Quebec’s Proposed Imposition of Blasphemy Laws Will Affect Us All - Kyle Shideler - Townhall

Wow!  How can this be possible? That even "criticism" of Islam (an idea), will be punished. While no doubt criticism of any other religion, or indeed of atheism, will be a crime??
While Canada is currently in the throes of an early election, in the province of Quebec there's growing debate over the future of free speech. The Quebec Parliament is currently debating whether to pass Bill 59, a bill that would grant the Quebec Human Rights Commission (QHRC) the authority to investigate so-called "hate speech", even without a complaint being filed. 
The Head of the QHRC, Jacques Frémont has already openly said that he plans to use such powers, "to sue those critical of certain ideas, 'people who would write against … the Islamic religion … on a website or on a Facebook page'" according to Canada's National Post.
