CBC now covering CHRCs

A few weeks ago Kady O'Malley left for the One good thing about the move is that the national, taxpayer-funded broadcaster is going to take notice of the Canadian Human Rights Commission. In recent years, while Maclean's and the National Post were among the few mainstream media outlets to cover the human rights commission industry, CBC downplayed the story. Perhaps not any more.

 From Mark Steyn's opening statement before the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights on October 5. Section 13 is deeply destructive.

Barbara Kay on the Liberal Red Book III

Everyone should read Barbara Kay in the National Post today where she demolishes the Liberal Party's Pink Book III.
