Section 14(1) states that no person shall publish or display in a newspaper, through a television or radio broadcasting station or any other device or in any printed matter or publication or by means of any other medium that he owns or controls, any notice, symbol, emblem, article, statement or other representation which exposes, or tends to expose, to hatred, ridicules, belittles or otherwise affronts the dignity of any person because of his or their race, creed, religion, colour, sex, marital status, disability, age, nationality, ancestry or place of origin.
