As Mark Steyn writes, “in Canada today you’re only entitled to your opinions if [Alberta ‘human rights agent Shirlene McGovern] says you are“.

Whether or not Ezra Levant is declared “innocent” or “guilty” by the Canadian Human Rights Commission of publishing the “Mohammed Cartoons” is beside the point. What is at issue is whether or not a Canadian government agency has the competence to punish someone for what in saner times would be considered a routine exercise in free speech. It is the legitimacy of the Canadian Human Rights Commission that is on trial here. They themselves are in the dock and they have put themselves there.

Note the accompanying video that Richard most appropriately links to.
