Human rights. Rule of law. Social Media.
Statistics Canada released data in 2017 spotlighting a disturbing 47 per cent increase in hate crime in Canada from the previous year. Online hate speech is on the rise with much evidence showing that groups targeted online are also targeted in-person. In a digital age that allows anyone with a device and an internet connection to become an amateur public broadcaster, online posts and comments are becoming increasingly provocative and polarizing.
