How comfortable are any Canadian parents with the idea that comments they have made, no matter how odious, on a web site, could be used as a weapon against them in the state’s tool box for ‘child protection’?
Today, it is ‘racist’ comments that have allegedly warranted the seizure of children from their parents.
Tomorrow, it could be bad jokes, one’s children being overweight, parents being smokers, or having other political views that are considered by the righteous left as unpalatable (hello rightwingers, “neo-cons”, Jewish and Christian Zionists, and other assorted mainstream heterosexuals out there). How about recycling? What if parents refuse to inculcate their children with acceptable Gaia-based orthodoxy? What then?
