Via Blazing Cat Fur -- The British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal dismissed the case against Maclean's magazine and Mark Steyn. (Check out the comments! ;)
Damn. No appeal to a higher court, thus no avenue for attack on the whole stupid "human rights" system. Well, if the kangaroos think they've weaseled out of the anti-HRT spotlight, they've got another think coming.
Here's Andrew Coyne in Maclean's: "(B)ut be clear on this: it is no victory to be told by a shadowy government agency that you will be permitted to publish. This ruling only preserves the tribunal from utterly discrediting itself, and as such keeps alive the possibility that some other complainant can drag Maclean’s or any other media organization through yet another travesty half-a-continent away, at great expense of time and money."
Check out what Steyn himself had to say about Their Marsupial Majesties. Plus -- a chance to buy Kathy Shaidle and Pete Vere's new book "The Tyranny of Nice" in tandem with "America Alone."
Will probably update this post. Been waiting forever for this "verdict," and there's so much to say about it.
UPDATE: The Walk-Man tells me I'm mentioned at Mark Steyn's site! Sure enough, I'm in the "A Joke Decision" post. It's a great honor -- especially as the others listed with me are titans, whereas I'm a neophyte. However, I'll keep trying to do my best to keep up the fight against the Kangarooz right alongside all y'all.
The worst job.... ever! - I have in my live done various lines of work for which to support myself. I can't claim to be a total success, ie Doctor, Lawyer, Statesman, or Plumb...
