    I have no real issues with this, as trannies might as well have the same protections as jews, blacks, women, natives, disabled.

    Free speech died in Canada decades ago when it became illegal to deny the holocaust.

    It died with Pierre Trudeau's not withstanding clause in the charter. The shitstain running the country now is finishing what his scumbag father started.

    Every politician who voted yes for this fucking bill should be referred to as the pronoun "dumbfuck".

    Fucking sad state of affairs. So if don't believe in more than 2 genders and I tell someone I don't, am I spreading "hate propaganda"? It's insanity. We're legislating insanity.

    Disappointing.

    LOL at him almost calling it bullshit around the 4:05 mark.

    He made everyone of them look like the fools they are and yet this thing still passes.

    They need to clearly define the harassment section with 'misgendering' someone. Denying them employment, rentals, food etc because they have gender dysphoria -- but people who do not use their desired pronoun because they have no idea what a zer or zee is shouldn't be brought up on harassment charges.

    If anything, this gives the conservatives another piece of ammo to take back parliament -- this shit use to be enough to urge a non confidence vote

    Edit* technically it hasn't passed final senate review and has not gone into assent yet. If that can be delayed to past June 23rd when parliament goes on break, it could have to go through the cycle again. So, there is still hope for amendments

    The notwithstanding clause allows govts to ignore such laws.

    First you say that that bill does not impinge on free speech.

    Then in the same post, you tell us that it is no illegally to verbally discriminate against someone passed on gender identity.

    Nice doublethink. "This does not limit your free speech. It just limits the things you can say"

    Honestly, I think he might have been better off hiding his powerlevel. He absolutely humiliated them on every point...which probably just embarrassed them and made them more entrenched/vindictive.

    Has this bill officially passed? I thought it was in the third reading.

    They can't hide how much they despise this guy. It was clear as day in their tone and the look on their faces.

    All because he spits that truth.

    I think it was just that they didn't know much about what it was they were passing, and aren't familiar with the underlying issues that Peterson was talking about.

    That 'I'm a free speech guy' was cringe worthy, trying to making a case about 'feelings' but it's obvious that Petersons points couldn't be reduced to such trivialities.

    So to me, it just seems like they hadn't put much thought into it, and they were talking to Peterson who has probably put thausands of hours and a professional background into it.

    @RhinoRush @Bald1, I'm going with "thon." Please be mindful, as I'd hate this to become an issue.

    Thanks.

    If you say you won't refer to trannies with their preferred pronoun, which can change daily, then yes you may be looking at a substantial fine.
