Michael,

Sorry I should have added that Canada now has Trudeau as we now have Turnbull, they did have Harper as we did have Mr Abbott.

Very similar circumstances.

I heard that they want a law in which if any remarks are made about Islam, it will be Blasphemy!

We are not far behind!

Liz , did you realise that in 2016 the ACT parliament made changes to the Discrimination Act. “Vilification on the grounds of religion is now illegal and in serious cases could result in a criminal conviction with a fine of up to $7500, under laws passed by the ACT parliament on Thursday.

Both Labor and Liberal supported the move put by the Greens Shane Rattenbury, who said the display of hatred, intolerance and offensive behaviour towards Muslims was one of the biggest intolerance issues in Australia today.

Thursday’s changes to the Discrimination Act also added disability to the list, so it is now illegal to vilify someone because of disability, religion, race, sexuality, gender identity, and HIV/AIDS status. Vilification can include social media posts, actions in a workplace and wearing clothes, signs or flags that would incite hatred, contempt, ridicule or revulsion.
