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.
#108 to #74 - anon (06/16/2013) [-]
true, but 100% freedom of speech is a good thing
#309 to #74 - anon (06/16/2013) [-]
No countries got 100% freedom. Okay, maybe Somalia. You Canadians are sure smart to to realize it isn't a good thing...

Now the thing is that you should be allowed to have opinions as long as you don't act on it. Being arrested for thinking fascism is the way to go or that one race is better than another is just harmful for the democracy. A goverment should discuss back, not use the laws in their favor if someone does something socially unacceptable by todays standards.

"People willing to trade their freedom for temporary security deserve neither and will lose both."  ~ Ben Franklin   
   
Learn to ignore those cunts, but you shouldn't take a step down a road that could POSSIBLY allow the banning of opposing viewpoints or actions, no matter how asinine.    
   
And, you could say that "Canada would never go that far" and I agree that they probably wouldn't. But nobody in 1930 expected Germany to conquer most of Europe and start a war that would kill 65 million world-wide.    
   
Just a thought and an opinion.

But Germany ended up becoming one of the most powerful economic superpowers of the world as a result (you know, before Russia ****** them up).

Plus there's nothing we can do about it, it's in the charter and it won't change.

Honestly, I don't know why people are getting soo fanny flustered, okay it's not 100%, but, Canada is a great place, the People are nice the weather sucks, and I don't have to worry too much about my personal security, because we restrict "certain" possibilities, just live and let live I guess, if people really wanted 100%, the states is just a border away.

Yes we do. Section two of the charter, fundamental freedoms.

Actually, you are. So long as the Walrus isn't alive and the Skull belongs to you. It's debatable at what level of decomposition the walrus needs to be in before it stops being necrophillia but sufficed to say, you can jam your dick into an empty animal skull and people would simply pass you off as a right weirdo.

Thought and expression is free speech dumbass, just can't be used in a hateful manor....HUR DUR WORDS ARE DIFFERENT SO NOT THE SAME AT ALL
#5 to #4 - WutzATroll (06/15/2013) [-]
True, but you can express anything you want, even if it is offensive.
User avatar #6 to #5 - godtherapist (06/15/2013) [-]
No you can't.

Sections 318, 319, and 320 of the Code forbid hate propaganda. "Hate propaganda" means "any writing, sign or visible representation that advocates or promotes genocide or the communication of which by any person would constitute an offence under section 319."
#7 to #6 - WutzATroll (06/15/2013) [-]
But you're allowed to say things people find offensive, unless it would incite hatred or fear
User avatar #8 to #7 - godtherapist (06/15/2013) [-]
Wrong again:

The Canadian Human Rights Commission DJ 4DM1Nisters the Canadian Human Rights Act.[9] Section 3 of the Act prohibits discrimination based on "race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, family status, disability and conviction for which a pardon has been granted." Section 13(1) addresses the issue of hate speech. The section states:
It is a discriminatory practice for a person or a group of persons acting in concert to communicate telephonically or to cause to be so communicated, repeatedly, in whole or in part by means of the facilities of a telecommunication undertaking within the legislative authority of Parliament, any matter that is likely to expose a person or persons to hatred or contempt by reason of the fact that that person or those persons are identifiable on the basis of a prohibited ground of discrimination.
Section 13(2) makes clear that posting hateful or contemptuous messages to the Internet is prohibited. Section 54(1) allows a Canadian Human Rights Tribunal to order a respondent to cease any discriminatory practice, to compensate the victim where the discrimination was wilful or reckless by an amount not exceeding $20,000, and to pay a penalty of not more than $10,000.

I don't know where you think you live but you can not do or say things that are offensive in Canada. It is against the law. WE HAVE NO FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

yes it is a bad thing, not because WBC is good but because trying to bury it is stupid. Its almost as if you are insulting your own people by acting like they might fall for this retardation if its isnt contained. Thats now the right approach, it needs to be brought out into the light to wither and die. Thats why we allow hate speech in America, not just because of muh freedoms.
WBC's retardation should be on full display, everyday, in everyway, god bless the USA!

We kinda do actually, the charter of rights a freedoms (which comes above all else in Canada) states we do, UNLESS it's hateful or discriminatory, but Section 1 states the government can kinda just ignore those rights....ish...sorta

I know, you're wrong though, thought and expression means free speech genius, we just have it in a way that it can't be hateful, I.E I can say I dislike the governments policies on such n such, not **** THA GOVERMENTS GONNA STAB HARPERS FACE

You're right Wutzatroll, this guy is just randomly yelling out sections of our legal system that he has poor understanding of, I said it somewhere else in this **** storm, you can say you dislike someone, you can say you hate the government or a group, you just can't infringe on that groups rights while doing so

User avatar #12 to #9 - Crusader (06/15/2013) [-]
The UK has just outlawed them.
The WBC is legitimately not allowed to do anything because of the Canadian Constitution.
You can do what you want, but it cannot discriminate against things you can't control like gender, ethnic origin, etc, your religious/spiritual beliefs, or your marital/family status.
Unless those things in themselves break that law.
You can't protest saying "Kill the gays"
But you can protest the protesters saying that.
#29 to #12 - aaronvan (06/16/2013) [-]
cant you control your spiritual beliefs though?
User avatar #34 to #29 - Crusader (06/16/2013) [-]
Yes and no.
It's written that way so you can't create a propaganda campaign against any group.
Not to mention you can only control your spiritual beliefs as much as your cultural beliefs, if you are raised in a certain religious group you are more likely to stay in that group, albeit by your own decisiveness, but at the same time because it's what you know.
User avatar #38 to #34 - snowshark (06/16/2013) [-]
Aye, it's a tricky slope as to where choice begins and ends. Many people who are religious do not see that they have a choice to believe or not simply because they have faith that what they believe is true.

It would be like asking you and me to stop believing in gravity. It is something so central to our views of the world that we simply do not feel it is questionable.

As such, spiritual beliefs are tricky things to deal with.
User avatar #41 to #38 - Crusader (06/16/2013) [-]
But, you can't just stop believing in gravity.
I mean it's something we can actually measure and **** .
User avatar #178 to #41 - snowshark (06/16/2013) [-]
The same is true to an extent of religious figures. They have their own means to justify their beliefs outside of scientific proof. The concept of no longer believing in gravity to you is the same to how religious people see their faiths.

To them they are just the facts of life. The earth spins. The sun burns. God watches.

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.

#311 to #292 - anon (06/16/2013) [-]
Who decides what is hate and what's not anyways? Isn't the harassment against Westboro Baptist Church hate, because it is socially acceptable? Is it okay to yell hateful things outside to house of a neo nazi, but not outside to house of homosexuals? And don't get me going on the whole racism things where black people somehow can't be racist to white people.

People should be allowed to say what they want by law, and not let the hiveminded society decide what's okay to hate on and what's not okay to hate on.

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.

All of these Free Speech arguments, now, I'm no American (nor Canadian for that matter) but I don't think Free Speech means you can harass people at funerals.    
They call themselves religious and yet they attempt to desecrate one of the worlds most religious ceremonies. (Yes I know that Atheists have funerals too, 			****		!)   
   
Aren't there laws in the USA against things like this? I haven't studied the laws of the USA (no, surprisingly schools in other countries don't reach us about your laws).   
   
It shouldn't be too long before they're banned from public displays, I'd think.

Picketing is protesting. In most cases nothing even needs to be done because local communities protest their protests and pretty much cancel them out. In my town they wanted to picket a funeral for a soldier who died over seas and a motorcycle gang showed up to drown out the noise they were making
