiable group would not only be considered inappropriate, but could in fact lead to criminal charges. . . .

I scored a brief Q & A with Coulter today.
