Brian Lilley Talks About The Canadian Section 13 Thought Crime Going Bye-Bye

Brian Lilley, of Sun News, discusses the Canadian Senate finally repealing Section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act. The part of the CHRA  that made it an offense "to post something online that was likely to expose an identifiable group to hatred and contempt." Emphasis on likely.

For those who might not be familiar- it's the issue Canadian bloggers have been fighting against for years. Many have been sued over it, including Blazing Catfur. It will still be a crime to incite violence, it's just the 'thought crime" legislation that will go bye-bye next year. Finally.

Mark Steyn was the catalyst for inspiring Section 13. After excerpts from his book "America Alone" were posted on the website of McLean's magazine, Muslim activists set out to target both Steyn and McLeans, as punishment, thus Section 13 was born.

Congrats to our Canadian cousins. Keep up the good work. It's a first step.
