Score one for the Commies

Looks like the Commies scored a triumph over the federal government.

Back in 1993 the government tried to pass a law which would have, for all and intents and purposes, put smaller parties out of business.

But the Communist Party challenged it in the courts and won.

The Supreme Court of Canada ruled the law was unconstitutional because it infringed on free speech.

Well now the government has finally settled out of court.

Now I am no fan of the Communists but I supported their effort in this case.

The more voices voters can hear during an election the better.

I will be talking about this morning on the Richard Cloutier Show on CJOB radio at about 10:30 Eastern time.

I agree all parties regardless of whether I agree with their views or not should have the right to be heard.

They have a right to express their views. Giving someone the right to be heard means that all others have a duty to listen.

Actually, Matt, you're dead wrong. Freedom of choice works both ways. They have a right to express their views. No one has the "duty" to listen. All others have the equal right to tune out whomever they wish for whatever reason they wish.
