Ezra Levant - Alberta "Human Rights" Commission dismisses complaint

A "human rights" complaint against Ezra Levant by the Edmonton Council of Muslim Communities has been dismissed by the Alberta Human Rights Commission.

Understandably, Ezra has mixed feelings:

... Is this a victory? I suppose, in a narrow technical sense, it is. I’m off the hook now for both of the HRC complaints. That’s two legal battles done – though I’m still up to my eyeballs fighting defamation suits and other legal actions that the human rights industry piled on top of these complaints.

But I’ve read the dismissal letter three times now, and each time it makes me more angry. Because I haven’t been given my freedom of the press. I’ve simply had the government censor approve what I said. That’s a completely different thing.

Pardeep Gundara – a second-rate bureaucrat, a nobody – had to give me his approval for me to be allowed to go back to my business. For 900 days I was in the dock, waiting for this literary giant to pronounce his judgment on me. And I found favour in his eyes – but barely.

Sorry. I don’t give a damn what Gundara or the HRC says....

Ezra's legal bills should now be paid by those who laid these charges. It's the only way to stop these fine Canadians.
Ezra is right
