This is a glimpse of the logical conclusion of Senator McCain's anti-First Amendment impulses. All Canada has done is to ignore its Charter of Rights and Freedoms. It was civil libertarians who set these commissions up with the best of intent.
Alan Borovoy, general counsel for the Canadian Civil Liberties Association, underlined the danger last year after the Islamic Supreme Council of Canada filed a human rights complaint against the Western Standard for republishing a set of Danish cartoons that many Muslims found offensive. In an article in the Calgary Herald, Borovoy wrote: "During the years when my colleagues and I were labouring to create (human rights) commissions, we never imagined that they might ultimately be used against freedom of speech."Liberal fascism may thus be seen as a mere failure of imagination. In this case, a failure to imagine that Government Bureaucracies are self-aggrandizing.
