So you think people who push the boundaries of a law show that the law is heading in a bad direction?
Regardless of where the boundary is set, some people will push the boundary in one direction (by promoting hatred) while others will push it in the other direction (by suing in situations that aren't "obvious" hatred).
I think the outcome is extremely relevant. Why would it not be?
Personally I agree that the complaint went too far, but then I don't think religions should necessarily be protected to the same degree as say, gender or race, since religion is (in theory) chosen freely.On October 10, 2008, the tribunal dismissed the complaint, stating that the Maclean's article did not violate the province's hate speech law
