Mark’s post on the rallying of liberal Canadian opinion-makers against abusive Human Rights Commissions is the most important and heartening development I’ve seen since this whole shameful case began. The dangers to Steyn — and all of us — are still great, yet an opportunity is now present for a truly landmark achievement on behalf of free speech. Stand with Steyn: Abolish Canada’s Human Rights Commissions! Up to now, Mark Steyn has been losing. But maybe, just maybe, he’s now on track to a genuinely historic victory.
At any rate, if Canada doesn’t do something fundamental to rein in its out-of-control HRC’s before Steyn is actually dragged in front of one, Canada will find that it has left an ugly, very public, and perhaps permanent stain on its reputation as a free country.
