Coulter: ‘I Hope They Send the Royal Canadian Mounted Police After Me!’

That’s what The Blonde One said when I asked her about her Canadian campus tour, which has enraged the Canuckistani Thought Police and prompted University of Ottawa provost François Houle to send Coulter a letter:
We have a great respect for freedom of expression in Canada, as well as on our campus, and view it as a fundamental freedom, as recognized by our Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. I would, however, like to inform you, or perhaps remind you, that our domestic laws, both provincial and federal, delineate freedom of expression (or “free speech”) in a manner that is somewhat different than the approach taken in the United States.
I therefore encourage you to educate yourself, if need be, as to what is acceptable in Canada and to do so before your planned visit here. You will realize that Canadian law puts reasonable limits on the freedom of expression.
For example, promoting hatred against any identifiable group would not only be considered inappropriate, but could in fact lead to criminal charges.
Canadian campus wienies are wetting their pants. Of course, Ann Coulter always get that reaction from the campus Left, but the problem in Canada is that the junior Stalinists have the force of law behind them, as Mark Steyn knows all too well.
