Earlier this week, the Trudeau Liberals unveiled their latest, and most dangerous, attack on free speech: Bill C-63, the 'online harms' bill. The extreme measures laid out by the bill are so puzzling that political commentators like Scott Adams, who even saw evidence of what the bill included, can't believe it's actually real.

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms president John Carpay joined the show to further analyze Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's new attempts to stifle Canadians' speech.

Digging into the worst aspect of the legislation, John told Ezra how dangerous the 'online harms' bill's new standalone 'hate crime' amendment to the Criminal Code could be:

The judges already have the authority that if a crime — property damage, assault, whatever — is motivated by hate, the judge can impose a more severe sentence. That's already on the books.

That gets back to this grandstanding of, 'oh we need a new standalone hate crime' — no.

It's one thing to have a stiffer penalty where there is evidence a crime is motivated by hate, but you have to actually be found guilty and then you can get a higher penalty.

But a standalone 'hate crime' is just Orwellian.
