Three Sirens Over At Ezra's Place

My, but these HRC complainers are busy little beavers, aren't they. It appears that the same chap who filed a complaint against Rev. Stephen Boissoin, and then another against Fr. Alphonse de Valk and Catholic Insight Magazine, has now filed a complaint against Ezra Levant, ostensibly for the offense of deliberately reprinting the words of Rev. Boissoin. First, although Rev. Boissoin was already facing an Alberta Human Rights Tribunal for a piece he had written in the Red Deer Advocate, a twinned complaint against him at the Canadian Human Rights Commission was allowed to proceed. (Q. Just how many commissions can prosecute a person, either simultaneously or consecutively, for the same offense? A. Up to 13). And just last month, the CHRC dismissed the complaint against Fr. de Valk and Catholic Insight, although this decision is under appeal. So now it's Ezra in the cross-hairs.

It's a three siren day over at Ezra's blog -- moreso sirens of indignation than alarm. Read all about it here. It's quite a story, and quite a good rant.

Isn't summer supposed to be a time to relax, unwind, recharge and refuel?
