Thank you for freedom of speech

 

Senator Beyak

We live in a time when discourse appears to have died. To speak against the prevailing opinion leaves one open to nothing but criticism. Freedom of speech appears to be a flag for only those who agree with everyone else.

Thank you for having the courage to say what you think. Please do not be bullied by the narrow-minded into backing down from what you have said.

Regardless of what stand I may personally have on the residential schools issue, you have a right, if not a duty as a representative of all Canadians, to express an opinion and not be vilified for it.
