Crack Journalist Nails Down The Essence Of The Story

[Headline] Blog posts cited as evidence Maclean’s article encouraged hatred

[Joe Couture,  Canwest News Service] VANCOUVER – Strong emotions characterized the fourth day of a B.C. Human Rights Tribunal hearing into an allegedly inflammatory Maclean’s article, as one of the complainants took the stand.

Dr. Naiyer Habib, a physician and the B.C. director of the Canadian Islamic Congress, said the 2006 cover story by Mark Steyn “demonized” Islam and contributed to discrimination.

One poster referred to a line in which Steyn compared the growing Muslim population in Europe to mosquitoes, adding “best dust off the DDT to eradicate them.”

Note: Steyn was quoting someone else that made the mosquito comment.
