This is hate speech par excellence!
A Facebook Page, Montreal Official, portrays incoming Quebec premier Pauline Marois as Adolph Hitler, and as asks: “How long will it take her to fuck up Quebec?” If you thought that wasn’t insulting and un-Canadian enough, try imagining 133 172 people “liking” the page.Now, compare the photo-shopped image with the one below. Our (Rob) Ford, the (Lord) Mayor of Toronto, a rabid right-wing, poses with Jon Latvis, a member of the neo-Nazi band RAHOWA (Racial Holy War). The photo is also available on Latvis’ Facebook profile, with the caption, “Me meeting with Toronto’s Mayor, Rob Ford to get an endorsement for the Latvian Homeguard — at Toronto City Hall.”
Finally, In early June, Canada’s white supremacists saluted Prime Minister Stephen Harper, after his acquiescing Conservative majority in the House of Commons passed Bill C-304, a private members’ bill sponsored by Alberta Conservative backbencher, Brian Storseth. The bill repeals Canada’s hate speech laws. It scraps Section 13 of the Human Rights Act, which bans Internet or telephone-based hate speech. It strips the Human Rights Commission of its ability to rule on hate speech cases.
