CALGARY, Alberta (LifeSiteNews) — Two Calgary men are facing charges after someone reported their private conversation on city transit while they travelled to the province’s Million Person March last month. 

On October 24, The Democracy Fund (TDF) announced that they will represent the two men, who were ticketed following their conversation. 

“The men, who have not been told what they did to contravene the by-law, report having had a private conversation on the C-train with a like-minded passenger enroute to the march,” TDF said in a news release.  

The men were charged with violating the city bylaw which prohibits public transit users from engaging in activity that would “interfere with the comfort, convenience, or quiet use and enjoyment of the transit system of any reasonable person.”  

However, the city of Calgary has yet to disclose the details of their conversation which are allegedly opposed to the bylaw.  

The two men were riding the mostly empty train on their way to participate in the September 20 Million Person March to defend children from LGBT propaganda in schools. According to TDF, it seems that another passenger overhead their conversation and reported it.  

The two men were detained by enforcement officers upon exiting the train. Police handcuffed one of the men while they attempted to confirm his identity. Both men were then ticketed and summoned to court in late November 2023 before being released. 

TDF voiced concern over the increase of city bylaws used to restrict controversial, but not criminal, conversations. In July, Calgary passed a bylaw restricting the distribution of images of all unborn mammals. 

According to the new bylaw, “any materials that contain the image of a fetus must be enclosed in a non-transparent envelope with a warning label and the return address of the sender. Violators will face fines of up $1000.00.”  

Earlier, in March, Calgary introduced another bylaw outlawing “discriminatory protests near public facilities” which includes public pools, recreation centres, and libraries, following protests over drag queen story hour events for children at public libraries. 

Likewise, Campaign Life Coalition (CLC) has recently warned of a growing number of Canadian cities passing laws to censor protests against LGBT indoctrination. Cities moving to further restrict free speech include Edmonton, Calgary, Kitchener, Cambridge, St. Catharines, and Waterloo.
