"Persona Non Grata" author Tom Flanagan
Tom Flanagan, once a senior adviser to Prime Minister Stephen Harper and regular CBC commentator, took a considerable hit to his career following his remarks on child pornography. The longtime academic was widely pilloried in both social and professional media and denounced by some of his closest political allies. Flanagan reviews what he said in a now infamous video and why he chose to backtrack on initial apologies to defend himself in his new book, Persona Non Grata: The Death of Free Speech in the Internet Age.
