BRITISH COLUMBIA (INTELLIHUB) — Press For Truth founder and filmmaker Dan Dicks appeared on The Shepard Ambellas Show Tuesday, where he spoke about a newly passed bill in Canada that criminalizes the improper use of somebody’s pronoun.
“It’s getting absolutely insane, some of the legislation that they are putting in place here in Canada, it’s getting really, really, bad,” the Canadian journalist explained.
Bill C-16 was passed on Oct. 18, 2017, and will soon become law after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s feminist administration forced transgender issues down the general public’s throat.
“This is a piece of legislation that would criminalize you for improperly using someone’s preferred pronoun,” Dicks explained. “I’m not even joking. You can go to jail for this in Canada.”
“So basically, if you see a transgender unicorn riding down the street on a broomstick and you, like, make a comment then all of a sudden you will be like imprisoned over it, or something?” Intellihub founder and radio talk show host Shepard Ambellas asked.
“Yeah, if you call that person wants to be — if you call them a he or a her and he wants to be identified as a vice versa or a unicorn or something, whatever, then that is a hate crime here in Canada,” Dicks replied.
Bill C-16 was sponsored by liberal Jody Wilson-Raybould.
According to the official summary, the bill “amends the Canadian Human Rights Act to add gender identity and gender expression to the list of prohibited grounds of discrimination.”
The enactment also amends the Criminal Code to extend the protection against hate propaganda set out in that Act to any section of the public that is distinguished by gender identity or expression and to clearly set out that evidence that an offence was motivated by bias, prejudice or hate based on gender identity or expression constitutes an aggravating circumstance that a court must take into consideration when it imposes a sentence.
