Maxime Bernier, Leader of the People’s Party of Canada, says all the major political parties are in favour of curbing free speech. Here’s a note he sent out yesterday to his supporters.
Attacks against free speech continued this week in Ottawa. And they come from all the other parties. It started when Andrew Scheer kicked out his MP Michael Cooper from the justice committee for speaking his mind. Then the Liberals and NDP voted to erase what he said from parliamentary records.
They are rewriting history, just like in the novel 1984! The Conservatives did not even oppose this. Then all parties voted to remove the video feed when defenders of free speech appeared before the justice committee. They don’t want you to hear these arguments!
Meanwhile, Trudeau wants to force social media companies to curtail free speech on their platforms. [Supporter], it’s getting really serious. There is no democracy without free speech.
All week long, I was the only politician in Ottawa pushing back against these attacks. I need your support.
