OTTAWA: The Canadian Parliamentary Coalition to Combat Anti-Semitism (CPCCA) will convene today, to receive testimony from scholars and experts. The CPCCA is a non-partisan group of parliamentarians whose aim is to combat the global resurgence of anti-Semitism.

Karen Selick, Litigation Director with the Canadian Constitution Foundation (CCF), will be giving testimony to the committee this morning.

Ms. Selick, a lawyer and writer, says: “Censorship is often seen as the solution to bigotry, but that’s a false perception. Once the citizenry gives the state the power to control speech, the state can run roughshod over everyone—including those it was supposed to protect.”

The hearings will take place in the House of Commons, Room 237-C, Centre Block commencing at 11:00 a.m.

The Canadian Constitution Foundation is an independent, non-profit organization whose mission is to defend the constitutional freedoms of Canadians through education, communication and litigation.
