This is what I expected. Marc Steyn is widely respected and is NOT known for pulling out the stops. Regretably, Canadians don’t seem to mind if a few preachers or Catholic bishops are ordered not to preach the Bible, but I think this case will backfire on the Tribunals.
The very name “Tribunal” makes me think of Napoleon or the French Terror. Definitely time to shut them down. How about it, you conservatives who are currently running the country?

Unfortunately the federal Conservatives don’t have the authority to shut them down- they’re run by the provinces.

DO you know about Stephen Boisson? He dared to write a letter to the editor complaining about the Alberta Human Rights Tribunal and it being used by homosexuals to advance their agenda. In Alberta of all places, easily the most conservative province in Canada, the Tribunal took issue with Stephen’s criticism of homosexuals (although I guess it was more about revenge for his criticism of them) and he lost his case and was fined. Then jailed for not paying that fine! Welcome to Kanuckistan.
