Steyn On Trial

Writer, humorist and political pundit Mark Steyn, is suffering the slings and arrows of Canadian political correctness run amok. Apparently, a the Canadian Islamic Congress complained that their feelings got hurt when a portion of his book America Alone appeared in Maclean's. Naturally, the Canadian government told the CIC that there is such a thing as free speech in Canada and to stop whining. Oh, wait a minute. That must have been some other government. No, in Canada they haul you in front of the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal and stage what can only be described as a kangaroo court. On the bright side, it's great publicity for his book.
