thePodcast: Victoria lawyer alarmed by antisemitism in B.C.’s capital

For the week of March 10, 2024: 

Where is the line between speech people hate to hear and hate speech? Do hundreds of protesters marching weekly to demand a ceasefire in the devastating Israel-Hamas war cross the line and lose Charter protections when they block streets and chant for violent revolution to end the State of Israel? 

Those are questions explored with this week’s guest Tim Thielmann, a lawyer with the CedarBridge Law firm and a candidate for the Conservative Party of B.C. in the Victoria-Beacon Hill riding. 

Thielmann has authored a legal analysis, called “Hate and Terror in the Capital,” about whether the criminal code and human rights legislation could apply. 

“It baffles my mind that we don’t have police actively investigating this, taking any other steps to prevent these kinds of activities from being funded and fuelled, carried out on Victoria streets, week after week,” Thielmann said. 

The interview came in the aftermath of Selina Robinson’s resignation from the NDP caucus to sit as an independent. The province’s most-prominent Jewish politician accused the David Eby-led NDP of harbouring antisemites. 

Plus, Pacific Rim and Pacific Northwest headlines.
