Ezra on AM770
Ezra Levant, former publisher of the Western Standard print edition, is an amazing defender of freedom of speech. You really need to listen to his arguments--they are excellent, and get right to the heart of the issue. Section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act really is a "thought crime" provision, and is being made use of to stifle and challenge ordinary political speech in Canada.
Here's Ezra's latest radio appearance on The World Tonight on AM770 CHQR.
We had a chance to speak with Ezra on WS Radio's "Political Animals" a few moons ago. You can check out that conversation here.
Meanwhile, the Conservative response continues to be terrible, absolutely terrible. Justice Minister Rob Nicholson has issued a nice 50-page legal brief lending the government's support to this terrible law. ("But wait until they have a majority..." *deep sigh*).
(Of course, you can follow all of the twists and turns in Ezra's continuing battle for free speech on his website.)

Or his battle to limit free speech via Canada's defmation laws, depends how you look at it I suppose. Or what end of it you are one.
Its getting tired to be honest.

"We should allow fellow citizens to think and say whatever they want unless its violant- Anyone has the right to have what ever opinions they want- no such crime as having the wrong opinion" all that from Ezra Levant.
