Calling All Calgarians!

~ OUT OF THE ECHO CHAMBER: CALGARY— Alan Borovoy, Canada’s best-known civil libertarian, will be in Calgary on January 24 to speak on the key issues facing us as we try to balance free speech and freedom from discrimination. He will be joined by Stephen Ward, Professor of Journalism Ethics at UBC, and Michael Vonn of the B.C. Civil Liberties Association for a panel discussion on “What happened to Freedom of Speech?” Offensive speech: What’s legal? What’s ethical? sponsored by the Sheldon Chumir Foundation for Ethics in Leadership.

It would be nice if we could get someone there to report back; and maybe even to ask Mr. Borovoy what he thinks of the use versus abuse of the HRCs in the Steyn & Levant cases. Thanks, Eileen R.! …. (chumirethicsfoundation)

  1. I attended Kahanoff meeting: Borovoy and Ward were in complete support of Steyn/Levant actions vs HRC. Vonn ‘s argument was blatantly “ad hominum” and she managed to tell us of her “T” shirt that reads “I eat the rich”….she apparently supports Kucinic [exposing her flight of ideas]. She was critical of “concentration of media” {?Canwest} Noa Mendelon-Aviv of CCLA Ontario supported Borovoy and Ward.

    N.B. ! NOT ONE MEMBER OF THE PANEL HAD AN ANSWER TO THE PROSPECT OF STEYN RECEIVING A 2:1 VOTE OF APPROVAL OR CONDEMNATION BY B.C., Ontario, or Federal HRCs
