*In January 2018, Canadian prime minister [[Justin Trudeau]] claimed that [[pro-life]] speech is not protected speech. When asked on where the Canadian government limits free speech, Trudeau mentioned abortion, stating that "an organization that has the explicit purpose of restricting women’s rights by removing rights to abortion, the right for women to control their own bodies, is not in line with where we are as a government and quite frankly where we are as a society."<ref>Richardson, Bradford (January 13, 2018).

*Canadian pro-family activist
[[Bill Whatcott ]], who opposes the homosexual agenda and has spoken out in public and online against [[Homosexuality and health|the dangers of homosexual behavior to the health of its practitioners]], was hit with a frivolous $104 million lawsuit by homosexual activists for handing out flyers speaking the truth about homosexuality at a Toronto "gay pride" parade in 2016,<ref name="Bill Whatcott"/> and was also served with a false arrest warrant against him on the same charge by the Ontario Attorney General's office. After surrendering to police in Calgary on June 22, 2018 (amid a protest by Christian activists against his illegal arrest outside the police station<ref>[http://massresistance.org/docs/gen3/18b/Bill-Whatcott-arrest-warrant/police-station-protest.html Fiery Christian protest outside Canada police station as pro-family activist Bill Whatcott was taken into custody on national “hate speech” charge] at MassResistance</ref>) with the intent of challenging the false charge, Whatcott was subjected to illegal persecution and criminal mistreatment on the false charge by the Calgary police, as well as by Toronto police when he was later transferred to that city (which included being falsely branded a "hate criminal" and being denied food and needed medication and otherwise criminally abused by a corrupt Calgary Police Service officer, being locked up with dangerous, drug-addicted and mentally ill criminals and denied personal care items in jails in both Calgary and Toronto, being criminally harassed by corrupt homosexual Toronto Police Service officer Sgt. Henry Dyck, and unjustly losing his job as an Alberta oil fields bus driver due to coercion against his employer by homosexual activists<ref name="Whatcott false charge"/>), all in attempts to illegally deny Whatcott his right to free speech to spread the truth about the dangers of homosexuality. Whatcott unjustly faces up to two years in prison for what his persecutors speciously claim is "Wilful [sic] Promotion of Hatred against an identifiable group" for passing out the pamphlets at the "gay pride" parade – even though the pamphlets also talked about God's love and "the free gift of eternal life" that comes through repenting of all [[sin]].<ref>Multiple references:
