Ezra Levant to speak at Fraser Institute luncheon

Media Advisory: Former Western Standard Publisher Ezra Levant to Discuss Freedom of Speech in Canada at Fraser Institute Luncheon

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 23, 2008) - Former Western Standard publisher Ezra Levant's refusal to toe the line of political correctness and his decision in 2006 to print the controversial Danish cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in his magazine landed him before the Alberta Human Rights Commission.

Join Levant for an update on his case and hear his thoughts on the importance of protecting freedom of speech in Canada during a Fraser Institute luncheon in Vancouver on Tuesday, May 27.

Levant appears regularly on TV and radio as a political pundit and is the author of several books. Before founding the Western Standard, he worked in Ottawa for several opposition leaders and as a lawyer in Calgary.

Interested media are invited to attend.

Date:      Tuesday, May 27, 2008
Time:      12:15 pm-1:30 pm

(Levant will speak from 12:15 pm-1:00 pm, followed by 30 minutes of questions)

A bully and a nutjob speaking at a right wing institute? BIG FREAKING DEAL.

Fraser Institute is nothing more than a shill for big corporation. Their studies don't stand a minimum chance to any peer reviews. It's a joke not an academic institution.
