No Apologies has the story:
In our last edition of Culture Watch, we heard from Stephen Boissoin about how he was levied with $7,000 in fines and ordered to apologize and cease expressing his views on homosexuality, all because of one letter to the editor, which was also curiously blamed for motivating a subsequent gay bashing incident. That’s the Kafkaesque scenario he, as an Alberta youth minister, found himself in after he wrote the letter to the Red Deer Advocate newspaper in 2002. He was hauled before a human rights commission and convicted of hate speech over the letter. However, the matter is now before the Alberta Court of the Queen’s Bench, which is considering his appeal that the ruling violated his right to free expression as guaranteed by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
Listen on this edition to the remainder of his presentation before a meeting of the Niagara branch of the Association for Reformed Political Action, an organization associated with Reformed churches in Canada, which took place at Covenant Canadian Reformed Church in Grassie, just outside Hamilton. It includes a question-and-answer session with the audience.
