I usually cheer for Richard in these cases, though here I cannot even pretend enough knowledge of the law in question to offer a guess as to how things will turn out. But BOY!! what about that National Post and their commitment to Free Speech, to the bloggers that got sued for referencing their publication? When the going got tough, the NP got going...fleeing that is, hiding in the grass, grovelling and begging, abasing themselves mightily, promising to raise their children as good Muslims, follow sharia law and take up the veil! (Note: I'm just kidding about that last bit, but I bet they would have if Warman had demanded it!)
Never rely on what a newspaper tells you. Never believe them when they say they're prepared to go to the wall with you and for you. In the end, you will always be on your own.
