CHRC Punts, Press Buys It

A little more free because the CHRC dismissed the case, huh? They chose to dismiss it, airheads, after the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal got the ball rolling on their own hearing.

We’re a little more free today

In the other decision, the Canadian Human Rights Commission dismissed a complaint by the Canadian Islamic Congress against Macleans magazine over an October 2006 column by Mark Steyn called “The Future Belongs to Islam,” in which the author argued Islam “has serious global ambitions.” The Islamic Congress argued Steyn’s column was likely to expose Muslims to hatred or contempt.

Canadians’ rights and freedoms — as they are practised in the press — were strengthened last week.

The rest.
