Which country restricts speech about climate change?

Did you guess “Canada”? The Canadian federal elections agency “will consider any substantial public talk or advocacy about climate change during the weeks around the Oct. 21 general election as potentially a form of election advertising, and thus only legal if it complies with the Elections Act.” [J.J. McCullough, Washington Post]


  • Do they get US media markets where such “public talk or advocacy” might be found?

  • The majority of Canadians live within 100 miles of the United States. With radio, TV, cable TV, and internet, I don’t see how the US media could be effectively blocked.
