A small victory in the war against violent hate or a slippery slope to censorship?
I do not have answers to, what is at its core, a very complicated question. I wish I did.
Anti-racism protesters, pictured Aug. 23, 2017, outside the U.S. Embassy in Ottawa. Is hate in the eye/ear of the beholder? Should we just follow the U.S. lead where that nation’s first amendment protects pretty much everything? I am not so sure Canadians would be okay with that. We do not have a lot of time to ponder this challenge. We will see more acts of terrorist violence that grew out of hateful views, writes Phil Gurski.
