THE DAILY CALLER — Canada passed a law Thursday making it illegal to use the wrong gender pronouns. Critics say that Canadians who do not subscribe to progressive gender theory could be accused of hate crimes, jailed, fined, and made to take anti-bias training.

Trudeau’s appointments of Women to major portfolios has upped the political correction memes beyond accounting. And attaching them to “Hate Crimes” legislation is the nail in the coffin of free speech.
