Ann Coulter Warned to Watch Her Words by University of Canada; Coulter Says University "Promoting Hatred Against Conservatives"

Here is an email sent to conservative Ann Coulter by the Provost of the University of Canada warning her to "weigh her words" so as not to offend anyone. The Provost cited Canada's Hate Crimes Law which puts "reasonable limits on the freedom of expression." Coulter is scheduled to speak at the University of Canada today.

For her part, Coulter responded in her classic way!

"Now that the provost has instructed me on the criminal speech laws he apparently believes I have a proclivity (to break), despite knowing nothing about my speech, I see that he is guilty of promoting hatred against an identifiable group: conservatives," Coulter wrote in an e-mail to the Ottawa Citizen Monday. The Citizen had requested a telephone interview with Coulter, but instead received the e-mail from the author.

She questioned whether every speaker booked at the university receives a similar warning, or just the conservative ones.

"The provost simply believes and is publicizing his belief that conservatives are more likely to commit hate crimes in their speeches. Not only does this promote hatred against conservatives, but it promotes violence against conservatives," Coulter wrote.

She added she will ask the human rights commission to investigate, but didn't specify which one.

"I was hoping for a fruit basket upon my arrival in Canada, not a threat to criminally prosecute me," Coulter said. . . . MORE
Below is video of a Canadian Lawyer and free speech advocate - Douglas Christie - speaking to the restrictions placed on freedom of speech in Canada, a perfect example of Political Correctness run amok:

I agree with most of what Christie has to say, though coming from someone who's been the lawyer for pretty much every Nazi or White Supremicist who's come to trial in Canada in the past 25 years, I don't know that I'd want him to be a posterboy for free speech, the defender of groups who actually do promote hate.
