LILLEY: Trudeau defends free speech as long as it’s not offensive

I don’t think Justin Trudeau, or any prime minister for that matter, should go around needlessly poking religious groups in the eye and saying offensive things to them. That said, he should be willing to stand and say clearly that it is the right of any and every Canadian to do just that. The fact that Trudeau has failed to do so three times in the last week tells me he doesn’t actually believe in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which guarantees Freedom of Expression to every Canadian. I happen to have rather negative thoughts about the Prime Minister, his actions and his abilities on a daily basis. Should I not express them because they might hurt someone? Or maybe does this just apply to religion and one religion in particular?
