Thank you, Joey! That was quite interesting.

My concern was that a ban on "speaking disrespectfully" would be used by the usual politically correct thought police to stomp out ideas that they do not like. Restricting this to a mere ban on unparliamentary language would allow for the free expression of ideas.

But the information you present leads to the conclusion that there is almost no possibility of preventing anyone from "speaking disrespectfully."

We have laws concerning things such as slander, incitement to violence, etc. I am now inclined to simply not have any bylaw at all concerning the content of speech, and merely rely upon the public laws of Canada.
