However, in British Columbia the ugly little circus continues. “Rights panel rejects action against Maclean’s,” by Jamie Komarnicki for the Globe and Mail, June 27 (thanks to all who sent this in):
The Canadian Human Rights Commission has dismissed a complaint against Maclean’s magazine over a controversial article on the future of Islam, magazine officials said yesterday.
Meanwhile, a decision from the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal over the same issue isn’t expected for several months.
The Canadian Islamic Congress launched the dual complaints over an article by Maclean’s journalist Mark Steyn. The article, The Future Belongs to Islam, came under fire by Muslim critics who claimed it spreads Islamophobia….
When the truth spreads “Islamophobia,” maybe it’s time for a bit of introspection.
