Censorship

The Issue

Censorship restricts what the public can see, read, hear and know. It happens when some people succeed in imposing their political or moral values on others by suppressing words, images, or ideas to which they object

Why It Matters

Freedom of expression rights are fragile and endangered by efforts of governments, special interest groups or individuals to impose their viewpoints by blocking access to that which they do not approve.

Our Work

The Centre for Free Expression upholds the freedom of the public to read, to hear, to see, to know and to think for themselves.  We monitor censorship in Canada, and, through public education and advocacy, we promote free expression.
