Sanity creeping back in Canada?

We read:

"The issue is hate speech. Ezra Levant, Mark Steyn and Maclean's magazine have all been brought before human rights commissions for publishing offensive words and images. In response, Liberal MP Keith Martin has introduced a private member's bill that would strip matters of expression from the purview of the federal human rights commission.

Meanwhile, prosecutors announced they would try David Ahenakew, the former national chief of the Assembly of First Nations, a second time for comments he made about Jews and the Holocaust.


I don't think ANY political commentary should be suppressed but it really is absurd to let an antisemitic ignoramus like Ahenakew off the hook while attacking truthful accounts of Islam.
