“11:45 AM The hearing now turns to readings from various blogs I’ve never heard of: The Brussels Journal, some Catholic blog and… oh, the late Western Standard! Not obscure, just obsolete! (The mag, I mean — the website is still in business.) The Western Standard reference: a blog post by Ezra Levant, the defunct magazine’s former publisher, dated Dec. 2 2007. This is slightly surreal: he’s sitting in front of me as I write this, laptop in hand, writing about being spoken about with reference to something he’d written about … this case. This is getting so meta I’m losing track… McConchie on his feet. Leafing through some of the other bloggers in the complainant’s file; ConradUSA, Holographic, Templar… I think they left out the Raelians and the guy outside the liquor store who swears he invented Silly Putty, [but] I’m not sure.”
~ SHOW TRIAL LIVE! STEYN’S NOT FUNNY! “Ezra Levant live-blogs Khurrum Awan, a man who knows how to take a joke …to multiple “human rights” commissions. More live-blogging from Andrew Coyne, and Jay Currie. Plus: The National Post’s Brian Hutchinson goes searching for a British Columbian at the British Columbia “Human Rights” Tribunal; First intermission report – and Meet the Troika!” …. (Steyn)
