Paul Fromm speaks about the Parliament Ban

 

 

 

 

FOR OUR PEOPLE. A weekly show by Canada's leading free speech advocate - Paul Fromm.

OTTAWA, October 17, 2007. This afternoon, by unanimous consent, the House of Commons past a motion banning free speech activists Alexan Kulbashian and Paul Fromm. Director of the Canadian Association for Free Expression from the House of Commons. The ban was put in place to thwart a press conference scheduled for Friday at 1:30 in the Charles Lynch Room of the Parliamentary Press Gallery.

Hansard records: "By unanimous consent, it was ordered, 'That this House order that Alexan Kulbashian and Paul Fromm be denied admittance to the precincts of the House of Commons during the present Session to preserve the dignity and integrity of the House.'"

"MPs have acted with stunning arrogance and disregard for free speech," Fromm charged. "After all, it's we taxpayers who foot the bill for this place. It's not their private little club. 'Parliament' from the French parler (to talk) should be a place of talk and free exchange of ideas, not of the sort of suppression more in keeping with the thuggish generals of Burma," he added.

"Our research shows that only five people have ever been banned from the House of Commons," Mr. Fromm explained. "The first was Louis Riel who led an armed rebellion against the Dominion Government in the 19th century. The other four were critics of the Canadian Human Rights Commission. Controversial publisher Ernst Zundel and his lawyer Doug Christie were banned from the precincts of the House of Commons in 1998 when they sought to hold a press conference to complain that the Canadian Human Rights Commission does not consider truth a defence against charges of hate."

Books won't stay banned. They won't burn. Ideas won't go to jail. In the long run of history, the censor and the inquisitor have always lost. The only sure weapon against bad ideas is better ideas.

Censorship reflects a society's lack of confidence in itself.
