I heard yesterday from across the Atlantic (I’m traveling in Europe) that the Ontario Human Rights Commission has declined to hear the Canadian Islamic Congress against Maclean’s on the grounds that they deal in denials of service on the basis of race, creed, etc, and a magazine is not a “service”. That’s certainly true in Maclean’s case: many of us haven’t serviced anyone in years.
Three cases were launched against Maclean’s and me. One against Ezra Levant. The score so far: Two-zip to the freespeechers.
I have no doubt that the publicity surrounding these cases, at this site and at others around the world, have helped bring about this exciting news.
Steyn still faces two more cases in other jurisdictions. He just wrote another classic column about Canada’s “Human Rights” Commissions and their sinister powers. Don’t miss it.
