Baby, there’s a real chill in the air

Truro Daily News - - OPINION -

To the ed­i­tor:

RE: Baby It’s Cold Out­side… e con­tro­versy over the sug­ges­tively ir­ta­tious lyrics of this duet’s song has evoked more laugh­ter than out­rage.

As long as the Trudeau Lib­er­als don’t amend Bill C-16 to in­clude sug­ges­tive com­ments as hate speech, as they did with fail­ing to use a pre­ferred trans­gen­der pro­noun, or re­quire an at­tes­ta­tion that we do not be­lieve in ir­ta­tious con­ver­sa­tions or be de­nied fund­ing for sum­mer camps, it will still be a laugh­ing mat­ter, de­spite the CBC adding it to their list of banned mu­sic.

Baby, what is hap­pen­ing to free­dom of thought, speech and ex­pres­sion?

Ron Chisholm,

Truro
