“I Am A Free Speech Zone”

Let’s put it on t-shirts to let VANOC know that citizens are in charge in a democracy!

What if we all wore them all around town during the Olympics as a kind of get-out-of-jail-free card? Would it be like when I used to hand out copies of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms to my grade 9 students upon their arrival in high school, and watch them stroll through life calling bullshit?

Maybe it’s more like an inoculation against the emerging police state.

Read some of the nonsense here: http://tinyurl.com/2010Daphne then go make your t-shirt!

  1. Awesome. I am all for this.

    Its amazing how the people of Metro Vancouver will ALLOW this suspension of their rights.

    Ive got it. My shirt is going to say:
    ‘I hosted the Olympics and all I got was $1B in debt and the HST’

    They will compliment each other nicely!
