Freedom of Expression and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stands out from the position of his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, on caricature and freedom of expression. Unlike Macron and all those who defend unrestricted freedom of expression, Trudeau argues that it should not “cause arbitrary and unnecessary harm”.
“We will always stand up for freedom of expression,” said Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. But, he hastened to say at a press conference: “freedom of expression is not without limits”.
“We owe it to ourselves to act with respect for others and not seek to arbitrarily or unnecessarily injure others. You don’t have the right, for example, to shout fire in a crowded cinema, there are always limits,” he argues.
