Taking on gag laws

Ready for a non-Julie Couillard related story?

If you are, check out a column I have in today's National Post.

It's the latest chapter in my crusade to oppose election gag laws and to protect free political speech.

In this case, I explain why gag laws are wrong for British Columbia and Alberta.

Apparently, the $2million spent on attack ads by unions had no affect on the outcome of the election.

That is your point, isn't it?

set you free, whether or not it had an impact is not important. That a polititian or party can silence anyone, is important.

I suppose it is possible Stelmach and Williams know what's best for us. Imagine what would happen if we did not have these wise people protecting us from what other people have to say about them, or any issue for that matter.
