Sorry guys, I'm with Kathy on this...

There's playing the game... and there's selling your soul...

It's "thought crime" meets "future crime," but without the cool flying cars you'd at least get in a dystopian sci-fi flick.

If "asked about the Canadian Human Rights Commission (CHRC) and its processes," the memo advises, "refer [the] letter writer to the CHRC's website."

Sounds like that twist ending to many a horror film, when the lone survivor is finally "rescued" -- and driven right back to the zombie compound.
Gotta confess... I'm more than a little disappointed here.

Pick your battles and win the war. This battle is settling itself.

I dont know what you expect the Government to do.
Are there not cases pending?
Isnt Levant either suing or about to sue?
Can you just hear the outcry of "meddling" that would follow anything the Government says or does?

my question - is this the result of a journalists "anonymous source"?

Just wondering?

"anon says... I dont know what you expect the Government to do."

ah, lemme see... how about, not condone the well-known fiberal tactic of employing weasel words... to back off on a previously clearly stated position?

i love stephen harper... but when he falls short... and who among us occasionally doesn't... he should be called on it.

so go to the article... and this time... read slowly...

"When bloggers first heard of the accusations against Steyn and Levant, and began mounting campaigns to "stop the CHRCs" from further stifling freedom of speech, many were encouraged by a rediscovered, then widely circulated, quotation from future Prime Minister Stephen Harper, circa 1999:

"Human Rights Commissions, as they are evolving, are an attack on our fundamental freedoms and the basic existence of a democratic society … It is in fact totalitarianism. I find this is very scary stuff."
