Free Speech in Canada? Don’t Believe It — Open your mouth and you Lose Your Job?
Guest speaker Paul Fromm Returns: Free Speech in Canada?
Thursday, July 23, 2015
7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Price: CAD8.00/per person
Paul Fromm gave us a dynamic and entertaining lecture on May 3rd! Paul will return to tell us how political correctness for the past 30 years has threatened poverty to people who express controversial opinions on their own time, off the job. This topic is very relevant to our Organizer, Brian Ruhe who was just fired on July 3rd from his teaching job at Capilano University because of his free speech in his YouTube videos.
Paul has a long history going back to the 1960’s in political activism and free speech issues.
Paul Fromm heads the Canada First Immigration Reform Committee and the Canadian Association for Free Expression, Canada’s leading defender of free speech. He has battled Canada’s Internet censors and supported political prisoners Brad Love, Terry Tremaine, Arthur Topham and David Irving.
His free speech work has made him the object of arson and death threats from the ARA, who staged a protest outside his Port Credit home in 2006. As part of state pay-back for his free speech work, he has been routinely hassled by Canada Customs, and had books, including Irish Fairy Tales, seized as possible “hate propaganda.”. Customs also seized his laptop on suspicion of containing “hate.”
An author and former English instructor, Mr. Fromm was fired from his position by the Peel Board of Education in 1997, after years of pressure from Jewish lobby groups who hated his support for victims of censorship and his opposition to the Third World invasion of Canada. In 2014, Mr. Fromm ran for mayor of the city of Mississauga, population 720,000, on a campaign of opposition to immigration, the undisputed cause of traffic gridlock, the number one issue for voters in the city.
