People’s Party of Canada candidate in Sask. slammed over call for more ‘hate speech’
Cody Payant says his social media post was meant to prevent violence, not incite it
A Saskatchewan People’s Party of Canada (PPC) candidate is defending comments in support of the use of “hate speech” he made recently on social media.
Some groups say they fear the comments could incite violence.
“Our country could use more hate speech, more offensive comments, more ‘micro-aggressions’, more violation of safe spaces with words and more critical thinking,” Cody Payant wrote on his Facebook page and Twitter account on July 16.
