Ezra Levant: Three More Defamation Suits

...coming down the pipe.  A couple of lawyers from the Alberta Human Rights Commission, and the press secretary for the Alberta Justice Minister.   Presumably, Ezra will use this as an opportunity to campaign against the AHRC, and in particular section 3 of the Alberta Human Rights Act, which is the hate speech clause.  The Alberta government has just reaffirmed its support for section 3, so it will be interesting to see if Ezra's army of kooks is large enough to sway them in their thinking.  Given that Ezra typically loses these suits, it will also be interesting to see if/when Sun News backs down on his behalf.

PS.  Through the first link is a video of Ezra yakking.  I've tried to summarize it above.  You don't have to watch.

Ezra should be removed from the air and prohibited from broadcasting. He clearly needs sensitivity training and some good old fashion manners wouldn't hurt either.
In fact the entire Sun News network should be banned. Shame on the CRTC for allowing Sun News to continue to hurt people.

And let him bleat about free rights? And for the CRTC to use that same censoring for progressive broadcasters? No thanks

Perhaps it's time some court slammed this malicious little shit with an award of serious punitive damages. He's shown that previous judgments have taught him nothing. Put him on a genuine "pay as you play" scale of punitives and teach him that no one is ever above the law.
