An Animal Farm moment in Canada.

A guy handed out flyers and put into mailboxes flyers that spoke against the gay lifestyle. Right or wrong you would, and should, say he has a right to his beliefs and the right to tell people.Canada seems to believe otherwise.
SASKATOON (CP) -- A Saskatchewan man has been ordered to pay $17,500 to four people after distributing flyers found to expose homosexuals to hatred and ridicule.

The decision was handed down May 2 by the Saskatchewan Human Rights Tribunal.

Between September 2001 and April 2002, William Whatcott distributed flyers in mailboxes that referred to homosexuals as sodomites, sharing "their filth and propaganda with Saskatchewan's children."
"expose homosexuals to hatred and ridicule" is far from handing out flyers. Unless they said "kill kill kill" then I do not see the hatred. Knowing the press if he had threatened violence they would have quoted it in bold type. Simply thinking their lifestyle is wrong is not hatred, it is individual thought. Something Canada seems to not like.

Then Government clone number 1 says this.
"It accomplishes what I wanted, which is to make some kind of a public statement about the fact that in Canada we are really a diverse population with lots of different beliefs and lots of different kinds of lifestyles and backgrounds," said Wallace.

"There are rules in our society in how we respect each other's rights and make sure that everybody has the right to their own lives and their own beliefs."
"The right to their own lives and their own beliefs" long as the government likes your "lives and beliefs", otherwise it is a crime and you get fined.

All are equal, but some are more equal
