Rex Murphy on "Iranium" & Free Speech

"It's becoming more and more the default position on free speech and public expression in Canada that if some group, small or large, mounts enough pressure or descends to ugly versions of protest, or simply shouts down the legitimate speaker, the authorities - government, bureaucracy, university, police - shut down the event, cancel the film or speech, and hand victory to the bullies and thugs or those who gin up some atmosphere of fear and menace."
