VIDEO: [RT News] ‘Unplanned’ death threats: Anti-abortion movie cancelled in two Canadian theatres. [Jul 9, 2019]
Ellis Jacob, CEO of Cineplex, said in an open letter it’s important to remember that Canadian law allows just that.
“Canada is a country that believes in and rallies behind freedom of expression, but that isn’t always an easy thing to do and it certainly doesn’t always make you popular,” he wrote. “In this instance many of us will have to set aside our own personal beliefs and remember that living in a country that censors content, opinions and points of view because they are different from our own is not a country that any of us would want to live in.”
Jacob was responding to what Twitter news aggregator Twitchy described as a “bunch of screeching, angry, emotionally driven, insecure people” who have been threatening movie theaters in Canada to scare them out of showing “Unplanned.”
LifesiteNews reported in May the movie effectively was being banned in Canada because the two largest distributors, Landmark and Cineplex, had no plans to show it.
