Wildrose Alliance Takes Stab At Centrism

Not quite sure what this means

And it stepped back from demanding that Section 3 of the Alberta human rights code (which deals with publications and free speech) be axed. Some Wildrose supporters, Tory MLAs and other groups believe Section 3 of the act is providing unjust censorship powers to the Alberta Human Rights Commission, a quasi-judicial agency.

Instead, Wildrose members voted to amend the human rights act to "unequivocally protect" freedom of speech and freedom of the press.


...because details aren't up yet on the Wildrose Alliance website: could the section be left in the code but amended around until it was made irrelevant? Dunno. But its interesting that even the Alberta Right has figured out that to adopt the pure Speechy philosophy is to risk being dubbed kooks and racists.

Also shows how utterly dear Ezra is estranged from his own province.

It won't last. I guarantee that if they continue to gain steam (which they may or may not do, I don't know) they'll revert right back to this. It's usually what happens in Alberta.
