Canada charges two in teen cyber-bullying suicide case - World News

I wonder if Canada's free speech laws will protect these guys.

No, because they've been charged not only with cyber-bullying (which is now against the law in Nova Scotia) but also with making and distributing child pornography. In Canada making and distributing child pornography is not considered free speech, it's a serious crime. To the best of my knowledge in all 1st world countries and most other countries, making and distributing child pornography is not considered free speech and is against the law.
