*JDL* ACTION – Tues, Jan. 10 @ 7 p.m. @ 15 Devonshire Place ~ Canada’s RIGHT OF FREE SPEECH


Tuesday, January 10

7:00 – 8:30 pm



George Ignatieff Theatre

 15 Devonshire Place



I (Meir Weinstein, National Director,Jewish Defence League of Canada) am very concerned about the direction of CIJA. There will be a Town Hall on January 10 put on by CIJA which will deal with the issue of Section 13. One of the key note speakers is Richard Warman. This man wants the video Fitna to be classified as hate. This would mean that the showing of ‘Third Jihad’, ‘Obsession’ and other videos that expose radical Islam would fall under the same classification. And this classification would be a danger to the Jewish Community. CIJA must have to answer. A Jewish Group must represent the Jewish People and not selfish individual interests.  

Information about CIJA Town Hall: 

Is the right to free speech absolute?  Where do we draw the line between speech that is merely offensive and speech that is worthy of prosecution?

Questions such as these will form the subject of an upcoming Town Hall debate between Nathalie Des Rosiers and Richard Warman regarding Section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act, the controversial hate speech provision.  The Town Hall, hosted by the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA), will take place on January 10, 2012 from 7:00-8:30pm at the George Ignatieff Theatre in Toronto.

Section 13 labels as a discriminatory practice, worthy of prosecution, for a person to communicate messages using telephone or Internet that may expose others “to hatred or contempt” because of their race, religion, ethnic group or other similar category.

At the Town Hall, Nathalie Des Rosiers, General Counsel for the Canadian Civil Liberties Association, will argue for the repeal of Section 13 and Richard Warman, one of Canada’s foremost human rights lawyers, will argue for its retention.   Community members are encouraged to attend this lively debate, question the experts, and help to shape policy on this important issue.

RSVP to the event

* * *The JDL will attend this Town Hall and intends to ask very direct questions to Richard Warman.  And it is vital that JDL force major Jewish Groups to cut their ties with the false left.  There are links on Richard Warman’s web site to groups and people that support ‘Israel Apartheid Week’.  Now is the time to cut the ties with the false left.

Freedom of Speech and Hate Speech in Canada

One Response to *JDL* ACTION – Tues, Jan. 10 @ 7 p.m. @ 15 Devonshire Place ~ Canada’s RIGHT OF FREE SPEECH

  1. Mortimer Tournbulle says:

    Hate speech is rooted in lies- “Israel Apartheid Week” is a week of lies in the tradition of Blood Libels. The facts are there for all to see and all who promote the myth of “Apartheid Israel” fail miserably the test of close scrutiny.

    Remember when Judge Richard Goldstone was awarded the Stockholm Human Rights Award for outstanding contribution to promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms”? Judge Goldstone was actually the first ever recipient of the Stockholm Human Rights Award and he was recognized and honored for his “extraordinary career” in human rights- an outspoken critic of apartheid in South Africa,lead prosecutor in several United Nations war crime tribunals, and the author of the Goldstone Report on war crimes that were allegedly committed in Gaza against the Palestinians.

    Seems like the voices of the supporters of Goldstone have become conveniently silent- wonder why ?

    “In an extraordinary article in the Washington Post, Richard Goldstone has now admitted that his infamous report was wrong. Having fuelled the blood libel that in Operation Cast Lead in Gaza Israel had targeted civilians and possibly had committed crimes against humanity, he now says that, as a result of the final report of the UN committee of independent experts and other evidence that has emerged since his report was published, he accepts that
    civilians were not intentionally targeted as a matter of policy and further states that if I had known then what I know now, the Goldstone Report would have been a different document.”

    Goldstone does not take responsibility for the Big Lie he helped perpetrate with such terrible consequences in putting rocket-fuel behind Israel’s delegitimisation as a pariah in the eyes of the world. Instead, he blames his false conclusions upon Israel’s refusal to co-operate with his inquiry.So for the second time, he is again blaming Israel for its own victimisation – first at the hands of Hamas, and now at his own hands.”


    Given the latter imagine what would happen if freedom of speech was equated with hate speech and laws against the right to free speech were given the green light?

    Expect that the laws would serve to protect the liars and punish those who fight for truth !

    The Goldstone fraud provides more than sufficient evidence to this fact!
