This Sunday, the 13th of September, I will be holding a Free Speech Wall event on Ottawa’s Parliament Hill between 1 and 3 pm.
Everyone is welcome!!!
However, a number of people have contacted me, saying they cannot make it for logistical reasons.
A number of people have also contacted me, saying they will not come because the security on The Hill is handled by the RCMP, and with Bill C-51 looming ‘out there’, they fear they might come up on the RCMP’s ‘radar’ and be in danger because of that legislation…
To top this off, my very even-keeled, engineer husband keeps stressing to me that he hopes I make it through this even without getting myself killed….
Yes, we have come to the point in our society where even ‘normal’ people worry that expressing support for Freedom of Speech will get a person arrested or killed!!!
Is this really the society we want to leave to our children?!?!?
If you will be unable – or unwilling – to attend the event on Sunday due to fears for your safety, please, leave your message in the comments, I will print it out, and post it on the wall anonymously on your behalf.
