Canada’s federal government is set to make it a criminal offense to make a statement denying the Holocaust took place or condoning or downplaying the killing of Jews by the Nazi regime, except in a private conversation. Ministers are rushing to change the Criminal Code by inserting the huge limitation on speech into the budget. Canada will join a string of European countries, including Germany, Greece, France, Belgium and the Czech Republic, which have already prohibited Holocaust denial. A similar bill proposes up to two years in prison. The budget set aside more than $70 million for initiatives benefiting Canada’s Jewish community.

Canada already had a similar law and tried to prosecute Ernst Zundel, author of Did Six Million Really Die?, twice for publishing ‘false news’ in violation of Section 181 of Canada’s Criminal Code. After numerous legal battles, the Supreme Court of Canada struck down the country’s laws against spreading false news as a violation of free speech.

The federal government is set to make it a criminal offence to make a statement denying the Holocaust took place or condoning or downplaying the killing of Jews by the Nazi regime, except in a private conversation.

Ministers plan to use a bill enacting the budget to swiftly change the Criminal Code, budget documents show.

The move to outlaw Holocaust denial comes as MPs and anti-hate groups warn about the rise of white-supremacism and antisemitism in Canada.

“Jewish Canadians comprise one per cent of the Canadian population yet are the target of 62 per cent of all religiously motivated hate crimes,” said Richard Marceau, vice-president of the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs. “We live in a time of rising antisemitism.”

Canada will join a string of European countries, including Germany, Greece, France, Belgium and the Czech Republic, which have already prohibited Holocaust denial.

Six million Jews were systematically killed in Nazi-occupied Europe while Hitler was in power, along with other groups, such as Roma.

“Holocaust denial and distortion constitute a cruel assault on memory, truth, and justice — an antisemitic libel to cover up the worst crime in history — and thereby a cruel and mocking rebuke to Holocaust survivors and their legacy,” said Irwin Cotler, the prime minister’s special envoy on preserving Holocaust remembrance and combating antisemitism.

The budget earmarked $5.6 million over five years to support Cotler’s office.

Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino said “there is no place for antisemitism and Holocaust denial in Canada.”

“That’s why we’ve pledged to prohibit the wilful promotion of antisemitism through condoning, denying or downplaying the Holocaust,” Mendicino added. “The Holocaust was one of the darkest chapters in human history. We must preserve its memory, combat contemporary antisemitism and be unequivocal when we say: never again.”

The government move to change the law follows the introduction by Saskatoon Tory MP Kevin Waugh of a private member’s bill prohibiting Holocaust denial earlier this year.

Waugh said the government proposal was “word for word” the same as in his bill and he was surprised to see it in the budget.

But the Conservative MP said having the government push through the law was a “win for everybody.”

“There is no place for racism in this country,” he said.

Waugh said he would not withdraw his bill, which has its second reading debate at the end of April in the Commons, even though banning Holocaust denial will be part of the budget bill.

He said he wanted to ensure the change to the Criminal Code is enacted as soon as possible.

The budget does not say what the penalty would be for a person convicted of Holocaust denial. Waugh’s bill proposes up to two years in prison.

The NDP has said it will vote for the budget, under the terms of its confidence and supply pact with the Liberals, which will mean the bill will pass through the Commons.

Spot on. But they have a lot of Shabbos Goy helpers like the Trumps , the Obamas, the Clintons, the Bushes and from Congress right on down , all aiding and abetting them to secure a seat for themselves on the Zionist gravy train. More problematic are the ignorant masses who don’t have a clue. Try to inform them and they will attack the messenger rather than risk stepping outside the PC cultural comfort zone the jews media has enclosed around. They instinctively realize what might happen if they do. So the big wigs at the top don’t really have… Read more »

What is the root cause of anti-Semitism in Canada? I have lived here my whole life and in those 4+ decades I can tell you the Canada I grew up in as a child is long gone. Multi culturalism and an open border policy has resulted in entire cities almost entirely populated by individuals of a specific race, religion, or creed. Etobicoke a suburb of Toronto is almost entirely Sikh community, and their influence has resulted in the passing of Sharia law which goes against most core Canadian values. This country has been decimated by the false religion of multi… Read more »

There are legal scholars who claim Trudeau v1,0 pulled a coup d’etat with his “Charter of Rights”. Some of them go as far as to claim that immigration, under the original Constitution (BNA Act) was illegal. Auntie Shem-itism is the cause of everything is the mantra of those who own the Canadian political system – just as they own the governments of all (((Western liberal democracies))) especially the US You may be interested in this 15 year old article: https://www.jpost.com/Jewish-World/Jewish-News/Sacks-Multiculturalism-threatens-democracy

Don’t worry about Sharia law. That’s only in place for as long as it takes to break whitey. Then it will be NOAHIDE law.
Jews are running things, not Muslims.

How stupid are the voters of that once great nation. To make matters worse, was this clown elected on name recognition ? Girly man in appearance.

They’re no more ‘stupid’ than US citizens, half of which vote for communists now.
Drugs and decades of Hollywood, academia, advertising and jewish media propaganda have done their job.

Canadians did not vote for the NDP, yet they somehow are allowed to partner with the Liberal Party of Canada. This in itself shows just how messed up Canada is right now. IMO the only hope is if Western Canada separates and leaves that mental condition known as Eastern Canada and all their Globohomo policies – just a bad memory.

Obviously, you have no clue about how the Parliamentary system of government works. We elect MPs who may or may not be a member of a political party, not parties themselves. At one time, 50 years ago, I would have supported a separate Western Canada, until that movement was infiltrated by whackos that wanted to make it the 51st state of the US. While our current predicament has had a lot to do with the Liberal Party, it is the US Republican Party mentality trucked into Alberta then spread into “conservatives” across the country, that has played just as large… Read more »

In the name of ALL THAT IS, do you hear yourselves? Your system is obviously BROKEN, by your admission. Yet, you all seem to believe if your favorite TEAM gets control of the system again all will be better. Even though for the last century and a half both of your tribes have had at the helm and NOTHING has gotten better or reformed. HELLO, the problem can not be solved with the system that created the problem. I am also willing to bet 95% of you have NEVER even read your “LAW” AKA, Constitution. Hate the Jews, hate the… Read more »

“You can tell who runs a country by who you can’t criticize” , how does it go?
Anyway, that statement has been “debunked” also by the same ‘ministers’ of truth who are now rewriting history and trashing everything ‘white European’ to suit their jew world order.

A so-called Jew today is symbolic with the phrase “Reserved for Condemnation” as the crypto symphoizers destitute of competency.

But you can criticize until your out of breath. What I am trying to illuminate is to be MORE PRECISE. YES stereotypes do not occur because of ONE person, So…..please look at this from another point of view. Hating all Muslims because of the perverted efforts of a few extremist zealots IS exactly what the OLIGARCHS want you to do. Always having an enemy to fight and hate is straight out of Hitlers mouth. It props up the largest business in the history of the world, after prostitution of course, IS WARFARE and the money made waging it. WHO PROFITS… Read more »
