On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, Sheila Gunn Reid joined me for an update on her ongoing battle with holdover NDP-appointed bureaucrats who are threatening her with prosecution for writing a book.
In this clip, we talk about how the former NDP Justice Minister Kathleen Ganley slipped up and admitted that she wants to use “hate speech” laws to keep individuals she doesn't personally like from having a platform.
Sheila points out that free speech doesn't just mean self expression, and that it's used to defend our own ideas. The NDP, says Sheila, do not have the intellectual capacity to argue against the ideas of people such as John Carpay so they'd rather ban him outright than risk embarrassment.
John Carpay has recently been in the news for his coverage of the transgender Brazilian bikini wax trial in B.C., but we also mention his work with the NDP's demands that independent religious schools ought to censor the Bible based on the NDP's standards.
