Upcoming Senate Inquiry into Free Speech?

Senator Doug Finley, former Conservative campaign manager, has announced his intention to bring the matter of freedom of speech, or rather the erosion thereof, before the Senate.

Doug Finley is apparently one of Harper's right hands (or so the Star says...) so this might be some indication that free speech is an issue for conservatives. Albeit perhaps one that they are willing to have an unelected Senator take up. Less risky perhaps?

Erosion of Freedom of Speech

Notice of Inquiry

Hon. Doug Finley: Honourable senators, I give notice that, two days hence:

I will call the attention of the Senate to the issue of the erosion of freedom of speech in our country.

From the Hansard.

H/T Stephen Taylor

Good work Doug Finley. The issue may come up either today or in the next few days.
