CHOI-FM - Free Expression loses to the CRTC
From Ad IDEM / CMLA
July 13, 2004
Believers in Canada's Charter right to free expression cannot read the decision of the CRTC not to renew the licence of CHOI-FM without considerable discomfort. Canadian values don't permit abusive, disrespectful language, at least on-air. Facts don't appear to matter. Vague prohibitions are relied on as the foundation for silencing speech. Surely the Charter guarantee of free expression guarantees more exact standards than this. Chilling reading.
