Canada blasphemy laws are a thing of the future.Note to those who have been complaining that Quebec is not Canada: First of all, last time we looked that is where it was, and second of all, these kind of prosecutions have been occurring in other provinces as well. The trials of Mark Steyn and Ezra Levant are also cited in the article. We love Canada but it seems to be having a problem that doesn’t want to go away. Respectfully, the Editors.
Think back twenty years and imagine that someone then had told you that developed Western democracies would spend the first decades of the twenty-first century introducing new blasphemy laws. “You mean ‘repealing’ surely?” your wise younger self would probably have said. And if you had been persuaded that, no, new blasphemy laws really were going to be brought into effect in the not-too-distant future, doubtless your follow-on question would have been, “So how did the Spanish inquisition manage to make such a comeback?”
