Storseth "Free Speech" Bill Unlikely To Pass

 The story's claim of all-party criticism of the bill is overblown, as the only Tory they could find to speak out was Senator Nancy Ruth.  Nevertheless, I think Joe Comartin is correct when he says:

“The Prime Minister, on more than one occasion, seemed to indicate to the media that he was not in favour of doing away with it,” Comartin says. “There are a number of different communities – the Jewish community, the Islamic community in Canada – are very opposed to that being done away with.”

Certainly the gov's official response to the bill thus far is to pretend that it doesn't exist.

How long has it been since the loony right has been insisting that Harper wants to remove SectIon 13?
