News Reports and Commentary Selected by Franklin Carter of the Book and Periodical Council’s Freedom of Expression Committee.

 

In Regina, two postal workers were suspended without pay for three days in January for refusing to deliver free copies of The Epoch Times.

The two censured postal workers — Ramiro Sepulveda and Linying Su — objected to the newspaper’s content.

The Epoch Times, which sells in many countries around the world, frequently attacks the Chinese communist regime.
