That's because we don't have free speech in Canada. You can't go around saying or doing what you like especially things that are harmful.

To anyone bitching about (or planning to bitch about) this going against freedom of speech, section one of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms legally allows the government to limit an individual's Charter rights.

In Canada we realize that absolute 100% freedom isn't always a good thing.

Everyone saying that Canada is denying free speech, get over yourselves.

Free Speech is a right, but the moment the free speech involves harassment, discrimination or hatred directed towards a group or person, the government can come down on you for it.

If it weren't the case, racial slurs and insults wouldn't be considered discrimination.

Besides, who wants a bunch of assholes like that in their country?
I don't care much for their hate speeches or whatever, but the whole protesting funerals pisses me off. It may not be against the law but it sure as hell is a great lack of respect and really something you just don't do.

So, Canada banned them because they can enter their country and express their opinions. Wonderful, such a progressive and modern decision.

you are allowed to have your freedom of speech, but as soon as it incites intolerance or hatred, the government is legal allowed to take it away from you.

Not really, I live in Canada and its a crime or just really frowned upon but you still get fined either way I don't fully remember and too lazy to look but you cannot promote hate to a certain degree, you literally cannot bash same sex couples, different ethnicities , homeless, poor and such. I think its something to do about Canada being multicultural whilst America is a "melting pot" for all citizens to immigrants to refugees, For example you can see the a huge amount of diversity all living together with their traditional backgrounds all together. It is an amazing thing. But I think its great that Canada takes after hate, it definitely leads to a lot of disastrous routes so a precaution is a lot better .....You can obviously make jokes in Canada, but in reality and overall we can really tell when someone is serious by their tones and expressions.

TLDR: you should read.

I seem to be in the minority here....not being impressed with Canada's speech protections.

#192 to #183 - angelusprimus (06/16/2013) [-]
Canadian free speech protections follow the rule of common sense.
Its not absolute.
If you are deliberately using your right to free speech to emotional abuse others, then your right of free speech ends and their right to not be abused starts.
Common sense is "You have right to say those hateful things in your own home, and even make websites but you do not have right to do it at a funeral to mourning parents."

Because who needs free speech, right? If we don't like what people are saying we can just ignore their rights, right? A GREAT DAY FOR DEMOCRACY

Actually I think the reason for their ban is not because of their beliefs, but they are probably kicked out because Canada realizes they are basically a domestic terrorist group. They break basic laws such as harassment, disorderly conduct, and causing public disturbances. They do cause alot of trouble and I believe that is why Canada is not allowing them in, not due to their beliefs.

Canada has also explicitly banned Generals of the Indian Armed forces who have served in Kashmir, and are accused of torture, rape, mass murders, ethnic cleansing, and restricting the freedoms of the people of Kashmir.

I am actually kind of disappointed in Canada for doing this.
The reason that the United States has free speech is so that no opinion can be silenced by the will of the Government, especially the opinions that are unpopular. If Canada and the UK can silence the WBC's message, they can silence any message that disagrees with their viewpoint, and that is not how Freedom works.
I do not agree with the WBC, I think what they do is an insult to both gays, Christians, and Americans everywhere, but I still believe that they have the freedom to say what they please as long as they do not infringe upon the rights of others.

tl;dr: Just because we disagree with them does not mean they should be legally silenced.

There's this thing called a HATE CRIME AND IT'S ILLEGAL
If they commit these crimes the government can **** them up if they wish, it's no longer a matter of free speech
