Section 13 ('hate' speech provision) removed from the Human Rights Act.

Senate approves bill:
... A private member’s bill repealing Section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act, which is known as the “hate speech provision,” passed the Senate this week and received Royal Assent.

... The bill from Alberta Conservative MP Brian Storseth passed the House of Commons last summer, but needed Senate approval. It will take effect after a one-year phase-in period.
Good riddance!
