Ezra Levant & The Politics Of Free Speech In Canada

Ezra Levant is an eloquent spokesman for free speech, as he demonstrated in video here, documenting his being hauled before the Canadian Human Rights Commission for publishing the Danish cartoons depicting Mohammed. Now Mr. Levant covers the politics in Canada as one liberal lawmaker, Keith Martin, is bucking his party and has proposed amending Canadian law to protect freedom of speech. What Mr. Levant describes bears out my thesis that those on the hard left - the progessives, if you will, or at least those people who have progressed beyond classical liberalism - are the biggest threat to freedom of speech and thought in the modern world. Its a fascinating look at the political machinations now happening north of the border. Read it here.
