FUREY: Hate speech should not just be speech that you hate

True North's Anthony Furey says the debate on free speech will be very different this time around.

The debate on free speech is happening again.

But unlike 10 years ago when a contentious section of the Canadian human rights law was repealed and received bi-partisan support, the landscape is different now.

Social justice warriors, trigger warnings, safe spaces, microaggressions, etc. – these things didn’t exist 10 years ago.

True North’s Anthony Furey says it will be very different this time around.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
