M-103 is an affront to free speech

To Members of Parliament Iqra Khalid, Ron McKinnon, and Raj Grewal,

(cc: The Honourable Conservative Party Leader Rona Ambrose and New Democratic Party Leader Tom Mulcair)

I am writing you to express my deep misgivings and opposition to Motion M-103, titled "Systemic racism and religious discrimination."

This motion will encourage legislation that would criminalize speech deemed "islamophobic" and lay the groundwork for imposing what is essentially a Sharia anti-blasphemy law on all of Canada.

This motion uses the term "islamophobia" without defining it, and without substantiating that there is in fact any such widespread problem in Canada.

This will lead to ideologically-driven overreach and enforcement against alternative points of view—including mature, reasoned criticisms of Islam.

That kind of content-based, viewpoint-discriminatory censorship is unacceptable in a Western liberal democracy.

Furthermore, Motion M-103 addresses a particular religion to the government's special consideration, while ignoring hostility toward other faiths, such as Christianity or Judaism.

Passing this resolution would demonstrate a clear and impermissible governmental preference for Islam over other faiths.

For all these reasons, I strongly urge that you retract and oppose Motion M-103.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
