Video and Analysis: Supreme Court upholds Canada’s hate speech laws



February 27, 2013

A brief legal analysis has been added as an attachment to this article (below). In short, the Court has tightly reigned in the hate speech prohibitions in Human Rights Codes but has ruled that, as long as they are carefully and strictly applied, they are justifiable and constitutional limits on freedom of expression. The entire decision is 98 pages long, so there is more to this case than that. Check out the analysis for more.

Update: Watch ARPA’s Legal Counsel on Global News discussing the case here.
