Canada faced threats to freedom of expression as government agencies brought charges against journalists who wrote commentaries that were critical of Islam.
Er...no. Government agencies brought no charges at all. Not one. Ordinary citizens did--and not a single complaint has been upheld to date by the aforesaid "government agencies."
The false statement quoted is due neither to accident nor ignorance. Freedom House has shamelessly shilled for the Right for nearly seven decades. The above, from its most recent world survey, is yet another example of why this ideologically-driven outfit should never, ever, be trusted.
NB: Commenter Eliezer made a similar point at the Maclean's site where this rubbish was approvingly reported.
