Official notice was just sent out that tomorrow’s ‘Draw anything you want event’ at Parliament Hill in Ottawa Canada was officially cancelled. The email with what scant details are available is below.
The cancelation of this event however raises a very frightening question. Who exactly makes the laws in Canada, if an event can take place or not based on the preferences of one group acting illegally and with threat of deadly force at the federal capital buildings of Canada. This is a black day for national sovereignty in the free world and Canada especially indeed.
Draw Muhammed Day event cancelled at last minute
After having been given (last week) the go ahead with the Draw Muhammed Day on Parliament Hill for tomorrow, 20th of May, by the RCMP security people, I have just received a phone call (at 5:25 pm) from Canadian Heritage cancelling the event due to ‘security concerns’.
The Canadian Heritage representative said he was unable to give me further details regarding the last minute cancellation and said no appeal was possible.
Such is the state – or lack thereof – of free speech in Canada.
Thanks to all of you who helped spread the word about the planned event – please, let your contacts know that, at this late an hour, our freedom of speech has been cancelled.
