The Liberals’ 2021 election platform commits to banning online “hate speech” in the first 100 days of Justin Trudeau’s reelected government. This will likely be a revival of Bill C-36, which died when the election was called.

In this special edition of True North’s The Andrew Lawton Show, we talk about why the government’s efforts to go after so-called hate speech are actually restrictions on free speech. Joining the show are lawyers Lisa Bildy of Libertas Law and Sarah Miller of JSS Barristers, as well as Quillette editor Jonathan Kay.

A Canadian broadcaster and columnist, Andrew serves as a journalism fellow at True North and host of The Andrew Lawton Show.

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.
