~ HAPPY VICTORIA DAY! — “I wrote the piece below for Victoria Day 2002. Six years on, I’m not half so optimistic about the ability of the Britannic inheritance to overcome the challenges it faces. Thanks to my present travails in the deranged Dominion, I’ve had to acknowledge the fantastic scale of the Trudeaupian project and the remorselessness with which it has hollowed out Canadian institutions. Like Rick Hiebert, my colleagues at Maclean’s had taken note of the 1938 Supreme Court decision on press freedom, which would appear to be dispositive – were it not that judges are ever less respectful of pre-Charter decisions. Like Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge, Canada has its Year Zero, and a revolutionary’s disdain for the pre-Trudeaupian world. So, on this Victoria Day, I celebrate not modish cant but ancient liberties, in the hope that one day we can recover them” …. (steynonline)

Go ahead. You know you want to.


“I had better tread carefully today, for I am going to write disparagingly about an entire class of sentient beings — and we should all know what has happened to Ezra Levant, Mark Steyn, Kathy Shaidle, Kate McMillan, Jonathan Kay, Fr Alphonse de Valk, Mark and Connie Fournier, Marc Lemire, and a bewildering, quickly growing list of other Canadian writers hauled before the so-called “human rights” commissions (or more precisely, humanoid rites commissars), and shaken down with frivolous but financially ruinous sue-and-stall court litigation, on the suspicion that they may have entertained “hateful,” politically-incorrect thoughts.”
