First It Was Speech, Now It's Religion [UPDATED]

Jason takes note of Canada's crackdown on those dangerous Christians:

Another karate chop to freedoms in Canada.

The Hamilton Board of Education here in Ontario, Canada has recommended that Christian groups can meet - but only if they agree to have other faiths represented for alternate perspectives. Leaders and speakers from other religions must come and address the students in these faith groups, to gain his or her perspective.

..................

There you have it: state mandated and directed instructions for how we may worship.
This one is worse than Nova Scotia's attempts to quell free speech. At least that (as of yet) has no real teeth to it. Hamilton schools are now actively stifling the practice of religion.

Tell me again how free Canada is?

UPDATE
Edited to get the facts straight.
