Witness In Maclean’s Case: Law Is Practically Useless Because Of Attorney-General Supervision

National Post – [Awan] repeated his complaint that Maclean’s, based in Toronto, does not belong to the Ontario Press Council, and thus there is no authority with the power to “condemn the journalist, condemn the publication, direct them to publish a letter to the editor.”

He said the criminal law against “wilful promotion of hatred” is “practically useless” because prosecutors require the federal Attorney-General’s consent to lay charges.

The rest.
