There was a thought the other day by some politician to block 50 Cents from touring Canada because he promotes hate and glorifies violence. A liberal MP (Dan McTeague) objected to 50 Cents tour on the grounds that the rapper had criminal record and the “timing” of his being here in Toronto (he was referring to the gun violence in TO) is not right.
I think that was the dumbest idea. What gives him the notion that there are no clones of 50 Cents here in Toronto? Absolutely ridiculous idea to ban hate speech as a solution to all the violence here in Toronto.
