Western Standard prints 'toons

That's right, today's Western Standard is publishing the cartoons that are causing riots all over the place. The move is already being threatened with a hate crimes violation law suit by the Canadian Islamic Congress, and the WS is stepping up security a little bit.

Ezra, meanwhile, continues to pound the Canadian media for the trepidatious nature. He has been a strong critic of Canadian media on the grounds that they do not publish some obviously news-worthy articles (my article on Jacques Chaoulli and his Supreme Court case was rare before the Court returned their decision, for instance), for their one-sidedness and occasional bias, and for their unwillingness to publish these cartoons which are, obviously, newsworthy.

Good for the Standard.

This is a freedom of speech issue. Let's see just how committed our country truly is to this particular freedom.

(As if you needed another reason to get a subscription to this fine magazine. Well, here you are then. If this doesn't move you to plunk down the dollars for a quality magazine, then I doubt anything will. You can't truly understand what it means to be a Canadian without reading the Western Standard. I really believe that.)
