David Matas relied on a recording of a conference given by then-MSA president Hussein Hamdani at the University of Western Ontario in December 1998. Matas also suggested that measures should have been taken against Hamdani by the University of Western Ontario to discourage “hate speech” on campus.
Point de Bascule disagrees with “hate speech” laws and policies. We believe that the line is crossed when there is a direct incitement to violence and not when offensive remarks are made.
