Rex defends free speech in Canada

Rex Murphy muses about what might happen if Canada's Human Rights Commissions become too preoccupied with their persecutions of Ezra Levant and Mark Steyn...

Mostly I fear, if the HRCs are tied up, Canadians will be reading, unguided, what they choose to read, deciding for themselves what they like and what they don't, will discard a book or pass it to a friend, like a column or curse one - lit only by the light of their own reason.The horror! Before we know it, we'll have an unstoppable epidemic of free speech, free thought, and freedom of the press. And, surely, no one wants that. Otherwise, why would we have human rights commissions?
