Library of Parliament Background Paper on Anti-hate Laws

The most recent issue of the Weekly Checklist of Canadian Government Publications lists a revised edition of a Library of Parliament paper on Canada's anti-hate laws and freedom of expression.

In  particular, the document looks at proposed changes to s.13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act. That section makes it a discriminatory practice to communicate by phone or Internet any message likely to expose someone to hatred or contempt by reason of their belonging to an identifiable protected group.

The Weekly Checklist includes a listing of titles made available by the Parliament of Canada, federal departments, and Statistics Canada to the Depository Services Program for distribution to a network of Depository Libraries in Canada and abroad.
