Can you say anything you want? Should you?

Everyone has rights but navigating your rights can be difficult. You have the right to freedom of expression but there are many places where this freedom is limited by laws, rules and regulations, or even customs such as good manners.

By exploring the viewpoints of The Censor, The Speechmaker and The Witness, this book will help you navigate issues of how to express identity and opinion.

  • Freedom of Expression 101 defines rights, freedom of expression and censorship
  • Dear Conflict Counsellor offers real-life problems and solutions
  • Quizzes test your ability to identify censorship and how to deal with issues around freedom of expression
  • A resource guide puts helpful organizations, books and websites at your fingertips

"Spotlights real-life situations that young readers will be able to relate to."

- CM: Canadian Review of Materials

"The accessible language of the text is meant to appeal to pre-teen and teenage readers ... Teachers and counselors might find this book useful as a discussion starter."
