Update from the Court House
The five-day censorship trial of Khurrum Awan v. Ezra Levant is now half way over. You can attend the trial yourself on the seventh floor of the court house at 393 University Avenue in Toronto.
Awan is represented by two lawyers from Clayton Ruby’s law firm. Ruby himself, who is not in court on this case, is Canada’s most activist left-wing lawyer. He was the lawyer who unsuccessfully tried to sue Toronto’s mayor out of office. He currently represents a U.S.-funded environmental extremist group suing the Conservative government, trying to make oil and gas development more difficult. Ruby also represents Ben Levin, the former Ontario deputy minister of education now charged with making child pornography.
On Wednesday, Mr. MacKinnon’s cross-examination of Awan is expected to continue in the morning. Then Awan’s lawyer is expected to call his other witnesses. They include fellow Muslim activists Faisal Joseph and Naseem Mithoowani. Depending on how long that testimony and cross-examination takes, Ezra could take the stand as soon as Wednesday afternoon.

I kväll sänds Debatt från Mediedagarna på Svenska Mässan i Göteborg. Sveriges mediemakthavarelit är på plats och frågan är: Släpper de fram alla åsikter, eller finns det en gräns för vad man får säga i Sverige idag? Forskaren Henrik Oscarsson kallar det en åsiktskorridor. Enligt honom är varannan svensk skeptisk till att homosexuella ska få adoptera barn. Speglas den åsikten i medierna? Och hur är det: får man kritisera invandring eller feminism? SVT Debatt kl 22.
Ordet måtte jo opfindes i Sverige. Jeg skal se det, fordi Gunnar Sandelin medvirker.
