Congratulations to Jennifer Allen for standing up to a bully. And thanks to Coast Reporter for letting us all know about it.
As Canadians we are proud to live in a democracy where each individual is not only entitled to hold his or her own opinion, but is also free to express that opinion openly and publicly.
When we disagree with the expressed opinion of another we have the right to approach that individual to discuss the issues, debate the issues, and even attempt to persuade him/her to see the matter from our perspective. But no one has the right to use intimidation or bullying to attempt to suppress another's expression of an opinion.
