By now you've probably heard about the Toronto man fired by Hydro One after being caught on camera defending the practice of yelling a particular obscenity at female reporters. But think about that part:
This guy wasn't one of the original shouters. He answered a reporter's question about the annoying fad, saying he approved of it.
That seems almost like he was punished for a thought crime.
Then he was fired -- via Twitter. Is any of that legal?
In some cases, disturbing the peace and similar actions are illegal -- but as I point out, the authorities are selective about who gets punished.
If these laws were applied equally, Toronto's Gay Pride Parade would be a crime scene, and pro-Palestinian protesters yelling "Heil Hitler" like they did in Calgary last year would be in trouble too.
PS: Does the name "Avery Haines" ring a bell? Watch and see why she's suddenly back on the scene.
