Check this excerpt from Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff's book True Patriot Love:
America and Canada are both free nations. But our freedom is different: There is no right to bear arms north of the 49th parallel, and no capital punishment, either; we believe in collective rights to language and land, and, in our rights culture, these can trump individual rights. Not so south of the border. Rights that are still being fought for south of the border — public health care, for example — have been ours for a generation.
What Ignatieff is essentially saying is that our freedom is that we have no freedom.
It's sad that this is what passes for "Liberal" these days.
