A brief and petty post: it's time to retire the "Canada has no freedom of speech/First Amendment" nonsense. Here's the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
Fundamental freedoms 2. Everyone has the following fundamental freedoms: (a) freedom of conscience and religion; (b) freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication; (c) freedom of peaceful assembly; and (d) freedom of association.
It's a bit more complex than that, since certain limitations are accepted on these freedoms, but it's absurd to deny the very existence of such a freedom.


Canadians have freedom of thought?! Wow, USA-ians don't even have that.
No, but they can have the right to freedom of thought.

...Where's the fetus going to gestate? You going to keep it in a box?
In the nose. Surely it'll come from the right nostril...
My right, or your right??
Wait, what fetus? (Haha, sorry, it was late at night and the advil PM was kicking in...)
As in, 'Sweet Loretta Martin thought she was a woman, but she was another man?'
