Canada Crushes Free Speech Again

A Canadian woman has been fined and ordered to stop posting on a US-based website saying ugly things about minority groups:

A Canadian Human Rights Tribunal has ordered a Calgary woman to stop posting hate messages against minority groups on a U.S.-based white supremacist website.

The commission fined Jessica Beaumont $1,500 for posting messages that hold Jews, gays, lesbians, Chinese, blacks, aboriginals and other non-whites up for hatred or contempt.

Yes, the speech is vile. So what. The government still has no business telling her she can’t speak her mind, no matter how vile it may be.
