Premier Wab Kinew: No Censorship Zones in Manitoba, Please!


Photo source:

Dear Premier-Elect Kinew, 

Whereas you have been elected with the great honour of serving all Manitobans, in the interest of the common good and the flourishing of a prosperous and democratic society;  

And whereas the most enlightened societies have always prioritized protecting the most vulnerable individuals in society;  

And whereas a child in the womb is the most vulnerable of all members of the human family; 

And whereas the most essential ingredient to a strong and vibrant democracy is the freedom of expression, without which every society inevitably falls into repressive tyranny;   

And whereas Ms. Nahanni Fontaine, the NDP MLA for the riding of St. Johns, has introduced unsuccessful private members bills in the past which sought to establish censorship zones around abortion facilities, pharmacies – and even schools – in order to ban peaceful pro-life expression on taxpayer-owned public sidewalks;  

And whereas MLA Fontaine may desire to reintroduce such a censorship bill with the support of your majority NDP government, even though the NDP did not include it in the 2023 election platform;  

Therefore, we the undersigned, petition you: Please do not entertain the idea of bringing forth any censorious “bubble zone” legislation. Many Manitobans would view such a government bill as an unconstitutional attack on the Charter right to freedom of expression, as well as divisive, unecessary and unwelcome.

Please do not impose bubble zones around abortion facilities. Women considering abortion should have the right to hear there is an alternitive having their baby adopted instead of killling their child.
