Maybe now they've really started to wake up. Here’s a Globe and Mail editorial today :
Better late than never. The much needed change in mandate suggested by Keith Martin last week could use some strong editorial support too.
... perhaps even understandable that Muslim organizations.... would file complaints with human-rights commissions, if only for the publicity. Less clear is why those commissions would take seriously, even for a moment, the notion that privately owned publications do not have the right to offend or that they are required to give equal space to both sides of every issue.
Neither Maclean's nor the Western Standard published materials that incited violence or other injustices against Muslims. They did not violate anyone's human rights. Recognizing this, the commissions should have immediately identified the cases brought to them as nuisance complaints and dismissed them. That they have not done so suggests a change in their mandates is much needed.
