Free speech at risk in Apartheid Week debacle?

It's interesting to imagine what John Stuart Mill would have made of the Ontario Legislature.

The great 19th century political theorist, considered one of the seminal thinkers of Western civilization, is perhaps best known for his fierce defence of free speech as one of the foundations of liberty. Mill surely would have found it curious that elected members of the provincial legislature -- presumably people who value liberty and democracy -- unanimously voted last month to condemn "Israeli Apartheid Week," an annual student-run teach-in held on campuses in Canada and around the world, which takes a critical look at Israel's policies towards the Palestinians.
