If McVety is correct that the Toronto Pride parade contains “criminal activity” — and I think he has Section 174 on his side — then it seems odd to censure his comments, even if you don’t happen to like his general outlook on homosexuality. What we effectively have here is a religious Christian being driven off the air for doing little more than appealing to the provisions of our Criminal Code — not the Bible. He’s not even calling for the gays in question to be arrested. He’s just saying that we shouldn’t subsidize their event with taxpayer funds. When did that sort of speech become illegal?
