Please write to support free speech in Canada
*Professor Anthony Hall of the University of Lethbridge has been vilified in the Lethbridge Herald for thinking and speaking freely about controversial events – especially on False Flag Weekly News.
You can write to the University of Lethbridge http://www.uleth.ca/vp-academic/contact and the Lethbridge Herald http://lethbridgeherald.com/forms/letters/letter.php to freely express yourself. If you think Prof. Hall's research on controversial issues is precisely what a fearless and open academy SHOULD be doing, you might suggest that the University help develop a program specifically devoted to such lines of inquiry, perhaps by turning the Globalization Studies Program (Prof. Hall's bailiwick) into the first North American program that systematically devotes itself to these issues.
*Violinist Monika Schaefer has been targeted for verbal abuse, including a hate speech complaint, for making the video "Sorry Mom I Was Wrong About the Holocaust." Whether or not you agree with her interpretation of historical events – and you cannot have an informed opinion without researching the controversy, not just imbibing orthodoxy – it is obvious that the video in question is not hateful.
Jasper's Fitzhugh newspaper published an attack piece targeting Monika Schaefer, then censored her reply. Should the Fitzhugh allow victims of attack journalism to respond freely? You can speak freely on this question to Fitzhugh editor Paul Clark email@example.com and publishers Robert Doull firstname.lastname@example.org and Linda Bolton email@example.com.
*Toronto-area teacher Nadia Shoufani is under police investigation for stating that victims of occupation have the right to resist. This is the established position of international law. If you think Canadians should have the right to agree with international law, please explain this to the Peel District School Board: Communications & Community Relations Support Services General Inquiries: 905-890-1010 ext. 2809
You may also wish to explain this point to the Hate Speech Detail of the Toronto Police Department: Police Officers of the Hate Crime Unit can be reached through Intelligence Services at: (416) 808-3500
And while you are on the line, you may wish to lodge complaints against the individuals and groups using hateful rhetoric against Nadia Shoufani.
