The right of hate speech in public in Canada gives the opportunity of a person to perform a protest against the thing he or she hates the most.
At 1991, Supreme Court of Canada had an election on hate speech in public. This election ended by letting the people to have a more robust defense of free speech which meant that hate speech was legal but Bruce Ryder says that the will of the Court was too “broad and imprecise”. “’At risk’ would be too weak a way to put it” says Prof. Moon, “Any tribunal that was asked to enforce those provisions subsequently would probably have to determinate that they were unenforceable.” An example would be the case of William Whatcott. William Whatcott, is a born anti-gay pamphleteer who also ran afoul of Saskatchewan’s Human Rights Code. At 2011, Whatcott’s case was argued and evasion was not the goal. During the court, Judge McLachlin questioned lawyers about of grasping a subjective emotion by an objective legal test. She also commented on the vagueness of such a serious law.
Although hate speech is not against the Saskatchewan Human Right’s Code, it contradicts with the right of enjoying the expression of opinions on the media.
