Skip to comments.Provost of the U of Ottawa is Threatening to Criminally Prosecute Ann Coulter!
Posted on 03/21/2010 2:31:23 PM PDT by Syncro
Of course I believe in Canada many facts about liberals, homosexuals et al, unless sprinkled with a generous porportion of political correctness will be considered as "promoting hatred."For example, promoting hatred against any identifiable group would not only be considered inappropriate, but could in fact lead to criminal charges. Outside of the criminal realm, Canadian defamation laws also limit freedom of expression and may differ somewhat from those to which you are accustomed.
This email was revieved by Coulter just recently. She is scheduled to give a speech there tomorrow
File Charges against him!!!
The hard core left are empowered and will stop at nothing now-they feel invincible.
She is much smarter than this academic. She will just refer to them as unidentifiables. We will all know what she means.
hahhaha i would love to see them get Ann’s mouth in court.....
Francois “Azz” Houle
So speak freely, but not so freely to where you may offend anyone, including yours truly, or we’ll lock you up and throw away the key!
It’s as Canadian as substandard Maple syrup! Whoops, I offended the maple syrup producers! Crimnal or civil, take your pick on this one.
There will be a hoard of the looney left there tommorrow protesting her appearance...I hope there is good security.
Har, I think you are right, good one!
This is the thread here at FR about the event
Actually, it is Francois A. Houle. Or not.
Or she could just refer to them as "Orwell's pigs" in every reference... /g
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.
Hatred has nothing to do with speech in Canada. Opening your mouth in Canada equals hatred if an identifiable group even complains regardless of evidence. Just ask Mark Stein. who is being prosecuted unless something has taken place I am not aware of.
Exactly the type of laws libs want here in the U.S.
Why don’t libs head over to Iran and enjoy the laws on speech there?
Funniest... line... ever! I'm dying here! I can here Mark Steyn howling, too.
No kiddin’...This whole affair ought to be good...
I’m sure we’ll hear more about this visit...
Is Ann so desparate she has to go to the wasteland of Canada? I didn’t think there were actual people up there...only French.
Maybe just Ann Coulter?
If a Vancouver Canucks fan says he hates the Rangers, is that actionable?
I think this guy needs an email from the Commandant of the Marine Corps advising him of actions the US military can take against any terrorist nation who holds a US citizen hostage.
Just like "reasonable" gun laws.
What a cordial invitation! Don’t fall for the baited trap Ann, you may want to give Mark Steyn a call for lawyer (solicitor) advice if you do go.
Have they banned her books?
Watch it. They've made huge sacrifices on the battlefields of Afghanistan.
They had laws like this in the Weimar Republic.
I believe they just drop their gloves and try to pull each other's shirts over their heads. Then they share knuckle sandwiches. Very civilized, eh?
“hoard” s/b “horde”
Noted. Thank you!
Yes, liked that line too
We have a great respect for freedom of expression in Canada-now shut up!
Or maybe a whored of the looney left there?
A part-time sociology professor at the University of Ottawa is claiming to be the victim of mistaken identity after French police indicated he was under investigation in connection with a Paris synagogue bombing 27 years ago.Right Franny, we believe you.
Hassan Diab told Le Figaro, a French daily newspaper, that he has never been a member of a Palestinian organization or a political militant.
A sketch released by French police of the suspect in the Oct. 3, 1980, bombing that killed four people and left others injured is said by police to bear a resemblance to Diab. The explosives were hidden in saddlebags attached to a parked motorcycle.
SAME LAST NAME
Diab is a joint Canadian and Lebanese citizen who was born in Beirut in 1953. He told the French newspaper that his name is quite common and that it's not the first time he has been confused with someone else. He said during his employment at the American University of Beirut there were four other people with the same last name.
Diab currently teaches two sociology courses at the University of Ottawa. He did not return calls or e-mails yesterday.
Francois Houle, dean of social services at the University of Ottawa, didn't know Diab, who was was hired by the department to teach classes this semester.
There are many conservative, entrepreneurial people in Alberta who despise the frog socialists in Quebec.
I would inform you how repugnant your letter is to the spirit of free political speech and debate, not only in the United States, but in the realms that remained under the Crown, such as your own. However, as a professor of political science, it’s exceedingly unlikely that you don’t already know. Shame, sir.
(one of my faqvorite AC quotes)
They have rights granted by God as all do, BUT they HighJacked by their government...
** Maybe Ann Coulter will mention that..
Actually, I don’t see anything sinister with this letter. It is just a mention of differences between Canadian and U.S. freedom of expression laws. There are a lot more important issues at hand than this...
One more reason to consign the Canadian "nation" to the ash heap of history.
There are fewer people there then in the State of California, and they run a little totalitarian socialist state on our borders, and are currently importing a sizable population hostile to our nation and freedom.
Time to end that little vestige of the past, and open up the natural resources to the people who brought freedom of expression along with political liberty to the world.
35 million smug little commies don't really deserve to control that much soil.
I suggest you say that to my relatives (all conservative and many Canadian Armed Forces veterans) in Alberta, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. If you landed in traction, you'd merely be lucky.
The only thing more annoying than a left-wing Canadian is a left-wing French Canadian.
I had my fill of them during the closing ceremony of the Vancouver Olympics.
Ann should say whatever the hell she wants to. If the pompous asses in Ottawa arrest her, she’ll make a fortune by selling even more books.
Canada isn’t a country - It’s the Balkans of North America with a bunch of diverse tribes who detest one another.
On the day the hostages were seized, six American diplomats evaded capture and remained in hiding at the Swiss and Canadian embassies. In 1979, the Canadian Parliament held a secret session for the first time since World War II in order to pass special legislation allowing Canadian passports to be issued to some American citizens so that they could escape. Six American diplomats boarded a flight to Zürich, Switzerland, on January 28, 1980. Their escape and rescue from Iran by Canadian ambassador Ken Taylor has come to be known as the Canadian Caper.
Operation Yellow Ribbon
Operation Yellow Ribbon is the name of the operation that Transport Canada created to handle the diversion of civilian airline flights following the September 11 attacks in 2001. The operation started after the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) grounded all aircraft across the United States and re-routed incoming international flights to airports in Canada.
During the operation, departing flights, with the exception of police, military, and humanitarian flights were canceled, marking the first time that Canada shut down its airspace. As a result of Operation Yellow Ribbon, 255 aircraft were diverted to 17 different airports across the country.
Canada In Afghanistan
The number of Canadian Forces' fatalities resulting from Canadian military activities in Afghanistan is the largest for any single Canadian military mission since the 25th Canadian Brigade suffered 309 combat-related deaths (and approximately 145 non-combat deaths in-theatre) in the Korean War between 1950 and 1953. A total of 140 Canadian Forces personnel have been killed since the mission began in 2002.
Still think they're all Commies?
Really? The English speakers, the French speakers, the Muslims and the Natives. How exactly does that differ from us with American English speakers, American Spanish speakers, the Muslims and the Natives?
Think before you type.
Just surprise him.
No, it puts unreasonable limits on the freedom of expression.
Has Annie commented yet on this letter?
Yeah, but it's a 'mention' like "Nice little place you got here...."
