Please take the time to read about and hear Ezra Levant’s appearance in front of the Canadian Human Rights Commission. We need to thank our lucky stars that there are people like Levant who are willing to pauperize themselves in defence of our fundamental rights to freedom of speech.

For those of you who don’t know the story, Ezra Levant was the publisher of the Western Star and published the Danish cartoons that Muslim terrorists used to inflame hatred of the west. Levant is now the defendant in a Human Rights Commission inquisition brought on by a complaint by a Muslim activist. (Levant is also the journalist who rained on Dion's parade by asking the embarrassing questions concerning Dion’s French citizenship just after he had been crowned King Liberal)
This story is only being commented on in the National Post. Notice that I used the word ‘commented’ because they are afraid to report it. There is nothing but deafening silence from the Star, Sun or Globe, and it has never been mentioned on radio or TV either.
Human Rights commissions are a little known arm of government staffed with social activists and without any accountability whatsoever. They are free of charge for any complainant and in fact complainants do not even have to justify their complaint or undergo interrogation. The defendents have very few rights and their only recourse is to the Supreme Court at a cost of several hundred thousand dollars after being pauperized defending themselves. Yet these commissions can and do impose dire financial and social penalties. Even if a defendent is found not guilty it has cost him at least $75,000, yet there is no cost recovery from the complainant.
It is time to end this commission. Speak up and tell your friends and acquaintances. It is your silence which allows these institiutions to continue.
The only other western country in the world that has ever had Human Rights commissions is France and that was during Robespierre’s Reign of Terror in the late 18th century. Mao introduced them to China during his ‘Cultural Revolution’ of the late fifties. George Orwell used them in his novel '1984' where they were referred to as "Big Brother's Thought Police". They were introduced to Canada by Mao admirer Pierre Trudeau.
Start asking questions about these commissions. If you know someone in the media ask them why this story is not being reported. If you know a politician, put them on the spot for their views. Don't be a Canadian lamb!
