Kangaroo Kort Kwote of the Day

"I don’t live in Quebec because their taxes are too high.”

The BC Human Rights Commission is turning into a parade of academics, most of whome seem to be leaving the room wishing they had never agreed to testify on behalf of the aggrieved sockpuppets. Still, I'll take Big City Lib's $5 bet that they won't convict. Judging by the decisions on Maclean's lawyers' submissions, they can't wait to slap Steyn and Maclean's. In fact, they've probably already written the decision and will wait a respectable amount of time before printing it off.

Now, I will double the bet and say that, in the end, the Supreme Court of Canada will toss the whole thing. That is, of course, after Maclean's spends more than a million bucks in legal fees.

Don't expect Harper or the provincial premiers to do the right thing and amend the Human Rights laws to prevent further circuses. It would require a level of bravery that hasn't been seen in these parts in many years.

It's far from being over. The "verdict" in Steyn's prosecution still hasn't come down and the ridiculous prosecution of the reptilian Ezra Levant continues in Alberta.
