The Trudeau government wants to ban critical thinking and criminalize uncomfortable questions about Canada’s residential school program.
According to a recent Canadian Press article, the author of a government report on residential schools is urging MPs to ban so-called “denialism” – a vague term that no one seems to be able to define.
The report itself hasn’t even been released – we’re told it won’t be released until next year – and yet, the report’s author is already demanding MPs pass a bill to ban speech she doesn’t agree with.
What will this mean for journalists who ask questions and want corroborating evidence to back claims of alleged atrocities at residential schools?
What will happen to academics like Dr. Tom Flanagan and Dr. C.P. Champion who have a forthcoming book published by True North about the truth behind the residential school program?
What inconvenient facts get scrubbed from the record, like the fact that despite many excavations, no human remains have ever been found in the places we were told bodies were buried?
Will our coverage at True North, our news reports and our books soon get banned?
What does it say about our country when groups can level shocking allegations – that Canada ran literal death camps and that our school system committed genocide – and we are not allowed to ask questions, or even ask for evidence?
On today’s episode of the Candice Malcolm Show, Candice dissects the issue and asks the uncomfortable questions that may soon be illegal.
