On September 3, the JCCF sent a letter to Alberta’s Minister of Justice and Solicitor General, Mr. Jonathan Denis, urging him to introduce legislation to amend Alberta’s Human Rights Act. Currently, Section 3 of the Act uses broad language to empower the government of Alberta to limit the right of Albertans to speak openly on controversial matters. Section 3 limits speech far beyond the legal limits imposed by Canada’s Criminal Code, where such restrictions belong.
