Star Chamber procedings - Day two


Andrew Coyne has been brilliantly live blogging the abuse of human rights being foisted on the public by the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal in its consideration of a complaint brought by a Muslim radical against Canada's largest news magazine MacLean's.

I know, on the face of it, that the notion of a human right tribunal committing human rights abuses sounds fantastic and Orwellian, but if you know anything about these tribunals you will understand what I mean. If you don't, go look at Coyne's blogging. Just a few minutes doing that and you will find yourself weeping in frustration or gagging in horror ...... that is, if you have a conscience or a brain.

We must rekindle the spirit of William Lyon MacKenzie 1791-1861, journalist, member of the legislature, first mayor of Toronto, and leader of the rebellion of 1837 that opposed the Family Compact.
