Magna Farta

"We have a heritage of free speech that we inherited from Great Britain that goes back to the year 1215 and the Magna Carta." Ezra Levant before the Alberta Human Rights Commission.

      Mark Steyn calls the Human Rights Commissioners "pretend judges." And so they are, but the shocking pretense of justice they represent goes well beyond them and their absurd "strict rules of evidence do not apply" procedures. Indeed, the stain on our Canadian polity spreading out from Heather McNoughton's pseudo-judicial body like a sanies from an untreated wound defiles the entire garment of national legality, right up to the venerable white robes of the Supreme Court itself. The so-called Charter of Rights and Freedoms has been shown to be so much bureaucratic wind and none too aromatic at that. And they say the hearing was confined to a basement devoid of windows! Now that must have been cruel and unusual: 
Gasping they asked, Did somebody die? 
         Why, only old Liberty Canuck, came the reply.
