Bill Whatcott Update
I was chatting with Bill and Jadranka Whatcott on the phone this afternoon about Bill’s upcoming trial set to begin next Monday, July 23rd in Toronto.
Jadranka said they were “just surviving” since “Bill is not employable now.” The “hate crimes” charge not only lost him his bus driving job, but it is making it impossible for him to be hired anywhere else. At the moment, he is looking into starting up his own cleaning business.
Bill lamented the hypocrisy of the liberal left, which has charged him with “hate crimes” for peaceably handing out Gospel tracts at the 2016 Gay Pride parade, while anti-Christian gays wearing crosses on their crotches were ignored.
I am very encouraged to see our petition in support of Bill up over 30,000 signatures. However, I would love it to top 50,000 before his trial starts Monday. Hopefully our new attorney general in Ontario, Caroline Mulroney, will take notice and order this ludicrous charge to be dropped.
If people are only “free” to speak what is politically correct and approved by the liberal left, then freedom of speech is dead in Canada.
Bill agreed that if someone is calling for explicit violence against others, then that is where we need to draw the line. But otherwise, people need to be free to say whatever they want to.
