Canada is at a cross-road, at a critical junction in finding the appropriate balance between freedom of expression and hate speech. It is no coincidence that the majority of cases at the center of this debate directly deal with issues and populations that relate to Canada’s military mission in Afghanistan. Portrayal of minorities by the media has played an important role in the development of stereotypes during conflicts, and is often associated with propaganda.
Canadian society was not merely an innocent bystander in the propaganda wars of the past century, as such, it was not immune from such participation, and violation of minority rights through one-sided messages occurred here as well. This pattern of minority degradation continues to the present day, albeit in a less grandiose and explicit manner, and its insidious effects are readily observable in society today.
