Steynianism 147

“The Trudeaupianization of the state is one reason why Conservatives wind up fighting every election within a Liberal frame. The policing of speech exemplified by Section 13 is a big part of that: it ensures that difficult issues can only be discussed within the parameters of “Liberal Values”. So the Nicholson brief doesn’t even make sense even in terms of self-preservation. But for now it’s the only public position a Conservative government is willing to take, and it condemns Canada to restraints on liberty incompatible with a free society.”
