Canadian Political Prisoner Brad Love Spends 65th Birthday in Jail, Denied Bail for Non-Violent Communications With Snowflake Politicians
September 7, 2023. CAFE heard from political prisoner Brad Love today. He’s now being held in the Edmonton Remand Centre. He was arrested on August 23. In woke, snowflake Canada today, calling or writing to a public body with a strong message of protest is considered “harassment” by the vulnerable dears. One charge refers to a letter Mr. Love sent last year to the Fort McMurray Mayor’s Committee on Drag Queens. Two other counts arise from phone calls to his MP and to a native affairs group.
Instead of being granted bail on these non-violent charges, Mr. Love’s bail on a previous similar charge was cancelled and he was denied bail on the recent charges. He was transferred to the Edmonton Remand Centre. He is allowed only five phone calls a month.
Today, at another hearing, he learned that the Crown intends to proceed by indictment, as opposed to summarily. This would allow a harsher sentence for the prolific letter writer. He’s accused of mailing “obscene material” in the mail.
“This is absurd,” Paul Fromm, Director of the Canadian Association for Free Expression scoffs, “the letters were political, not sexual.” Mr. Love’s letters to politicians also included copies of The Free Speech Monitor and The Canadian Immigration Hotline.
Mr. Love will be back in Edmonton Court on September 11 and 12. CAFE has put him in touch with an experienced lawyer.
In further bad news on his birthday, CAFE learned that his longtime landlord wants him out as soon as possible. The landlord, apparently, is fed up having his house, which Mr. Love shares with several other tenants, frequently searched by police — three times this year already.
