Here it comes —the end of free speech.

According to a report from The Daily Caller, Canadian lawmaker Member of Provincial Parliament (MPP) Kristyn Wong-Tam wants to “create … community safety zones” at the expense of free speech.

These zones would prohibit “any homophobic/transphobic act of intimidation, threat, offensive threats, offensive remarks, protests, disturbance and distribution of hate propaganda” within 100 meters of drag show venues, the politician says.

Watch the clip above.

From The Daily Caller:

Wong-Tam, who uses “they/them” pronouns and is a member of Ontario’s New Democratic Party (NDP), pointed to recent backlash against drag performances in the United States as a reason driving the legislation, adding that organized protests have also occurred in Canada, according to CBC News.

“The topic that brings us here is deadly serious,” Wong-Tam said, according to the outlet. “The rise of hate and violence facing the 2SLGBTQI-plus communities, including the drag artists, happening across Ontario and right (across) the nation has been alarming.

“Drag artists, their audiences, the businesses and the facilities that host those drag performances have been put at risk,” Wong-Tam continued, CBC reported. “Unless we put forward a strategy to protect them, Ontario’s social, economic and cultural richness is under attack. We have to protect that.”
