According to a National Post article, federal legislation will see a new statutory definition of hate and could also see the reincarnation of a controversial hate speech law. The new definition, part of legislation aimed at tackling online hate content, will be based on previous court decisions and how the Supreme Court has defined hate, said Arif Virani, parliamentary secretary to Justice Minister David Lametti.
