The Toronto Star thinks repeal
of the infamous Section 13 of our Canadian "human rights" Act might be a good idea? Wow. As Jay Currie writes,
the mothership of the Nanny State has said, Scuttle the little pirate!
The battle is not over yet. We must actually
scuttle the little pirate.
Lots of scuzz, on land and sea, would like the right to destroy their neighbours via snitch and tattle in the dead of night, and will give aid and comfort to the pirates.
One of my persistent nightmares is fatuous affluent moms in the Toronto Annex, decking their toddlers out in cute little tees saying "Defend my human rights. SAVE Section 13!"
One wouldn't expect the "moms" to know the perils Section 13 poses to their right to know what is going on in the world. I bet not one in fifty of them knows what libel tourism
means, or why it matters for the future health of said toddlers.
