In Open Letter, Cineplex CEO Takes Strong Stand For Canadian Free Expression

CEO Ellis Jacob stands behind decision to screen Unplanned, saying it’s up to customers whether they want to watch it or not.

While most Canadians believe in free expression, the far-left Liberal government has tried to rile up opposition to Cineplex showing the pro-life film ‘Unplanned.’

You would think that people governing a supposedly free country would be fine with a movie being played at a movie theatre.

Yet, Katie Telford tried to somehow tie Cineplex’s decision to ‘Conservative politicians,’ another example of the desperate Liberals reaching again to attack any Canadian who has a different opinion.

Following Telford’s lead, some far-left Liberals started criticizing Cineplex, probably expecting that the company would do what most corporations do when confronted with a few negative tweets: Give in to the ‘woke’ crowd.

Yet, Cineplex did the opposite, instead taking a courageous stand in support of free speech and free expression in Canada.

And now, Cineplex CEO Ellis Jacob has made clear that the company will keep support the right of people to decide whether or not they want to watch a movie.

The Globe and Mail instead of supporting free speech is writing articles about how Cineplex is having to “defend” their decision. Why people choose to give them money so they can receive blatant propaganda is beyond my comprehension. The G&M is constantly sowing gender and racial discord with their SJW op eds while ignoring real news.

Exactly right. What’s to defend? Those that feel the need to impose their will on the free market of ideas are the ones that should be defending themselves.

This is as stupid as UBC being in angst over being dis-invited to the Pride Parade because some parade organizers didn’t like UBC hosting a talk by someone who doesn’t buy into the transsexual narrative. UBC (and the taxpayer) should be happy. A savings of not having to spend money on pomp and circumstance etc for the parage.

Quite frankly, I don’t see a down side to this.

Anyway, Cineplex gets my business.
